This is a small restaurant on Rue Clement, just a block off the Blvd. St. Germain in the heart of the Left Bank. Very friendly staff with a full-range menu representing meat, fish and vegetarian items. An excellent and complete wine list with a range of prices within each varietal and region offering a chance to decide your price point.... More

As a French person, I love to eat good food. This restaurant is a very good place if you want to eat good food with an authentic service. In addition, it is located in one of the best place of Paris. I will be back next time I will be in Paris.

The husband and wife team that run this gem of a restaurant offer a fresh take on French recipes combined with warm hospitality. I am truly perplexed at some of the complaints I have read in earlier posts. My wife, daughter and I arrived just a bit before closing for lunch and were graciously invited to stay as long as...

I went there for a nice dinner with my wife looking for a French Bistrot of a local atmosphere. The restaurant had only 3 other tables occupied and the hostess/waitress seated us at the worst table looking at a wall, and right next to a velour drape, which made us feel claustrophobic. I ordered a sea bass, and I could... More

I very rarely give poor reviews. I have to in this instance because I don't want anyone else to waste 120 euros on indignant chefs and rude staff. I ordered a steak medium rare. A good portion of the steak was burned, like black and crusty all the way through. Fully one half of the steak was inedible. This dish... More

We had visited this restaurant several times in the past and had good experiences. Now, they have an attitude! On this visit, instead of help with and conversation about the menu, they dropped a rough english translation on the table and moved on. My wife ordered a very pricey sole which arrived almost raw and cold. Worst of all, we... More

Mty husband loved his entree in this family run business; i had the chicken and it was fine but not great. The owner is a little curt but we ended up with a very nice waitress who was patient with our limited French. If you only speak English, this is not the bistro for you.
