We went there because close to the hotel and it was too late and we were too tired. The area has a lot of restaurants and bars. Many of the restaurants, including this one, are chains. The food is OK, but nothing extraordinary. Very standardized (normal for a chain you would say). The (fast) speed of serving did not convince... More

Everytime we go there, we go for the all you can eat beef carpaccio: "Carpaccio de boeuf a volonte" with French fries. We are never disappointed. Chaque fois que nous y allons, nous prenons le carpaccio a volonte et nous ne sommes jamais decus!!!

Despite some critiques, we chose to eat one evening in August. To our surprise, the food was quite good, and the pasta was not bad at all; you need only ask for al dente. The Milanese veal was very good: tasty, tender. And the wine choice - a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo - was superb, and reasonable. And, as noted, the service... More

Unbelievable panacotta! A real must to have if you eat at this restaurant. Great wait staff, very busy. The carpaccio is fantastic as well and comes in several varieties (ie: salmon, beef, etc) I think there was even an all you can eat carpaccio menu!

We chose this place because it was close to the hotel. Food was mediocre for a French restaurant. Service was good though. Italian theme.

It really helps to speak & understand a little French, both with the choice on the menu and conversation with the waiter. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The service was good. The food was also good but we found nothing special. Beware this restaurant gets very busy around 9p.m, so it's advisable to book or be prepared to... More

The Hippopotamus steak franchise in the restaurant makes for a great steak restaurant, the service is good and terrace nice to eat on. Try to speak a little French and it will be appreciated.
