On an unassuming street in Paris, we were served fantastic French cuisine. The restaurant itself is small and narrow but it is like a charming farmhouse in the countryside complete with rough stone walls and cast iron fixtures.
The service was excellent, with an enthusiastic waiter describing every dish and wine in detail in both French and English. They were extremely friendly and not like any Parisian stereotypes.
Now the food itself was of course the highlight. Four courses stunningly presented with just the right quantity, not too little or too much. The no menu policy is really a great idea, we only let them know items that we disliked and they did all the choosing for us. We had a soft shell crab in celery creme as an amuse bouche, a beautifully cooked piece of trout, followed by the most tender and flavoursome veal. The dessert of vanilla and mascarpone cream topped with green tea sauce, strawberries and a giant lump of candy floss provided an excellent and novel finish.
This is somewhere I will definitely return, to eat delicious food without having to expend any effort in choosing what I eat.
