Description: When you step into this timeless venue, you will discover a festive restaurant straight out of a storybook and the imaginary world of Asterix. The success of the now well-known concept is based on a simple, but effective idea: long rows of tables, mixed salad, grills and wine served from the barrel, all in gigantic quantities. Also worth mentioning is the outstanding welcome which contributes to the friendly atmosphere.24/12 menu: Unlimited salads and dry sausages - Meat grilled over a wood fire - Mature cheese platter - Seasonal Fruit Basket - Christmas log - glass of champagne - Red Bordeaux wine at the barrel ad libitumNew year's eve: Potion - Unlimited salads and dry sausages - Rossini Tournedos - Apple sherbet calvados - Mature cheese - Seasonal Fruit Basket - Dessert - glass of champagne - coffee - Red Bordeaux wine at the barrel ad libitum

This restaurant is pure fun. The atmosphere is simply for entertainment purposes. It is cave-like without any windows. Sure the food is not exceptional by any means, but it's really more of a novelty restaurant (like Rainforest Cafe). I really think children would have a great time here. I found it to be reasonably priced. They have unlimited cheese and... More

If you are in a group and want a joyous songfest without having excellent food to eat this is it! Sorta Denny's in Paris. I like the management and staff of this place but it is somewhat offensive to think of Paris and food from this place in the same sentence. It you normally eat at Denny's then you'll love... More

Have been at this restaurant three times. First time - five years ago - the food was excellent, three year's ago it was ok, and now it was a disaster! The salad was old (brown!), the meat was pre-grilled and so cold that we had to send it back and the service is under average. And the entertainment get worse... More

We came in without a reservation and the staff were happy to accommodate us. Salad presentation in a big basket was fun, but then you realize that it's passed to the next table - coming from Upstate NY, I immediately wondered about germs. Meat dish next - mine was good (lamp chops) my friend with the steak found it fatty... More

The place looks small, but is big in the back. I made a reservation in the restaurant website, which was not captured in time to reserve me a table (although made at 2pm for an 8:30pm dinner). However, the receptionist made me comfortable and quickly found a solution. A table in front of the grill, which roasted me along the... More

All you can eat and drink: wine, veggies, breads, cheese, sausages. All quite ok but not special. Low quality for meat and dessert.

Dinner was wonderful at Nos ancetres les Gaulois. The salad presentation was nice, with the veggies in a basket for you to make your salad. The produce was fresh and tasty. It would be easy to fill up on the flavorful various salads, pates and sausages. The main meat was good, not as exceptional as the rest of the food... More

We were there on 2nd of May this year. It was a noisy but lusty place to spend one evening. Good company singing all the time and tasty food. Funny old hippy sang songs from all over the world and all our group of 16 people enjoy it

The "generous selection of unlimited salads and dry sausages" are of very poor quality as the rest of the food served. 40 euros for that is a shame. Actually I'm living in Paris and for this price I suggest you to try something good, in this same street and district it's full of better restaurant than this one.
