“Service sucks”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

Wouldn't waste my time. Unless you just need a quick drink. Server was rude to everyone around including us. Took 15 minutes to get us our drinks. Total tourist trap. Move on unless your desperate to go to the bathroom or get out of the rain.

“Very bad and dry dessert”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

Very good location and fairly nice ambient, unfortunately dessert was a big dissapointment. The warm chocolate cake was definitely not fresh, but only warmed up, which resulted in pretty tasteless mixture, and there was definitelly no fluid and soft part in the middle as it is supposed to be.

“Very nice, bit pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Enjoyed an expensive, albeit very nice lunch here. The onion soup was particularly nice and by all accounts the burger was to die for.

“Very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

We went into this cafe to eat dinner because it was raining and we were walking on our way towards the Eiffle tower. There is honestly nothing particularly special about this cafe, it's just another average (kind of overpriced) cafe on the streets of France).
Their food is decent, but I was not impressed with their service. The waiter was not friendly and was not very on duty.
This cafe is a very good place to people watch and car watch though ...

“Typical cafe - average food, poor service but convenient.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013 via mobile

We were walking the river and everything we had passed was packed, until this one which was alone down the street. The food was average, the service was poor (one waiter for many tables). Many people sat for a while then walked out. We have learned not to be in a hurry so eventually we were served. There was one server handling all in inside of the cafe. I'm beginning to realize the cafes are for sitting with a cup of coffee or tea and people watching. Not for meals.
