Long wait...but worth it

After some ping-pong trying to book a table, we got lucky with a Friday night booking. A frosty welcome for being 20 minutes late was more than made up by the super food, atmosphere & fun fellow diners to chat with. Our main course took an hour which was a drag but they plied us with champagne... read more

Just been for lunch and want to add my voice to all the good things people have said. We were lucky and got in without a reservation. We went for the carte Blanche and there was no problem that I didn't want meat. I like not knowing what's coming next. Food was plentiful and delicious, the rice pudding was divine,... More

Very unassuming from the front you would walk straight past. Inside, such great fun, a lively place to eat, where everyone chats to each other and the staff. We smiled and laughed all evening. We sat with a delightful Norwegian couple and she summed the restaurant up perfectly when she described it as an experience... You have to go with... More

Our anniversary dinner was a prefix meal and it was fun watching the chef prepare each of the courses he would clap his hands twice three times to notify the waiters that the course was ready and they would scramble to pick up the course and get them out to us there was some interesting dishes and all of them...

If you like to be insulted, then THIS is the place for you! Go there and pay three times the price for a simple meal and bad wine. Bon appétit!

Popped in on the way to the Eiffel Tower on the off chance that there was a free table at lunchtime, and by chance there was. We had the house terrine to start which was so flavoursome. We both then had the lamb chops, medium rare, which were also excellent, followed by the famous rice pudding, which again was superb.... More

Started with the razor clams. The portion was HUGE, enough for 2 people to share. Then had the ris de veau. A little rich, as it always is, but still delicious. Desert was the "Fine de cacao «neige de coco»" which was a perfect way to top off dinner.

Went to Paris with my wife (at the time girlfriend) and I wanted to really splurge on a very nice dinner. I searched long and hard trying to find a fine dining experience that would be unlike either of us had ever had. When I realized that I was not a millionaire I decided to stray away from places that... More

An imaginative and surprising tasting menu in generous portions served by friendly staff, except for a dessert consisting of a large bowl of plain rice pudding with two pots of cinnamon and honey on the side (good but very basic compared to the true haute cuisine of the rest of the meal). Still, the rest of the meal being outstanding,... More
