We were craving steak and this restaurant delivered. Although we had difficulty communicating, the food was great. The staff was very nice and tried very hard to please us.

Nothing to recommend here. Very average, but add in some highly amateurish service (forgot knives, forgot salt and pepper, then told had no pepper, had to borrow from another table, left waiting for ages for bill) and you get a poor overall experience. Dont go, you will be disappointed, but not quite enough to refuse to pay.

Hippopotamus was close to our hotel, we stopped their one day on our way out to go sightseeing. The food was very good and was very filling and the scenery of Bercy Village added to the experience.

Nice little restaurant offering a wide variety of choices. We opted for a burger with fries and a steak with pepper sauce. The food was good and the service was quick. Staff were friendly and it was a lovely experience sitting outside and watching the world go by with a nice glass of Sauvignon. Plenty of free fresh bread!!

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
