Description: When you step into this timeless venue, you will discover a festive restaurant straight out of a storybook and the imaginary world of Asterix. The success of the now well-known concept is based on a simple, but effective idea: long rows of tables, mixed salad, grills and wine served from the barrel, all in gigantic quantities. Also worth mentioning is the outstanding welcome which contributes to the friendly atmosphere.24/12 menu: Unlimited salads and dry sausages - Meat grilled over a wood fire - Mature cheese platter - Seasonal Fruit Basket - Christmas log - glass of champagne - Red Bordeaux wine at the barrel ad libitumNew year's eve: Potion - Unlimited salads and dry sausages - Rossini Tournedos - Apple sherbet calvados - Mature cheese - Seasonal Fruit Basket - Dessert - glass of champagne - coffee - Red Bordeaux wine at the barrel ad libitum

“A nice place if you are in a festive mood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Do not go there if you're looking for fine dining or a romantic meal.
But if you're in a festive mood, this is the place for you ! Located on the Ile St Louis, this "tavern" like restaurant welcomes a lot of people, so reservations are recommended.
The staf is very friendly and will put you at ease very quickly.
The food is simple but good : huge veggie basket as a starter, then the buffet : pâtés, saucisson, various salads ... you will then have the main course : brochette de canard,boeuf or agneau, baked potato and many more. Just when you think you can't eat anymore, here comes the delicious cheese platter, the fruit basket and the desert. All this with a great ambiance created by a very friendly guitar playing singer, so don't be afraid to sing along if you want. A good place for a good time.

“very good dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It is a very particular restaurant within the Ile St.-Louis with very nice ambiance.
It is like being in a Middle Age Inn.
They serve typical food with a unique set-up.
Prices are reasonable.
Highly recommended !!

“The gauls must have eaten themselves to death”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Don't go here if you're on a diet, nor a shoestring. The maximum seating is currently 300, but depending on the day less seats are offered. The food is excellent, staff friendly and at the end of the evening you're physically stuffed for the round sum of 40€ per person.

“Still thinking about it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This my third time here, and I still enjoy as much as the first. This restaurant is unique, the point is to recreate the way the original french ( asterix) ate like. It's nothing like you've ever seen. First you get a basket of veggies, and you make your own salad. The first reaction is to get a little scared, but as you start drinking the unlimited wine and the entire atmosphere starts engulfing you, you start getting falling in love. You then serve yourself an unlimited amount of cold cuts and salads, and here you really start feeling like a gaulois. They have live music and as the night progresses, the drunk patrons start joining into the french music. All in all this experience is DELIGHTFUL! It's perfect for an outing with friends or as a "unique" date.

“A taste of 17th Century Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Located on the Ile-de-St Louis, this restaurant offers a very unique(for Paris) menu: all you can eat vegetable basket so large it would be sufficient for three tables, a station with pate, cheeses, and sausage, followed by choice of grilled beef and chicken, and a delicious dessert.
All are accompanied by unlimited carafes of wine. A strolling guitar player who conducted a sing-a-long of American hit songs, simply made the evening complete. With it being open on Sunday evening, when many other Parisian restaurants are closed was a true plus. We left feeling like we experienced a meal a working class Parisian of the Middle Ages would have experienced.
