we asked where we could eat nearby a good beef tartare - and somebody sent us to this place...I mean yes you can get Steak frittes and Tartare but minimal service and attention and not worthwhile if you have such good authentic restaurants in Paris. BUT generous portion, we didn't go home hungry but felt pushed out to free the table. this chain won't see me again.

Rude, appalling service and not worth the walk to this place go next door to the Italian for a good steak or great pasta and good service. The staff here should take a lesson from the waiter next door.

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).

When i visited Paris, I ate at the Hippo near the hotel a couple of times. The price fixee dinners were very reasonable in price and tasty.

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.
