First of all, this place is not primarily for eating, but for drinking and being seen, especially on weekends. Perched on the edge of Oberkampf in the 11the arrondissement, it's a favorite haunt of the young and the chronically hip. But I was hungry, so I ordered the formule at a reasonable 20 euros, which included entrée + plat. The entrée, described as calamars, was disappointing: I guess there was some squid buried in all that deepfry, but it was hard to taste, and the two tartar sauces were McDonald quality. The entrecôte, when it finally came (it was Friday night, and the young staff were outnumbered and flustered), was delicious: slightly burned on the outside, almost raw within, just like I like it. The surprise came with the bill: not 20 euros, but 27.50. When I requested the menu, I noticed that there was indeed an asterisk next to entrecote, and, in tiny print at the bottom of the page, the indication that there would be a 7.50 euro surcharge. Now the practice of adding surcharges to formules is common, but they're usually on the order of 3-5 euros. This was too much, and seemed intended to deliberately trick people (it certainly worked in my case). In short, with so many excellent restaurants in this neighborhood (L'Autre Cafe comes to mind), grab a beer here if you must, but eat elsewhere.
