We ate here one Saturday evening and luckily we were hungry, as this is more a German than a French restaurant - to be fair they do say its Alsace cuisine.

On our trip to paris we searched a close Restaurant to our hotel and find this restaurant. It is a bit expensive, but the meals (we took the menu) we're alright. Unfortunatelly, my dessert was so sweet and hard, which was sad for me, cause i like desserts usually. Anything else was fine.

Then you'll love this place. Huge portions and mostly meat on the menu. Kind of pricey but worth it in my opinion. Also, very nice decor and great service. We were also surprised when both of our meals came out on some sort of apparatus. A little over-the-top presentation but interesting.

Visited the restaurant with family for dinner. Decor and atmosphere was typical Parisian, service superb and food quality was above average for some and not so good for others. Desserts were exceptional. Fairly good in terms of value for money.

We came here per a tripadvisor forum about soup de l'oignon, and asked for it. We had 2 soups, and then meat with fries (I didn't have a main course because I was too full from the soup) water and wine. It ended up being very expensive but well, the food wasn't bad so I can't complain much! If you... More

We had a lovely meal here with choices from the affordable express menu. Generous and tasty servings of duck terrine for entree and equally generous and tasty choices for our main course. Service was friendly and efficient.

This is a beautiful belle epoch restaurant and the dish was worth the 20€ it cost. Nice people, a pretty place, good service and generally good food, so why was I disappointed? The meats served as part of the choucroute were cooked separately and not finished in sauercroute, so they had a flavor missing. Nevertheless, a goo dish in a... More

We have eaten here several times on trips to Paris in the past, so when we were wondering where we could go on our last night in the city this time, we decided to return. My husband chose the Chez Jenny special sauerkraut, which he usually has when we eat here. It's fairly expensive, at just under €30, but you... More

Lovely place and delicious, if expensive food.

I came across this restaurant on one of my walks through Paris and thought I'd give it a try. It specialises in Alsatian food (all kinds of sauerkraut dishes and flammkuchen/tarte flambée). I had codfish on sauerkraut and it was pure bliss (both the fish and the sauerkraut). Now I come from a country where sauerkraut is nothing out of... More
