“Good steakes. Fast service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We have been there twice during our stay in Paris. Good stakes, fast service, reasonable prices. Some waiters do not understand English at all. This gives fun ordering meal.

“Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Excellent food and service for lunch. However, when going back for dessert I was refused service because that was all I was having: dessert and coffee. There was one other person outside and five people inside (between the lunch and dinner hour) so I really wasn't taking up much room for the 30 minutes I planned to be there.

Service is good with an average quality and menu, four of us had diner with drinks and the two drinks per person cost more than the two course meals, its the same all over Paris

“Not much to say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Average run of the mill mass produced food. Pretended to be up market by asking us to taste the bottle of wine we ordered.
