Visiting Paris as a group of 10 for my 50th! Wonderful night in this rustic, stylist restaurant. Packed but service still good. Food to die for , price reasonable , well worth a visit if you can get a table

Tonight, after a day full of soaking in the beauty of Paris, my husband and I started searching for a place for dinner. Being near Norte Dame, I was fearful that all of the nearby restaurants would be mediocre at best. To my surprise, we found a highly reviewed (on TripAdvisor) restaurant close by. Even better was the fact that... More

My wife picked this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and our party of 4 was skeptical when we reviewed the menu. Each of us tried something different and were not sure what to expect. I had pork with fresh spinich and potatoes which were incredible. It was easily the best meal we had in Paris, and that is after 6... More

I have been there with friends for an evening dinner and it was a really nice experience. Food was tasty and the service good. On top of that, the restaurant has a great location in a busy area at night. If you go there, it will be a good and safe choice!

Have been there yesterday and wish to give my best recognition to this place because they are really taking care of intolerances within their menu. My daughter is intolerant to lactose but she found very good dishes and in particular a good preparation of the personnel who served dishes without any content of product having lactose. The menu is varied... More

Celebrated our anniversary with a meal at this lovely French/Thai fusion restaurant in August 2016. One of a few restaurants open in Paris in August. The restaurant is located a few minutes walk from Mabillion station, down a lovely street decorated with restaurants and quaint shops. We arrived at 7.30pm to an empty restaurant, greeted by Frank who spoke great... More

My wife, son and I had dinner here twice in four days on a recent trip to Paris. As other reviewers have said, their use of herbs and spices is excellent - for example in the lamb tagine main course. Service was excellent on both evenings from Anne-Laure and Marie! The only downside was the lack (or failure) of the... More

We walked 5 mins from our hotel down this little street littered with places to eat. They all looked great and had their own charm but this stood out. Their menu was not extensive and they had a prix fix entree plat and dessert which we got. The chocolate fondant was delicious and my steak was also very good. Great... More
