We had three different dishes, two different steak meals and one with duck confit. All meat from all dishes was dry and had no taste at all, potatoes ok. Service very slow, we had to wait very long for the bill as well. Not recomendable

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards

Hello. They have a number of separate rooms and so I am sure a Private Dining experience could be organised however I do not know if they would do a buffet or a smaller set menu. Best to contact restaurant directly.
