“Good, cozy, charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I thought their food was pretty good, not amazing. Their pasta was really bad, but apparently the French don't know how to do pasta right (we learned this throughout the whole country, not just here). The place was really charming and the owners (presumably) were super nice and helpful even though our French isn't great.

“Reasonable dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Good food and friendly service. We arrived on the train from London - and wanted an early 6:00 PM dinner - one of the few restaurants serving early. It may be a bit expensive. Big restaurant with many outside tables. We were there on Saturday. Major mall construction across the street may be a distraction during the week.

“Classic Paris Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I have eaten here a number of times over the years. Excellent seafood and fish in a great position near Les Halles. I have a girlfriend who works across the street and this is her place for lunches and she is a local so it must be pretty good as she has excellent taste. Friendly waiters and an English menu.

“Classic food in Paris with excellent service.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

.......and at a reasonable price.
My wife and I really enjoyed our last evening in Paris with a tremendous meal here. The avocado, shrimp and smoked salmon was light and just right to start the evening. My wife then had the foie gras with mushroom ravioli which was beautifully prepared and really buttery. My duck breast arrived, but was overcooked and little tough and I sent it back. No problem....it was replaced within 10 minutes with a pink and luscious sliced breast with a raspberry sauce and a roasted pear. Wow it was tender and top shelf stuff.
Got to love a Paris restaurant that is attentive, prepared to correct mistakes, and fulfill our expectations on both of these exacting dishes.
