Cueva del Diablo caught our eye because of the charming little street and neighborhood in which it was located and because of the Tripadvisor sticker in its window. Usually we stray away from well-known tourist haunts, but several other attempts to find a place to suit our palates had failed. It was lunch time and the place was packed, but we found two seats wedged between two other couples--just like many other of our experiences in Paris--part of the charm.
There were two three course menus for lunch, varying from 12 to 15 Euros each. The variety of choices was extensive, including several choices for first, second, and third courses. My husband selected a lamb dish and I chose the salmon. Both were ample and quite delicious. I had the onion soup for the first course and my husband had a fondue of some sort for his. We discovered that the fondue was one of the specialities of the house, so he seemed to hit the jackpot with his order. Everything on the prix fixe menus was also available a la carte.
Service was excellent, friendly, efficient and provided with a sense of humor. If we can find our way, we will return.
