It's an old style bistrot like Parisian restaurant. Good comfort food, try the Confit de Canard! Fantastic. Even the bordeaux house wine is great. Always full so make a reservation. Don't know why but always full of brazilians.

Had a meal here, following the tourist trail arising from the Obama's eating here. Had the fish special which was 28 Euros- ouch, that is expensive for a main course. Even more so considering the portion size was so small - I thought that the President must have had a big Mac before (and after) eating here. The food was... More

What a lovely cute restaurant. We had dinner here (they take reservations) and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The steak frites was yummy, wine list = great and the crème Brule delicious. The food presentation could have been better but I couldn't fault anything else. Our waiter was friendly and prompt. We sat outside under the heaters (in September)... More

We visited La Fontaine de Mars on our first night in Paris. We did not make reservations, as we were not sure what time we would be dining. I would highly recommend having them, especially on a weekend. It was later in the evening and they were very accomodating, even though we did not have a reservation. They seated us... More

It was a great plave that we had a lunch in. We had steak and duck which were both great. Fiendly staff and beautiful terrace. A bit expensive but I guess it is just Paris where everything is expensive.

We sat upstairs in a small, quiet room, much quieter than downstairs. Upon entering the place we were immediately asked what we would like to drink while our... More

We had magret de canard, confit canard and escargot for the lunch. There were very good, the cuisson was great, i suggested "a point" than "bien cuit". The service was excellent, ppl were very gentle and nice. Wish that we could try other specialities another day!

Authentic French Bistrot on our favorite street of St-Dominique. The service, the food - we had Duck confit, cassoulet (huge portion enough for two and then some) and the kids had steak frites. Of course we started with escargot in garlic butter and tete de fromage. We liked it so much we went back another night to end our vacation.
