This tiny restaurant in the rue Princesse near the Mabillon Metro is surrounded by bars and a museum and well hidden from the occasional pedestrian. But it had been found this evening by a mix of tourists and locals who were delighted by a large menu selection of traditional cuisine which was prepared and presented superbly by the chef. Mine...

Having stumbled upon it just before opening for dinner service we had no expectations and were pleasantly surprised. The intimate dining room was was full of ex-pats, not too many locals, but the service was friendly, diners seemed happy, the food was good and the prices were reasonable. A good option in the area.

We visited this small intimate bistro after a pre-dinner drink at the nearby O'Neil bar (on the street parallel to Rue Princesse). It offers a comprehensive list of courses and a small wine list with options for all budgets. Surprisingly, there aren't any fixed-price menus but prices are very reasonable for the quality on offer. We chose a sea bass... More

Small and cosy French restaurant with a fairly extensive menu that goes well beyond the staples. Food was fresh, good quality, well cooked - the entire place is tiny so you can see the chefs at work. Service was efficient and friendly, and the meal was exceptionally good value for central Paris. Bustling atmosphere with some large groups, but despite... More

Slightly off the beaten path of the big streets of Paris, this tiny restaurant has some of the finest selection of foods, best service, and overall the most wonderful atmosphere of any place I've eaten in Europe. The chocolate mousse it exquisite.

My boyfriend and I were recommended to this neighborhood of the city by some trendy locals who we asked on the street. It was the only packed restaurant within a two block radius, so we knew it must be good--and we were not led to disappointment. The small space is extremely intimate, with two people working in the front and... More

We read some of the trip advisor reviews and decided to try it. A great little French restaurant just off the Main Street of saint germain. Fantastic beef and lamb. Our son loved the ravioli Wonderful.

Two in the party ordered the same dish, one came to table hot and one stone cold that was sent back. Crab bisque was tepid and not particularly inspired. Advacado-crab salad average with dressing served in a hollowed out Advacado skin that was rapidly oxidizing, rather off-putting to my way of thinking toward end of the course. Other tables appeared... More
