I visited this restaurant with my two kids. The decor is traditionally French and it has a good ambiance. Food is amazing. The best escargots I have ever tried. Duck a la orange is very good. Strongly recommended. Good prices for the quality.

This is a very Parisian place. One of the few where the servers actually speak French. They are really great and you can enjoy a fabulous hamburger. I normally get the Salad frisee avec lardons, my favorite salad from France. They have some great wines...More
