Typical French Bistro

Good food, friendly, fun staff, street noise added to the atmosphere. The service was attentive and prompt, and the food and drinks selection was very good.

After a long day at Disney my partner and I wanted to stay local. This was just over the road from our hotel. We were blown away with the quality of the food and the atmosphere. I had the cheese burger and he has the mixed grill. I can safely say I have never eaten anything like that cheese burger,... More

We went there because it was close to our hotel. As we went inside we felt welcome and got a nice table for four. The menu was in french only but the waitress did her best to introduce us to their variety. She even offered us to take the menu of the day even as the offering time was over... More

I'd love to say we visited this restaurant on purpose bus sadly that's not true. Our itinerary (done by my daughter) took us on quite a long trip to visit Holybelly, when we arrived it was worse than a jam packed tube in the rush hour and we were told that we would have to wait for one and a...

This restaurant was close to our flat, so we ate there several times. Waiters are very polite and friendly and they really try to help and serve us. The food was delicious. Coffee is great. And one sweet- strawberry cream- was so tasty. The only thing that they could change, so that everything could be perfect is to add more... More

I have to say that of all the positive experiences I had with Paris cuisine, this is definitely not one of them. Charcuterie plate was good, but everything else was distinctly lackluster.

A very cozy place. We had a couple of meals there while staying at hotel Magenta. The menu is very simple and in its simplicity is very French. Loved the crepes, the duck confit, the foie gras penne and the roasted chicken with potatoes. Loved the relaxed atmosphere of the place. If we happened to be in the neighborhood again... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this place for an evening out, we had dinner and drinks here on a Saturday night. After a long day walking around Paris, we just wanted somewhere easy going with good food. This place already caught our eye but was also recommended by our hotel around the corner. It surpassed my expectations...Excellent service, great food and a... More
