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.

A small Traditional French restaurant on a narrow street ... it was recommended to us by friends that live in the city. The menu in French and the server speaking no English but we were there for the experience - and it was recommended. The meal was wonderful and a very neat experience. We did notice that all the English-speaking... More

Traditional French food of outstanding quality. The Bœuf Bourguignon was stunning. Another classic French dish, Blanquete de Veau (from the specials menu) was melt-in-the-mouth tender, velvety/creamy, and surprisingly wasn't heavy. Service was polite and prompt, by a truly professional Maître d'Hôtel. Ordered the house wine which was very good, and cheap. If you are trying to locate it on a... More

We almost walked out as the Maitre was in a word "Gruff." Fortunately we didn't. Once we got to know each other, the evening was fun. The specially is slow cooked meat, e.g veal shanks. When combined with the house wines (a bit rough but great value), the overall experience is a good meal at a reasonable price in a... More

Small and quaint, with friendly staff, and superbly cooked food. Same price as other tourist-catch and otherwise less-worthy restaurants.

Stumbled into this wonder little restaurant and am still drooling over the 7 hour lamb a year later.

This restaurant sits in between much larger restaurants in a section of Paris where as a Parisian friend said, "only good restaurants stay in business." I had a lamb stew, cooked for 7 hours, that had a wonderful hint of cinnamon. The starter warm chèvre on toast salad was tasty and simple. The wine list is small, good and modestly... More
