Early Lunch

We found this place by chance having taken a wrong turning so decided to stop for lunch. We opted for the fixed price menu and each had a starter and main with 2 orange juices and 2 large beers. The food was freshly prepared with good service. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

Very nice little brasserie, very friendly. Decent to good food, not terribly expensive. The waiter insisted on teaching my 19 year old daughter some French (very nicely!), and made her order in French..very cute. The set menu is a good value.

We went here for a cappuccino as we were really tired, needed a rest and it was near our hotel. There were lots of people dining here and when we looked at the menu it had the same dishes as lots of other restaurants. We felt we weren't missing out on much because of this. There was a guy outside... More

Compliments to the chef, the food here is amazing. Generous portions for very affordable prices. Really friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. I would highly recommend Le Magenta to everyone.

Very adequate Brasserie nearby Gare Norde. Cote De Boeuf cooked perfectly to medium rare. Food is quite standard, meets expectations. A number of beers available on tap.

Dashed in out of the rain for a quick lunch, and because the rain kept coming we had a leisurely lunch instead. Didn't have high expectations but was pleasantly surprised. We both opted for the simple 3 course lunch menu with half a litre of Sauvignon Blanc, with coffee and a tasty little olive tapenade while we chose our meals,... More

The place is nice, the wine was OK. The service good enough. But the frankfurters were bad. Wish I had ordered something else.

After following other recommendations we went for dinner . Starter was ok. Steak for main was grisly and by and large inedible The chocolate brownie for dessert, after some deliberation as to wether the " dessert on the daily suggested menu was in fact available came and was a hard lump of uncooked dough .

After a long and tiring traipse through Paris, we sought out a near-by and reasonable place to supper. And right down and across from our hotel, with a similar name, we found solidly good food and excellent and caring service. We each had the same special, a steak, and all three of us agreed it was excellent. The wine prices... More

My first impression of this cafe is that it has really lovely staff, as we were lost looking for our hotel and the staff came out of the bar and asked what were we looking for and gave us direction. So when we have settled our bags, we went back to have breakfast here and we were not disappointed. The... More
