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

I ate here over 15 years ago and it obviously made an impression on me as when I came back to Paris last weekend I suggested it to a friend of mine who thought it sounded like fun. The concept is very simple; fresh food, lots of it, unlimited red wine and entertainment. This all adds up to a fun... More

My expectations were low when I agreed to go to this restaurant. I thought it would be low quality food in a corny atmosphere. I could not have been more wrong. The atmosphere was warm and friendly (I'd recommend arriving after 8, it's a bit quiet early on), the all-you-can-drink wine was surprisingly good, and the food was very tasty.... More

The restaurant was a bit difficult to find, but once we did, we found the atmosphere to be entertaining. There was plenty of food and wine served, and our entire party, even the children, enjoyed the meal. Some of the service was family style, and some was plated. Everyone enjoyed the meal, even the children.

I had no idea what to expect when we arrived. The vegetable basket was stunning and raw and delicious. We were then told to go fill up our tanker with wine from a barrel! Bottomless. Then go and fix a shared plate of cured meats and nibbles. THEN came the meat and bread. Then in the candlelit cave pops out... More

My wife is a true food critic. We lived in New York for many years. Anyone that does not enjoy this restaurant needs to take life less seriously and enjoy pure fun. They have delectable vegetable baskets. Never seen anything like this before. Lots of wine, serve yourself. And it is very good. I am a connoisseur of wine, and... More

I visited the restaurant just yesterday with my family (wife + two year old daughter) I do like the concept of authentic place + all you can eat and drink. Main course of the menu was not the best one comparing to selection of sausages and appetizers you can enjoy as much as you like. We haven't use opportunity to... More

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
