A brilliant little bistro with a very warm atmosphere, lovely staff and delicious food. The bill for two people (2xStarters, 2xMains, 1xDessert + 1 bottle of wine) came to about €114 so not cheap at all but ok for Parisian standards. The waitress was absolutely fantastic, she translated the whole menu for us and recommended great wine. I'd definitely go... More

We visited this restaurant because it was quite close to the hotel we were staying in. So glad we stopped in. The food was lovely, especially the truffle ravioli (a must have). The rumpsteak and entrecote were both beautfully seasoned and tender. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The dessert was nice, but save your appetite for the starters... More

Looking for the perfect small French restaurant close to the Madeline, then you must go here. We had an amazing experience from our waitress who translated the entire menu in English to the food which was simply Devine. The duck was perfectly Cooked. The specials were great. The room is full of locals and not touristy at all. Must go!!!!

This was a lovely restaurant hidden in a cool little neighborhood rarely seen by visitors (just far enough off of Champs Elysses to be hard to find) unless staying in nearby high end hotel. The service was wonderful, rather small place, only 2 servers, but she had 2 big groups and only several tables of 2 and yet she was... More

We know we can always bring visiting friends (we live in Paris) to this restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is good and the owner is always welcoming and friendly. We have been going to this restaurant for years and we know we'll get a nice meal in a lovely place.

This was recommend by our hotel, but we checked trip advisor first and then decided to give it a go. The waitress was wonderful, explained the menu by line in English; helped us choose a wine which matched our taste. The food was excellent and we'll worth the money. The cost is what you expect to pay in Paris, but... More

Another trip advisor home run. Wife and I wanted nice last night out in Paris. While I can afford Michelin 3 stars, no meal is worth $ 500 a person (Noma only costs $250). Just off main fashion drag; 2 blocks from US embassy. All indoor dining with cosy atmosphere, no smoking, excellent English, small well done menu, excellent and... More

We made a last minute reservation at 8:30 on a Wednesday: we'd had a long day touring the Louvre, and after trekking our way back to our hotel, we wanted something relatively close. This place was astoundingly good. The waitress, Celine, was the nicest Parisian we met the entire trip. She offered to translate the menu for us, made (very... More
