“Better than expected!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

We had just tried to find some of the more highly rated restaurants on Rue Colbert... but they were all closed! Don't know why, it was a Tuesday, not particularly early (about 7.30) and it was a complete ghost town up there.

So as we headed back to the hotel we spotted Fuxia, and the friendly waiter gave us an English menu. It's all Italian food, and I was very skeptical because I have not eaten a good Italian dish in Europe outside of Italy. But both my partner and I were pleasantly surprised how authentic and tasty the pastas were! They were very large portions, so we were both full afterward, and the bill was quite cheap too.

“Average food, average service, great outdoor seating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

One of maybe half a dozen places to eat on Place Jean Jaures, Fuxia is friendly enough with average food and average service. Everything was competant but nothing was excellent or outstanding. Forgettable really. We ordered a salmon and rocket risotto which was fine (if a little gloopy) and my colleaghue ordered a Pappardelle with Spinach which was inoffensive. The best part of this experience was ordering a few beers before, during and after and watching the world go by.
