Nice place but...

The view from the restaurant, when you sit outside is great. It was our first restaurant in Paris, rhe food was good, but kind of expensive, especially the Kir. Normaly you can get it much cheaper.

We walked in because it was right outside the Metro station and a walking tour had given us a big appetite. The service was very slow and the place looked understaffed. The food (I had lamb and my husband duck) was very good and the ambiance was nice and relaxed. The food was a bit on the pricier side. Definitely... More

My wife and I came here on a recommendation from a friend, who claimed it had the best duck in Paris. I wouldn't go that far, but the duck was good, and I would recommend it. The staff spoke great English and was attentive.

We ate here purely by chance walking back to the Place de la Republique and chose it because it looked attractive. Overall it was pretty good and the food was extremely pleasant (an excellent mushroom risotto) and at a reasonable price for where it is. However by the time we finished it was about half full and there only appeared... More

I went there twice during the same week. Had the antipasti salad both times, and once a great beef tartare and the second time a double beef burger. Service is great and with a great smile. There is a nice covered terrace, and a lounge type area.

Ordered a steak. Came out wrong. Sent it back. Got a second steak. Was possibly the worst steak I have ever tried to eat. Was not cooked right. Was so fatty that I am surprised it could be sold as steak. Adding insult to injury was that they did not remove the uneaten steal from the bill. In my opinion... More

Nice little restaurant with authentic French atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was fresh and delicious. I had soup of the day (courgette) and prawn salad and my partner had salad entree and sea bass main. We accidentally ordered a glass of red wine each (thinking it was white) and were surprised when it came chilled but were so delighted... More

Walking by the place looks OK, atmosphere is nice. The food came straight from under a lamp, where it had been standing a while. The personnel was already not too happy about going to work that day, but when we wanted to return the food they really became agitated. Even wanted to make us pay for both the cold meal... More

We had dinner at this restaurant one night (and stopped by again the next day for drinks) and it was of a good standard for a decent price. It was of a good size, nice style, had a decent menu and a few people in it, so we stopped in as we walked past looking for a place to eat.... More

The ONLY motivator for choosing this restaurant was that it was the first thing we saw getting off the L'Open Tour Bus at Place de la Republique. We were so glad to settle here! The food was fabulous, the atmosphere was delightful, and we didn't feel rushed or berated for being ridiculously outside normal lunch hours. There was a change... More
