We had dinner at this little off the main street restaurant Anderson were all pleasantly surprised. A jewel for sure. Although quite small it adds to the charm. Simply,the decor, service, and food were outstanding. Thumbs up all the way.

Great service, interesting authentic fresh french cuisine, charming decor for a very reasonable price. This is probably as good as it gets for Paris.

We have been coming here since 1985, when Hugo's parents Claude and Yvette managed the restaurant. It is a very nice small place, and a booking is recommended. Food is delicious and the wine list is good, do ask the waiter for recommendations. We have been bringing frieds both French and foreign friends to the restaurant, and it is always... More

At the recommendation of our son, a chef and restauranteur, we ate at this tiny restaurant right after we arrived, and based on a superb meal ate there several more times during a recent prolonged stay in Paris. The regular menu is interesting, but I chose the specials each time. Each was a sensational dining experience: very interesting and creative... More

we went with friends at the start of a long weekend in Paris, having booked from the UK. It was amazing having a table beside the cooking area, so we could see the array of amazing dishes being cooked and plated up. After a very friendly greeting from the chef-patron, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner: foie gras, andouille, veal all... More

Called for a reservation from overseas - it was worth it! The most lovely possible restaurant in the middle of Paris, like in a small country village. 8 tables practically in the kitchen. The Chef is opposite you and you see all the dishes being cooked from start to finish. One single waiter covers all - a bit slow but... More

Chef Hugo is the proprietor of this exceptional restaurant in the Louvre/Rivoli area of Paris. First and foremost the food is of high quality, well executed and representative of contemporary french, urban cuisine. The food is standard fare for those looking for familiar products that will satisfy and delight without unpleasant surprises. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The setting... More

This tiny restaurant was in an old building with original wood beams and great atmosphere. I ordered from the specials all of which were excellent. My husband had steak and frites, which were just fine. We were able to just walk in for lunch.
