We come here every time we are in Paris and it never disappoints. The service remains quick and cheerful! The food, splendid. The duck, of course, pates, even the smoked salmon is first rate. All with wonderful gherkins, onions in large mason jars. Chocolate desert but also lovely fruit salad that actually tastes of fresh fruit, not the oversize, not... More

We sat in a glass bubble overlooking the passers-by in Rue de Vaugirard, sequestered from smokers. Considering that the waiters were struggling with English and we were struggling even more so with French, the result was truly remarkable. We opted for "le menu," a sort of set 3-course meal. With a small carafe of rose`, a larger carafe de eau... More

I had the bistrot menu here... apperitif, apperizer (foie gras), main (magret de canard) and dessert (baba au rum) all for 25 euros... the food was so well-cooked and the price was fantastic. I recommend it to anyone!

If you have a chance to visit around Montparnasse, why don't you try this Bistrot. We took a menu with aperitif, starter, main dish and dessert. I enjoyed duck carpaccio as a starter, duck breast with mushroom and potato as main dish, and creme brulee as desset. The cost of the menu was around EUR25 and every dishes were very... More

This was the only low point of our stay in Paris to celebrate my wife's birthday. We dined here on the evening of 14th February and knowing it was St Valentines Day I had booked our table some weeks in advance. On arrival we were shown to our table away from the main restaurant area where we felt a bit... More

We ate here two nights in a row. The server was excellent! He took care of the whole restaurant very efficiently. Had the pre-fixe menu! Great Deal! Foie Gras or Pate-both are excellent, the Duck was great as was the Cassoulet. Make sure to leave room for dessert! Good price for food and wine! Will go back again next time!

After trying to understand the French restaurants we came across this one for its 3 course and half a bottle of wine deal for 43,50€ so we thought we would give it a go. For starter I had the Pâté, the duck and Creme Brûlée and without a doubt a lot of thought and hard work had gone into the... More

This restaurant offers food form the south-west area of France, so expect duck, foie gras (also sold to take home) and cassoulet. I enjoyed a fixed menu as part of a business trip. I was impressed with the speed and effectiveness the waiters were taking care of all customers: restaurant was full on a tuesday evening. Nice food: grilled goat... More
