We have been eating here for quite a long time. For a St Germain restaurant this is cheap, very cheap. The food is good but basic - the main trade off is the way the tables are rammed in. There is a mezzanine floor - but this itself has been forced into the tiny restaurant. The service is variable as staff turnover seems incredibly high. The wine never tastes that good - I wouldn't spend too much as the price doesn't seem to affect the quality!
It is, however, great fun and full of atmosphere. As is typical of cheaper restaurants outside Paris, you retain the cutlery you use for your stater for use with the main course.
There are no bookings accepted - so, if you want to be sure of a table, get here for 7.30. Often the place will be full by 8.00.
Finally, make sure that the review you read relates to the right Pied au Fouet. There are, I think, three restaurants of the same name with similar menus (all owned by the same family) and i have seen reviews of different restaurants that have slipped in to the wrong page.
