Charming and quaint looking restaurant. We order the foie gras, bone marrow, roasted duck breast l'orange, roasted lamb plus a bottle of Langu D'oc. The wine was excellent, if you like bold reds but the rest of the meal was mediocre. Everything sounds wonderful but the duck was not cooked well - raw in the middle and very tough -... More

I was so looking forward to going to this place as my friend recommended it highly and even Tripadvisor had good reviews. Had a very mediocre experience (even my friend agreed it was not so good as before). The service was poor (only one person it seemed for all the tables), the tables were a bit cramped, and it took...

This is one of those small gems that you always hope to find. Our server, Amina, was charming and adorable. We asked for her favorite selections and went with the beef bourguignon and the duck confit. Shared an appetizer of the escargots. Also shared a pot au vin (1/2 liter of suggested wine). The flavors were wonderful. The beef was... More

I think we've eaten here a half dozen times. I've never been disappointed. For us, a trip to Paris is not complete without a dinner here. Unpretentious, charming, good service, great prices and delicious food. We seem to always stay in the 6th and some years back wondered in for dinner. What a find, on a small side street lined...

A small bistro, with excellent "home made" cuisine and the best price around the neighborhood. So intimate, that waitresses do not exist and receipts are handwritten. Best value for money & quality. "Big family", because at the end we ended up chatting and laughing with the people sitting next to us. Nice relaxing atmosphere.

We loved this little french restaurant down one of the side streets off the main Blvd St Germain. The menu and service is in French but this is not an issue. Great service and we enjoyed our food. Three courses with a bottle of wine and coffee for Euro 83.

We really enjoyed eating here. Had wonderful very tender lamb and beef. The house wine was excellent. The service was professional and friendly and made dinner very enjoyable. We were able to get a table, on the earlier side, with no reservation and had a great meal! I'd certainly return again.

This small, quiant little restaraunt is down a smaller street, making it a littel tough to find, but well worth seeking out. The goat cheese was amazing, a carafe of the quite good house wine was less than $10 USD. The portions were large and the vibe was great. I will definiatly be back this Sept. when I am in... More

The food is consistently delicious and the staff (only three people!) is quite helpful. It only has 10 or so tables, so to be sure of getting a spot stop by early in the evening or late afternoon to request a reservation.
