Good evening but value for money questionable

A little rushed but good attentive service. Value quality/price not convincing particularly on main courses, but we ate well and enjoyed the evening.

Discovered this spot by accident on our first night in Paris. Arrived at noon and missed lunch so we set out from our hotel to explore and find a spot for an early dinner. Most local recommendations from the hotel concierge did not begin serving until 7 PM. The amazing view of Eiffel Tower and bustling tables drew us in.... More

The food here was very reasonable - though the kitchen was, in our view, more accomplished with the seafood and fish than the steaks. However, service was friendly (and bilingual) and the beautiful and relaxed venue couldn't have been more Parisian with a cue over place d'Alma to the Eiffel tower. Very nice - though not cheap.

If you can sit out on the terrace, the outdoor heaters keep you really warm and the view of the Eiffel Tower is fantastic. The service was typical french, so not fantastic, but the food was really nice and the wine choices good too. Very romantic restaurant and great for a low key dinner.

Yes it is a wonderful real Parisian restaurant, café, brasserie with a view over Eiffel tower. In a historical décor & nostalgic lovely setting with lamp shades on tables. The sea food, oysters & Mets are very good with a gastronomic set menus at affordable prices. Good for all day dinning, lunch & dinners.

Visited this restaurant at the recommendation from our Paris tour guide. We ordered the daily special of prawns with linguine. Food was delicious. The servers seemed a little put off that we didn't speak English but weren't overly rude. Just seemed annoyed with us. The food was fairly expensive. Would return for future visits to Paris but would likely just... More

What you see is what you get. Went there for a glass of wine, it was excellent, view was breathtaking. Definitely worth every penny of 7 euros that I paid for a glass of wine. I was satisfied. Service not so quick but tolerable slowly.

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
