“Good sea food bistrot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Specialising in fish and seafood, our dinner here was good value for Paris. Interesting food well served by helpful staff. A nice starter of roast peppers stuufed with mashed potato and smoked fish, was followed by lotte (monkfish) and (for my wife) dorade (sea bream). Nice without being exceptional. An excellent bottle of rose at 27 euros. A mix of tourists and locals, together with good staff, made this a a good choice.

“Decent seafood in a tourist neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Tired and hungry, I checked out the restaurants in the Montparnasse area. This one had an "ardoise", a chalkboard instead of a regular menu, which is often a good sign.
I am not saying this is a hidden gem, great food at a great price in a great setting - but it is a good restaurant given the area. It's a tad tacky inside, but service is swift and friendly, the fish is fresh and tasty, the wine options are reasonable, and the prices are adequate.
And I noticed something that I don't often see in Paris restaurants - the staff members were actually nice and comfortable with each other, and friendly to the tourists that don't speak a word of french.

“Ultimate fish meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Somehow slightly kitchy but nice premises. Staff being a little bit moody but very attentive and observant. THEN - serving fish being fresh as coming directly from the sea, perfectly cooked
and offering taste experience that only a chef in top level restaurant can give you.
This is a restaurant to recommend - go there and enjoy!

“Good seafood, decently prized”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

We went there on a few personal recommendations. If you are looking for good seafood, this is the place.

The entire menu was written on a chalk board in French, so it could be intimidating. But the waitors are very friendly and won't hesitate to translate line by line... After you order a bottle of wine.

The seafood here wasn't fansy or exotic but it's solidly good. The decor though looks like it's from the 30's, and so did a lot of the patrons.

“When reality meets recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Studying the reviews during the journey to Paris on Eurostar and taking advice from the hotel receptionist doesn't always work but the risotto with the freshest scallops in a light sauce full of flavour and my wife's salmon with a garlic touch certainly confirmed the decision to eat there and to try the desserts. The rum baba brought out an extremely satisfied smile from my wife whilst I found the sorbets to be rich in flavour. The menu is chalked up on blackboards in French but we found the waiters extremely helpful when making our choices. Price for two courses and a glass of wine each 80 euros Would I recommend - absolutely.
