“Over Rated”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

This place was recommended by a concierge service, how wrong they were. Food was mediocre at best but the wine was good.Our bill at E800 was on the high side but we were having a girls weekend away so not really counting the pennies. The waiter was very charming and when we asked if it was difficult to get in the club, he said not for 4 lovely ladies! He was so wrong- the door man was rude and explained it was a private party ( looked like baldy old blokes with a bit of cash and no taste). . Stay away!

“Over cooked food boring club”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

The food was awful, my starter tasteless, my main course over cooked. The wine was nice. The restaurant had no atmosphere and the service was lousy. Not sure why we tried the club!

The club was full of old men. The music was dull, the atmosphere non-existent. We didn't stay.

There are so many fabulous places in Paris for dancing, drinking and mixing, late into the night - don't waste your time on this one.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

We wanted to check this place out before taking som friends to Paris next year.
We concluded that we will bring our friends to some other place:
This place is expensive (which we expected and is ok if you get value for money).
This place has mediocre food (our veal was the stranges piece of meat we have ever had).
The service is ok but if you don't buy the more expensive wines they sort of look down on you.

“delicious”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

We wanted to try some amazing french food, the type of food the country is famous for, and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious. it lived up to our expectations. My partner enjoyed a meat meal but I'm a vegetarian so ordered the vegetarian options including the asparigus risotto. I've never had vegetarian food so flavoursome! I was dying for more. and the mash potato was to die for. The final bill was quite expensive but it was worth it. we both agreed it was the best meal we had in france.

“The worst place to eat in the world!”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

The food was terrible. I had to send my steak back twice as it was blue, then rare, I settled for less than the medium well I requested. We were given an 'English menu' that was more expensive than the French one and couldn't buy a bottle of wine. They allowed us to buy a 'jug' with contained less than a bottle...whilst a French gentleman enjoyed his bottle on the table next to us. This is not a tourist friendly place! Do not go here!
