A friend recommended this restaurant in Saint Germain and I'm so glad I went! We arrived a few minutes before 7 and after some slight confusion as to why the door could not open (cos it was locked), we were told that they open at 7. Alrighty then. So we loitered around the area for 10 minutes before making our way back.
My french vocabulary was limited to "bon jour" and my dining companion was a tad better, so we were pleasantly surprised and very appreciative of our very friendly (and pretty, I might add) waitress who took the trouble to explain every single entree and main course in the menu, which was only in french. After ordering a very nice bottle of beujelais, we both decided to have the foie gras terrine starter and rabbit thigh main course. The starter was spot on and simply a party in the mouth with the explosion of flavours from the foie gras terrine, citrus compote and what I believe to be a water cress salad drizzled with aged balsamic. Simply fantastic and a great start to the meal.
The rabbit was ok, IMHO and strangely, it did really taste like chicken, laden with a bernaise sauce. :P
I chose the vanilla panacotta dessert, which I had been eyeing ever since I saw the menu and didn't go wrong there either. Truly a wonderful end to a great meal. Wasn't cheap, but wasn't expensive either at EUR35 for the 3-course meal. I would definitely return if I have more time in Paris. Most of all, the excellent meal was accompanied by a very attentive and helpful waitress. So, thank you Margaux, for helping us have an outstanding dinner experience in Paris.
Don't forget to make a booking. The place was packed when we were leaving!
