Close to Notre Dame

This was one of the cheaper restaurants on the block. The food was average. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't delicious. A good standard meal that won't knock your socks off, but won't break the bank either. It does have a nice view of Notre Dame though!

This would be one of those restaurants where only a drink to rest your feet while sightseeing and to use the bathroom... I do not recommend you eat here. Salad du chèvre chaud was awful.

Stopped here for a drink with a view (Notre Dame right across the street) before a dinner reservation elsewhere. Ordered a cocktail and the result was absolutely the most disgusting battery acid tasting liquid I've ever had. It was nothing like the menu description so I gently flagged down a waiter and said it wasn't what I ordered and I... More

As two young travellers on a budget we opted for the set menu options. Both the salmon salad and the goats cheese salad were decent sized portions for a starter. As for mains, the lamb chops were disappointing, lacking in meat but nice tasting. The fish was nice but a few small bones would be the only slight downside. As... More

We ate here for a late dinner. This restaurant has a beautiful view of Notre Dame at night! The food, well....it was sort of "phoned in" if you know what I mean. Give the tourists traditional French foods with little care whatsoever. I had foie gras which was cheesy tasting and off and then a Beef Bourguignon that was like... More

We ate dinner here on a whim and were not disappointed. Was it a 5 star French restaurant? No. But it was still very good. We did the 3 course meal and had the following: Faux Grois, escargot, lamb, salmon, crème brulé, and crêpes Suzette. We had a nice sampling of the menu. Everything we had was good. The service...

I made repeat visits to this restaurant not only for the view, but also for the boeuf bourguignon! Great location, friendly staff & good food!

My title reflects two themes here. The first is consistent with many comments here. The food is really plain. It is not bad, but just plain. Simply prepared meals that will do the duty of fulfilling your meal requirement -nothing less nothing more. Wife's chicken was a boiled leg that was fried a bit before meeting the plate and fries...

Service was very good, location excellent just next to Notre Dame but not in the worst tourist area a little more quiet. Food was really nice, especially the desserts! And the prize-quality range was good.

We were in a group of 41. They handled it really well. The food was plain and okay. It was well cooked but was lacking in flavour and seasoning. People around me had onion soup and vegetable soup. They both lacked flavour. The vegetable soup for instance just felt like pureed carrots and potato. It needed more salt and could... More
