Came here for lunch a little bit after most of the crowd had arrived. They accommodated our party of two, and the two gentlemen working that day deftly served great food and drinks to all, with charm and grace. I had a very nice entrecôte with frites and a belgian beer, and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere on the sunny day.... More

I really enjoyed having lunch there with my mother and friends. We ordered some onion soups, tartar and wine - food was delicious and with good price. People who work there were very friendly and very helpful. I also have to admit that they speak good English. Location is also good, the street is quite in the center but not... More

Had a dinner at this cozy place, grilled chicken and salmon, both perfectly grilled and served with delicious mashed potatoes. A bit more vegetables on the plate wouldn't hurt, but it was still great. Rounded it off with nice crème brulee and an espresso. The waiter was very friendly and spoke enough english to understand us and translate parts of... More

I have eaten here several times. This is a pleasant, rather small and unpretentious restaurant. The food is good and honest. The service is friendly. It's quite well located, just off a main street and therefore fairly calm. If you look for an enjoyable meal at a reasonable price, this is a good choice.

Great little cafe close to the Voltaire metro station. My girlfriend and I both had the onion soup to start, followed by a Caesar salad for her and a steak and chips for me. Food was very well prepared and the service was faultless. It will be tough to find other places to beat this for the rest of our... More

I had first a tea an evening, then i met some very nice people from the neighbourhood. They invited me to come again and we did share an excellent bottle of wine. The manager did a vegan dish just for me. And his mojito is exceptional.

We happened upon this wonderful cafe just off of Place Voltaire, and were pleasantly surprised by the food and atmosphere. Though it is a Parisian cafe, there's something different about it. We loved it and will return.

It's amazing where your feet rake you when you're exploring a city. We discovered this cafe, located slightly off the main street and hence a little quieter than the nearby competition. The menu was comprehensive for mid-day dining and I opted for a salade césar which tasted delicious and was presented well. I'd like to give special mention to our... More
