“Perfect Paris Meal”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

This was my first meal in Paris and it was perfect! I was seeing a show in the neighborhood and this was near the theatre. I was seated promptly and my order was taken right away. the waiters all speak English and they were very kind and friendly. They were cute too…just saying. The meal was perfect! Beef bourguignon, tart tatin, and wine! It was all delicious and reasonably priced. Great find.

“Seriously bad food”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

We ordered two meals: duck with potatoes and a creamy pasta. The results were poor:

The pasta was with out any cream and the time used to prepare it must have been one minute: cooking the pasta and throwing some cheese and ham on top - and a few sad mushrooms. It was dry and with out any taste.

The duck was reasonably okay. Deep fried unfortunately. The potatoes had been exchanged with semi deep fried chips/ French fries. And nothing more. It was with out any taste and the person preparing it would (again) not have spent more than one minute doing it.

My girl friend and I will never go there again and I also suggest you find somewhere else to go.

“Perfect Find”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Our hotel was very close from here, and before heading home we wanted to eat, since the food at airports is not our fave.

What I love most about Paris' bistros is that the service is fast, but the food is delicious. And this applies to this bistro. We ordered what was like a croque monsieur, but with tomato, a toast with ham and cheese with a side salad - very nice. And also the French burger that came with lovely french fries was delicious - the meat of the burger, mmm.

Lovely place to eat a lunch.

“Perfect first night in Paris ”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended to us by the receptionist at our hotel. It was our first night in Paris after a of day travelling and it was perfect. A good selection on the menu, very different from 'home' which is exactly what we were after. The waiting staff were wonderful, happy to speak in English, given an English menu but it was all very Parisienne: excellent food and wine - everything we'd hoped for :)
