“best meal we had in paris”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

opportunistic finding for our last night in paris and what a find. Lovely old building with fascinating history, (read on their website).
Very busy restaurant but the service was outstanding. Good choice of food, my french onion soup was delightful followed by veal stuffed with mushrooms and my husband had duck. All the food was well presented, served hot and with a suitable break between courses. This restaurant has a lot to be proud of, high standard of customer service and fine food. I will return on my next visit without a doubt.

“Good food, great location, price ok”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Very nice restaurant in the Latin Quarter opposite Notre Dame. Atmosphere is upscale but not pretentious. Staff very friendly. Tables too close (not uncommon in the neighborhood). Dinner for two with a bottle of table wine was 100 euros. Very nice experience.

“Spectacular view and good food experience”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Let's not lie to ourselves: eating watching Notre Dame is enough to be satisfied even if you end up eating just some buttered bread!
This restaurant combines a very good menu ( at an affordable price) with a great view. Waiters are not the politest persons, but the do all speak english and that is a big plus in a country where almost no one does.
It is mandatory to book a table since they are full most of the times, and i greatly suggest to go there during lunch hours for a much more relaxed environment.
The plates are good, well presented ( although some of them are composed in advance and completed on request, for example my fois gras had some kind of sauce that was stuck (as in dried) to the plate as if the chef composed the plate in advanced and completed it by putting the slice of fois gras and the finishing touch at the end. Very nice wine list, dessert were good as well.
Check came out to be at around 80 € for two ( 40 each).
Overall would recommend!

“Excuisite food”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Very delicious and fresh food. We went there quite early (7PM) and were the first guest, but after about an hour the place was full. Music was mainly English songs, but soft enough to ignore it. The waiter was friendly, with no word English. Also, the rest of the guests were French families, couples or businessman. So if you want a authentic French restaurant, go there! Don't worry about it's neighbourhood to Notre Dame, I don't think there are many tourists in there.
All of our food looked and tasted excellent, the wine and aperetif was good too.
We sat there for about two hours and had starters (I recommend goat cheese with bacon), main course (of our four dishes I liked duck breast with potatoes most) and dessert (crème brûlée and mousse au chocolat are advisable) and paid ~110? for four people (with discount- if you reserve, you get 40% off)
