Tables are low to the ground (felt a bit like Alice in Wonderland) but the food and service was fun and very enjoyable.

My husband and I came upon this restaurant while exploring the Les Halles area close to our hotel, Novotel Les Halles.

We were greeted and seated promptly and were 1 of 3 tables occupied in the entire restaurant, about 7pm. I must point out that i spoke French to the staff while at the restaurant.

It took a good 10-15 minutes waiting before our order was taken. My husband noted that the waiter/maitre'd approached our table to take our order then saw a friend/acquaintance and had a chat with him first before coming back to our table. I was tempted to walk out at this stage.

Slightly annoyed, we placed our order: Regina pizza, linguine carbonara and a carafe of chardonnay. Simple order for a quiet restaurant, right?

My husband's pizza arrived in 10 minutes then waiter disappeared. After another 10-15 minutes passed and the pizza almost finished, I hailed the waiter to find out what happened to my order. Another 5 mins and they came back with 'no carbonara available'. We suspect they simply forgot my dish. To make it easier I asked for spaghetti bolognese, which arrived within 5 mins with a basket of bread (no butter) from a silent maitre'd.

I must point out that they did make good by not adding my dish to the bill and the food was tasty.........BUT there was no apology or explanation, the bread arrived as an afterthought and the very least I would have expected was for the 2 plates to arrive at table at the same time or for the waiter to have noticed mine was missing without me having to get his attention15 minutes later and while only 3 tables were taken in the whole restaurant at the time.

This is definitely the worst restaurant I have been to in terms of shabby and lax service.

Our latest trip had become something of a food fest, my appetite had disappeared some what, I prefer to eat lightly during the day and have a larger meal later - the richness of what I had over the previous couple of day had really hit home.

So I only had the anti-pasta selection of cold meats - it was delicious an excellent selection of meats. Everyone else had a lovely meal to. i had a bottle of Bordeaux that went down so well I can no longer remember what anyone else had.

Great service - we got there just before last service.
