“Awful food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

The menu had limited healthy choices. We had to wait about 45 minutes for our food. The kids' burgers were horribly undercooked even though we had asked for them to be well done. E coli anyone? The staff were polite but not particularly attentive. Would definitely not go here again even if it were a cold rainy Sunday and places were closed ( which was the case for us).

“hippo steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2010

We weren't sure to check this chain of French steakhouses since Paris has such an enourmous offer of restaurants, but we gave it a try and it's not bad at all.
The meat is good and tasty, they serve it as you want it to be (rare, medium, well done...), with sauce and fries or other vegetables aside.
When you are in bad need of a steak and are not sure where to go, Hippopotamus is a safe choice.
