Our best meal in Paris was at this small, one-starred bistro near the Eiffel Tower. Seafood dishes are the specialties, and each is presented on unique plates to match the course. Excellent service and very affordable price for the quality

David Bottreau told the kitchen Mehdi Karamane, formerly second restaurant, went head today. Together they reflected on a new kitchen , which is the new life given to the restaurant : a tinted gourmet cuisine in a bistro generosity. They dust off the gourmet kitchen , and make accessible star, with only watchword quality and creativity. The kitchen retains its identity by selecting marine classics of the marine world , but also delicious and unknown products to the general public . The noble products such as sole , lobster , caviar are offered in this suggestion, according to arrivals. Seasonal products are showcased , guaranteeing freshness preserved , and starred cuisine is reflected in specific executions, controlled , in order to rediscover and exhaling in the flavors.
