Imagine it. After years of hearing about it, there you are. Sitting with a glass of wine in the early afternoon or, for the breakfast set, orange juice and a delicious croissant and there you are, on the Champs-Elysees. The restaurant is brightly lit and the food is standard fare served promptly. But it is the tables - sitting and... More

We took a leisurely stroll down the Champs-Elysees, so much going on: locals on bicycles, tourists taking photos and everything in between. We decided to lunch at a typical French bistro on the way called Le Napoleone. I had my first Croque-monsieur on French soil – one of my favourite sandwiches! Although my sandwich was super yum, everyone was very... More

The service was very good - friendly, helpful, patient. Had the Onglet de Boeuf which was very good. Bottle of Bordeaux to accompany the meal. Ended with apple tarts (not the... More

I don't get some of the comments here, you're not in the land of "Have a nice day!" It's France, it's Paris. Waiting staff here are doing a job of work, and nine times out of ten, they do it professionally, unfortunately for some, they don't kiss your derrière while doing so! We had the fixed price lunch menu, which... More

I really had bad experience at this restaurant. First i was surprised with the really unfriendly staff, i wanted to order but he came with an anger face and yelled to me and asked his friend to serve me. His friend is nice, but at the end he manipulated the bill. Just be careful when you go to this restaurant,... More

Excelent french food, Pinot Noir red wine, best service in the centre of Paris. We spent a romantic dinner with my beautifull wife and can recommend this restaurant.

The staff just added 10% as tips without our approval and claimed this pertains to service charges which is not mentioned in the menu ... any way the manager apologized... just be careful when visiting..

On a day of shopping and walking around the shops on Avenue de Champs-Élysées. We stopped here for a snack. Had a couple glasses of wine and a snack. Both good. Such a great place to sit on the sidewalk cafe and enjoy the day. Inside had a really nice bar downstairs. Looks like a nice place for dinner. Service... More
