Great food and service

Traditional rustic French food. A short stroll from the Eiffel Tower. Our waiter was extremely helpful and polite and everything he recommended was delicious from the main to the dessert to the lovely bottle of rosè. Very much worth a visit.

My favorite restaurant in Paris. The service is absolutely impeccable and the food is wonderful. We have been there for dinner multiple times as a couple but took our children for lunch there for the first time this trip. The staff treated them beautifully and were so accommodating. I cannot say enough marvelous things about this restaurant and the staff... More

This was a very popular restaurant where reservations seem to be a must. Although the food was very good and the service was excellent it was a little expensive even for Paris

This restaurant has 2 floors, if you speak French, you will likely be on the first floor and if you speak anything else, you will likely be on the second floor. Tight and cosy restaurant. Had the Tuesday special which is the pork bone lentil soup was very good at 22 Euros.

I love this place. We passed by earlier during the day and made reservations even though we showed up a little late the hostesse was kind enough to find us a table. The food was really good we also got bread and slices of meat to have with our wine that they brought before the meal which I thought was... More

A friend had recommended this restaurant to us. We were offered a table on the terrace since the weather was good, but since the terrace turned out to be next to the street (there was no upstairs), we ate inside. The night we were there, there was large group of ladies from Dallas that were having a good time, so... More

They have it here and it is out of this world. We had lunch and enjoyed the cassoulet here immensely. More difficult to find this trip than our last. Not too far from the Tour Effel, within walking distance on the Rue Dominique. Too full for dessert!

So glad we ate here! We were actually scheduled to eat at Ralph's, but the night we went there their kitchen was broken! So we were able to scramble and get a table at La Fontaine de Mars. This is a classic brasserie. But the important part is that they clearly put so much effort into everything. No coasting at... More

We came 20m before closing time and we were greeted by a friendly, handsome woman that is perhaps the owner. Even if we asked to change our table everyone kept his friendly attitude (it's not a given in Paris). Mostly a "meat place" I had a duck that was good but not top cuisine, nevertheless the price of most dishes... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on our first night in Paris & sat outside. Food was delicious, service was a little slow. I had the roasted chicken & my husband had something like a filet mignon special & we ordered the white asparagus appetizer special. We both ordered the cheapest glass of rose (€6,5) as well. All was tasty but... More
