Each time the same: friendly people, good food (although a bit expensive), but the service organization definitely has to be improved: a few skilled waiters are doing their best others, less skillfull, are loosing time... read more

Wonderful food and wonderful service. I had a filet Mignon with Bearnaise sauce and it one of the best meals I had while I was in Paris. I would recommend it.

My wife of 5 years and I dropped in here during our honeymoon without a reservation and had a great table with a great view of the Eiffel Tower. When we came back with my adult children and spouses (a party of 6), even though we had reservations and had asked for a table outside, we were shuttled unto a... More

We only stopped to have drink in the outside garden area. Very nice view - Eiffel Tower, however it is based next to very busy junction. Quite pricey however the area it is in speaks for itself. Highly recommend Grimbergen beer. Light and refreshing, served with one slice of lemon. Service was swift and polite.

We only used the cafe portion of this restaurant. It has been completely renovated and looks much nicer. Nice view of the Eiffel tower and people watching ( tourists and locals ) Limited snack menu and the usual offerings for beverages. For the price charged I wish some munchies were given also

Located at a busy crossing at the Seine with a view on the Tour Eiffel, still a must visit while in Paris. Just enjoy all that comes by on the streets and on this terrace with a nice cold drink. The food is okay but as in many places in Paris just overpriced. We had salads and fingerfood, which was... More

The seating is packed outside to have a good view of the tower at night, so get comfy to whoever is seating next to you. The food is fairly average for what you pay in price. But it's more about the experience. If you order red meat, be prepared for it to be rare.

Staff were super friendly. Steak and chicken were both excellent. Desserts were outstanding. Pain perdu (like a bread and butter pudding) was light and delicious. Terrific view of Eiffel Tower.
