“Great little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Imaginatively prepared food that tastes as good as it looks. I started with a crab, avocado mousse sitting on refreshing tomato based coulis. The contrasting tastes and textures were sublime. The wine list is short but well chosen. There should be something to match everyone's taste. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.

“Cozy, great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

My wife and I toggled between Zinc Caius and Caius thoughout our stay in Paris last September 2011. If I remember the guy that runs the place correctly, his name is Mr. Blanc. Same feeling as the other person, we felt like locals. Blanc speaks english and tries very hard to accomodate your questions. We had giant escargo here. The fish tastes delicious. Wine is superb.
