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

We were so disappointed when we discovered our favourite restaurant (next door) had stopped serving this rustic experience... it was intended to be one of the highlights of our honeymoon. Fortunately we went to investigate while visiting Notre-dame & discovered this gem right next door. Rustic, gloomy lighting, fill your jug with wine as often as you like & eat... More

This restaurant is not what you would expect from the exterior view. You feel like sitting in an old castle in side. You pay 40€ for 4-5 courses with food and as much red wine as you like to drink and refill.

If you don't really care about food that much, this place is for you....it's a fun place for large parties-birthdays, etc. It's an interesting concept, but besides the fresh vegetables basket at the beginning of the meal, the rest is not that good. The appetizers are fatty susages, salami and some disgusting salads...the entrees are average, I had grilled chicken... More

Recommended by my father, a long-time fan, we knew what to expect before we went. Not the best food you'll ever find in Paris but really good food and plenty of it. You get a huge crudite basket and a selection of charcuterie from the buffet. Then a choice of roasted meats with vegetables for main course and then a... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a resident of Paris. It is a great escape from the touristy spots. The restaurant has incredible ambiance, which is helped by the strolling musicians. The rustic tables make for a cozy and relaxing environment. Each table is setup with a bushel of fresh veges to share with your table mates. As patrons... More

The Inside of an old auberge from the time of Gaulle, a lot of ambiance as people go there to have a good laugh and fun (thanks to red Bordeaux wine at discretion!), overall a place for an evening not to take oneself too seriously and let it go!

We ate here our first night in Paris based on a recommendation from a local. We were delighted to learn they could squeeze us in without reservations. Turned out to be one of our best meals. The shared dining table encourages conversation with other travelers and we ended up sharing a fun evening with a father & daughter from Argentina.... More

It's not suitable for romantic dinners because it's loud, but once you get there they put a basket of fresh vegetables that seem to have just got there from the farm. You can drink as much wine as you want as eat as much "charcuterie" as you are able to. A bard will sing traditional French music and you will... More
