Our family ended up here on Thanksgiving -- it was a random selection based on location and appearance. What a find! While the restaurant made no effort to provide any American Thanksgiving fare (why would it?), we enjoyed excellent duck, salmon, snails, and desserts. It was a great meal, and we lingered beyond the 3:00 closing time at lunch. Yet... More

We loved this restaurant. Delicious food and nice atmosphere. We are returning to Vincennes in September and plan to eat here again... hopefully with a little more French under my belt!

We were here for lunch last month. The service was quite fast and efficient. The food was good and it is not too expensive. We ordered 3 different entree, plats and some wine. It was around 35 euros. It is very close to the chateau de vincennes.

We had a lunch here with are business group of 14 and the food and the service were very nice. The courses came very fast so we did not lose to much time. Also the wine was good. The view of the castle is nice.

We went to this restaurant following a recommendation from a friend. We went on a Saturday night around 19.00 without a reservation. The Maitre said they could fit us in and we were directed to a table, ok so far!. We were the only diners and the next clients came in around 20.30 so there was no atmosphere - probably... More

Escargot was awful but my entree (steak) was okay. My husband was displeased with his meal. The staff was nice enough but we had much better food and service just down the block.

My husband ordered a well-done steak which came out burned. You couldn't cut it. When we complained, the chef sent back a steak that was so rare you would've thought we ordered steak tatare. We realize that you take your chances with a well-done steak, but burnt is not well done. That's just bad cooking. We highly do not recommend... More

We are in Paris for 1 week and based on the hotel's recommendation went to the restaurant for dinner last night. 2-course fix-prix for €24.90 or 3-course for €30.90. Food was excellent and service was good. Will definitely return!

We had Sunday lunch here and were lucky to get a table without a reservation. It’s a favourite spot for Sunday lunch family gatherings. The service was exceptionally good, as was the food. I had the Gigot d’Agneau, which was delicious and tender and my wife had an excellent Magret de Canard. For dessert I had the fruit “tatin” and... More
