no one talk english, long waiting time, very warm inside, no good ventilation, food quality is just OK and not worth the money.

Hippopotamus is a safe choice, but nothing special. We were looking for "safe" that night, so it was fine. But you probably can do better if you're willing to be a bit more adventurous, and take a risk.

BTW, heavy on the meat there, so if you're not in a beef mood, don't go there.

This Hippopotamus steakhouse is OK for what it is. All of the customers sitting near to us were French speaking so it must be popular with the locals. Despite having exactly the same menu, we just thought the food wasn’t as good as the smaller branch 200 metres down Boulevard du Montparnasse close to Vavin metro station. But the restaurant does have multi-lingual staff so language is unlikely to be a problem for many foreign diners.

Are you looking for a reliable place to eat? This is it. Great price, I suggest duo or trip Hippo or Mullan.
Is open whenever you need. Of course it will close eventually, but in like other restaurants where do not accept you after lunch hour, "c'est ferme monsieur", this restaurant is still there...
