“Lost our booking”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We booked a table at this restaurant a week before traveling to Paris. When we were going, the staff had lost our reservation and there was no way we could get a table. They were rude and not helpfull.

“Great night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

We recently went to this restaurant with our 10 and 12 year old. The staff was amazing and even customized the menu for the younger palate. The food was outstanding and our 10 year old budding chef had a view of a Parisian kitchen. Great fun.

“A chic and cozy bistro that has given us the most memorable dining experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

If you go to Paris, this is the restaurant you cannot miss! The food was excellent, service was friendly and attentive (the waiters were also tall and good looking), great ambience, comfortable seating, it's not cheap but it's worth every penny (the total bill for this meal came to 149€) !! My partner and I ordered the soft boiled egg (their signature dish) and lobster salad (the lobster meat tasted sweet and springy) as starters, for the mains we had their much-praised sea bass with crispy almond topping and Beef Rossini (the steak was cooked to perfection, the foie gras really just melted in your mouth, yum!!). Then followed by the to-die-for dessert, the famous Christian Constant's light millefeuille to share, it's just divine! It tasted so light, so creamy, the caramel burst in your mouth with that sweet, soft and fluffy whipped cream filling...it is the dessert that would make both your "heart" and taste buds smile!! On top of the amazing food, we were so lucky to have met the talented chef and "le patron" of the restaurant, Monsieur Constant, in person when we came into the restaurant, he just happened to be there! We were so excited and instantly I asked if I could take a photo with him, he graciously accepted and said "bien sûr" and afterwards he wished us " bon appétit". WOW!! What an honour to be able to have a picture taken with the renowned chef, Monsieur Constant!! No doubt, we will definitely dine there again when we are in Paris next time!!

“This place is close to perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

We came here in June after a really happy holiday in Provence & back in London we doubted how good it was so I didn't do a review.

Today we went back & had lunch & it is a really fabulous place.

The decor is pleasant - seating comfortable. The staff are without exception charming.

Then there is the food. Every course was wonderful. The truffle eggs are heaven. The duck with cherries & sugared almond superb & it goes.

We let the sommelier choose wine by the glass for us. They were perfect.

Look I can't fault this place. It's expensive but it's quality ingredients, cooking & service.

My husband even spilt a bit of sauce on his shirt & a waiter saw him trying to clean it. In a minute he was given hot water & a little spray can of stain remover !

Go for a special occasion - you won't be disappointed.

Go you won't be disappointed.
