The five of us. Grandparents, son and daughter in law, and granddaughter. The meals were delicious. The service both very pleasant and attentive. Lowering it from five stars to four was the noise level when the restaurant was full. We arrived at 7pm when it opened, and from 7 to 7.45 it was five star level. The clientele were French,... More

Fantastic meal from start to finish. Crayfish salad amazing & plenty to eat. Venison with cranberry sauce was splendid, I asked for medium/well done & it was done to perfection. You can taste the quality of the produce used. Chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream was an excellent ending to a great meal.. All this AND amazingly priced!

This is an amazing little restaurant in a side street 5 minutes from the tower. It is anything but a tourist haunt. The lovely hostess makes you feel very welcome, the food is homely ( I mean that in the best way ) you can see and feel the care with which it is prepared. We had a three course... More

If you are near the Eiffel Tower please don't miss on this little piece of heaven! Set menus, amazing food! I would underline it and bold it if I could! We had foie gras, pasta, crispy salmon, and two desserts, one was with caramelised apples and the second one a French toast based. We thought that I might not be... More

It was New Years Eve. The woman who greeted us was just wonderful. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the tables are very close together. The amuse bouche was pretty but tasted like it was just out of the refrigerator and one of the three tasted fishy. The duck said with foie gras was delicious but had too much dressing.... More

This restaurant is 2 blocks from where we live in Paris and we walk by it all the time. Extremely unassuming from the outside. If is comfortable and warm but not fancy inside. The food, however, is fabulous. From the duck Salad to the Dorado and the Duck Confit. We were blown away. Clearly a family restaurant, moderate prices, great... More

As this is to celebrate our ruby wedding, we ordered a dinner here. We chose the wine included option and the opera menu. The choice of starters, mains and deserts was better than we hoped, and the champagne reception, and the wines with the meal showed that the French do keep the better wines for themselves. Although this is expensive,... More

If you are looking for a small intimate restaurant near the Eiffel Tower this is the place. We just returned from a quick London and Paris trip and upper most in my memory of the trip is the dinner my wife and I shared here. The food was lovely, and the service (by the owner) attentive and unobtrusive. Prix fix... More
