good atmosphere, okay food and service

We came here for dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised by the intimate atmosphere. We ordered a chicken dish that was quite good, but we were disappointed by the very gritty texture and the strange taste of the ice cream we ordered for dessert.

Shameful! Do not confuse with Le Comptoir, the famous one. This has got be one of the worst restos I've been to. Soup de poisson was watered down liquid of some sort with no seafood taste at all and the accompanying rouille was unacceptable....8euros for this ? Also had their combo plate of roast chicken, pork, and "duckling" with potatoes... More

Did not have as much time in Paris, but had to stop by! They continue to change the interior of the restaurant. Nice to see Elodie have a wonderful dessert, wine, and excellent live music! O Comptoir remains one of my favorites because of the food, service and entertainment. Having wonderful singers while enjoying a meal makes O Comptoir stand... More

I wanted to take my family to a Greek restaurant in the Latin Quarter that we visited in the past. To my surprise the place closed down and we were left to look for a place to eat. After walking in the alleyways for several minutes we stumbled onto this place because of the delicious looking chickens roasting in front... More

We had a spontaneous dinner here and were very impressed by the lady singing and playing the piano. This restaurant has a lot of ambiance. The only disruption was the hostess, due to no fault of her own, banging the door open and closed constantly as it appeared to have been broken. It didn't hep that it kept bringing in... More

I don't usually take the time to give very bad reviews, but this place is worth it. Stopped here to eat with my family (non-French), attracted by the chickens rotating on spits outside the entrance. It was a mistake! We ordered specifically a plate of that chicken, together with a side of the potatoes soaking in the grill under the... More

Food just ok, service very slow, try not to be served by the manager, she is very rude with the customers. Not recommended for sure. They won't see me again.

Very good experience. At last a non touristic restaurant in the area. Good food. A nice atmosphere, friendly staff. The plus is the live music. You can also buy french souvenirs to go like wine, desserts, jam... I love this place and try to stop by every time I'm around.
