“A truly lovely French restaurant !!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Having read the reviews, I booked the restaurant for Saturday evening, the place is a lovely French romantic place. Monsieur Firmin and staff were excellent! The food fantastic, it was a no rush service and I had previously written to Francis as our visit was a special occasion, for dessert we were treated to a special birthday cake with lit candle for my wife. The food was cooked to perfection, reasonable price and a true French experience. A must visit place and must book place. It will be our first place to go when we visit again. Well done!! Fabulous

“Savoury with every bite...”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Our welcome was a bit cold, we arrived at the open at 19h00 with no prior reservations to find the staff tabled and eating. They were quite surprised to see us and did not know how to react and asked us to wait outside. As we were about to choose another restaurant, they came after us and invited us in. The food was succulent, the staff friendly and to make amends, the digestif and coffee was on the house. It's very small, with about 20 seats which fill rapidly, and since they don't push their patrons out, quite the contrary, don't expect to wait for a table, reserve in advance, but make sure you go!

“The perfect spot for a true French repast with the added attraction of the view of the Eiffel Tower light show”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This is a charming small restaurant owned by the quintessential French host. You will feel welcome from the moment you step inside this charming room. The owner oversees everything with the precision of the surgeon he formerly was. The menu is varied and has appeal for all palates and you must save room for dessert as the owner is the creator of these sublime treats. The wine list is well balanced and help is there for your choice. If you dine in the evening the wonderful location also affords a lovely view of the dazzling light show on the Eiffel Tower.

“where the locals eat”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

My boyfriend and I ate here back in 2008. It is a memory sealed in my mind. It was a damp november night, and we were walking the streets of Paris around our hotel looking for some dinner. We stumbled upon this sweet spot and we talk about our experience here often. The owner showed us a fantastic time. Food was delightful - true parisian flare. But, I remember more how we were treated like old friends by the owner. He was so warm and friendly - really hit the mark for us. Americans always talk about how Parisians are snobby - not in my experience. Also, the eiffel tower is blocks away - great for a stroll after dinner. We are hoping to return next summer - this will be one of our first stops.
