Did many restaurants in Paris, but we found that this one to be a bit on the expensive side. The food was not too bad, but it was priced a bit too high. Yes things are expensive, but we found restaurant must nicer and with excellent food.

I have only had the opportunity to sample the "café" side of things here, not always that easy since the place is often crowded, and rightfully so. But if you are tired of racking your brains to order some complicated coffee-derived drink you can be certain that "un expresso" or simply "un café s'il vous plaît" will bring you something... More

We dined there on 8th June. Ambience typically 'old Parisienne' but definitely poor value for money. Would not return.

We booked this at the last minute as most of the restaurants we wanted to go to were full. We were very disappointed. The surroundings are Grand but are shabby.
