“Great New Restaurant in Saint Germaine des Pre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We chanced on this place during our latest visit to Paris. Great new restaurant in the 6th. Could tell this place was good because it was full of very happy diners having a good time. Food was excellent, well prepared, and innovative. I had the Spanish pork loin which was juicy and succulent. Wife had the sea bass with very tasty tomato puree' and tempura vegtables. Their take on the ever ubiquitous French onion soup was outstanding. Fantasic flavor. Wines were very good, the Cote de Rhone was excellent and very affordable. Entire dinner was very reasonable. The owners (a young couple) even came out to the table to see how we liked the meal. They really want to please. Service was excellent and the waiter was very helpful in selecting our entres. I was so happy with the entire experience that I left a generous tip over the built in gratuity.

“Great atmosphere with really friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was very close to our hotel so very convenient. the staff all had very good English and were very friendly with a good sense of humour. We had a lovely meal with good wine at a very reasonable price for the centre of Paris. Would certainly go back again.

“Perfect Lunch in a friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

We luckily got the last table one rainy afternoon where we had a delicious lunch here. The creative main dish I had consisted of a white fish in a wine based broth, covered in a layer of whipped potatoes broiled to a crisp, brown tinged topping. It was absolutely delicious to push my fork down through the crisp top into the soft potatoes and perfectly cooked fish below. The vegetable starter, grilled vegetables with a tasty dressing, was very satisfying as well. My daughter enjoyed her chicken salad very much, and the chocolate mouse was excellent. This was exactly what we wanted. The service was very friendly and helpful, and I hope we can return soon!

“Young owners at their best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

The young owners of this restaurant are giving it their all. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable - very clean. Solid, delicious food at a good price. The duck was outstanding. Loved my turbot. Order a bottle of brouilly. Suggested, it was perfect for our meal. We're stopping by again before we leave Paris!
