Very creative dishes that you cannot find everywhere. I have been there several times and everything I have eaten was almost perfect. They also have a wide selection of wines. Service is average like everywhere in Paris but the rest is very good. They don’t take reservations so you have to wait in line but it’s good in the sense... More

Food experience was incredible. Everything from the salmon, beef carpaccio and fois gras appies, the thon rouge for the main, the cheese plates (pro tip: the hunk in the middle of the platter is butter, not cheese...learned that the hard way) to the tarte de pomme - all great. Would recommend everything on the menu. Wine selection was long -... More

There is just so much choice in St Germaine it can be hard to choose where to go but this was one of my favourite meals in Paris. Yes the tables are close together, and the menu is just in French, (not unusual at all in my experience) so you have to make an effort or have your google translate... More

My husband and I walked by the restaurant at lunch time, and he remembered a colleague had recommended it as one of the best in Paris. Tables were available outside, so we didn't even have to wait. The menu was only in French (after visiting many restaurants in Paris during two trips within 14 months, this was our first experience... More

I have walked by the lines waiting to eat at this restaurant for several years. The other night after the movies, the line was short, and we tried to flag someone down to see if they had vegetarian options. As we could get no one's attention, we waited in line until it was our turn. I asked the server politely... More

A set menu with many unique courses. Tables are close together- yet it was fun to talk with our dining neighbors during the meal. Excellent!

My partner and I stumbled across this restaurant walking back to our apartment one afternoon. It was 3pm and still people waiting in line so we figured it must be good! 15mins later and we had a seat out the front. The menu was in French which posed some difficulty with ordering but that is half the fun of being... More

My husband and I were 4th in line on a Sunday when the restaurant opened at 12:00 and were able to be seated right away - there was a line of people waiting to get in the rest of the day. On the weekends the menu is a la carte, but in the evenings during the week there is a... More

Waited in line for about 1 hr since me and my friend insisted on an outside table which proved to be a very good choice. The food was absolutely excellent, and found a nice bottle of 1995 Bordeaux for Euro 75. Service was OK, not great, but the atmosphere and location very good.

Faced a queue to get in there but once seated we had a great bistro meal. We had a slow cooked pork which was tender and incredibly tasty but it is all really well made, and we had a perfect meal.
