My boyfriend and I ate at this restaurant on our last night in Paris and had a lovely meal and several very nice drinks. Our waiter (sorry we didn't catch your name!) turned out to be a very keen visitor to England and was so lovely. We asked him to recommend a cocktail to us and what wine he thought we would enjoy after we told him our preferences, and he didn't disappoint! He also gave us many tips on where to (and where not to) visit in Paris, and about his travels around the world which was very helpful for us! The price of the food and drink were also very reasonable. We would definitely return.

We booked a table for 8 and were greeted and hosted by a great waiter, full of character, kept us entertained all evening.

But.. Tables and seating areas were dirty. French Onion soup was cold, and cheese croutons burnt. We mentioned this to the waiter and he made a joke he would shoot the chef... hardly what we wanted to hear. We then waited what felt like an eon for the main courses. (must remember en France a meal is a leisurely activity).

I had chicken caesar salad, with tasteless hard cheese and cold tiny pieces of chicken in a dressing that had far too much mustard in it. Colleague had the XXXL steak served on a wooden board that was cold, chips too cold.

Not my finest dining experience in paris, so wouldnt go again. Cold food is unforgiveabble.

We stopped here for a late supper while in Paris since it was near our apartment. While we were greeted warmly, seated & our order taken, after that we were pretty much ignored. I chose chicken with mashed potatoes and my husband chose penne pasta. There were no salads or vegetables with either, just chicken with mashed potatoes and a dish of pasta with grated cheese on it. The waiter did not come back to ask if we wanted more wine or bread or dessert. We were disappointed in the service at this restaurant. The food was ok but because of the service, I would not return.

Friendly staff who made you feel comfortable in a buzzy restaurant. Plenty of good food on the menu and a happy hour that lasted 4 hours+. Good to pop in to and enjoy wholesome food such as salads, burger, chicken, pasta etc

The first floor is quiet, nice view.
