“Don't go! ”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Great location and pricing seems attractive. Food is well below average. The French onion soup was bland, the mussels were disgusting. My husband ordered a steak and it was awful. He ate two bites and that was it. The waiter became very upset that we didn't like the food. He never offered to try another dish or discount the meal. We both got the three course menu and didn't even get our dessert. As we were leaving, the waiter was mumbling something in French and slammed the chairs on the ground as we walked away.

“DONT GO”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Bistro in the Latin Quarter. Absolutely the worst service I have had anywhere. Guy mocked us, brought the wrong order, told us they were out of bread when everyone else was getting some. It was unnecessary to treat us this way. Just don't go

“Bistro in tourist area..”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We decided to have a lunch in this area, tried to avoid of tourist traps, but must say that the value we got was lower than we expected especially because of the weak main course. Nice terrace just infront of church of Saint Severin. Playing jazz from speakers, quite good service. Onion soup, snails, desert ok. Boeuf Bourginon very weak. (2 lunch menus + 0,46cl wine = 50 €).

“Great For People Watching”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The location is on St. Michel Bvd, right next to Le Depart (another restaurant/cafe, and close to the Seine so it is tourist-laden) but that is a good reason to go here. I didn't expect good food because it is a tourist spot. I ordered a mixt planchet which was a variety of cheeses, charcuterie, tiny salad, cornichion, and bread. It was very good. There was a nice mixture. I enjoyed eating it with a glass of wine and a carafe d'eau and watching all the people. I like to do this at least once while in Paris and watch humanity float by.
