Ok, this is a fun and unpretentious place in the middle of the tourist area that has a limited menu, but what it does have, it does very well! Our wait staff was very polite and informative. The menu consists of burgers, club sandwiches, desserts and various side dishes. There are also several salads. We ate at night and had... More

We had a nice Sunday brunch. But, I have to remark on the burgers that we saw being served. Wow. They looked fantastic. The brunch was hearty and extremely tasty. The only disappointment was the bacon -- but maybe it's not served as crispy in France as in North America.

My friends and I had dinner there over the summer. The outside tables seemed nice, and we found a great deal on lafourchette.com. Knowing that the lafourchette discount does not always apply to the whole menu, we asked our waiter what was included, what was not. After checking with his manager, he said the discount applied for the whole menu.... More

We visited this restaurant twice with our boys whilst in Paris. It was a friendly, down-to-earth and fun diner. Straightforward food at very reasonable prices in a lively setting. Staff were very helpful generally. Would recommend.

My partner and I have visited this restaurant twice, once last year and again just recently. During our previous stay in Paris, we visited and were very impressed with the quality of the food - my partner opting for steak and myself for the fish and chips. The presentation also left an impression on us. The total bill was relatively... More

A friend of us suggested that if we are hungry and have a burger in mind, this is the place to go in Paris. We followed her advice and we were not dissapointed. It is situated in the heart of Quartier Latin and we visited it in a rainy afternoon around 17:00. It seems to be open almost all day... More

Love at first sight and marriage at the first bite. We were supposed to go somewhere else, but just the sight of the burger made us stop. We decided to go in just once to taste, and we couldn't help going several times. Fantastic staff and amazing food a good price! Definitely worth visiting!
