During a recent two week visit to Paris, this was the best bistro. Charming and even elegant decor, very good food, superb service. We had dinner there with Parisienne colleagues who chose this restaurant. The magnet de canard was excellent, as was a fish entree, the octopus salad, mushroom mousse with shrimp appetizer, and the baba au rhum for desert. We researched bistros very carefully beforehand, ate at several, and this one was tops.

Love this place. Expensive, but you get the best bistro dishes served up as they should be with no messing with them. Sitting outside under the arches eating eggs backed in red wine jus, white asparagus, veal chop, just perfect Paris.

Visit each year when visiting Roland Garros.
Recommend booking as the restaurant is understandably very popular. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff make for a memorable evening and dinner.
The food is first class!

It’s difficult to express the magic done to simple tomatoes but that were fantastic as was the casaulette... I was able to finish the former but the latter was too much. Nice wine selection and the deserts looked excellent .

Went back to this favorite restaurant during my last trip to paris. And was not disappointed they still deliver tasty food in a busy yet casual atmosphere. Will return again
