“A fun experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012 via mobile

We thought we would try this place as it was very close to where we were staying, and we wanted to try something different. We wanted to eat early as we have children, and we arrived at 6:50pm to an empty restaurant, with a funny smell, possibly burnt cheese.

We ordered 2 children's meals, one raclette one brassard, 2 specials, one raclette one brassard, and one mixed. The tables have a small grill in the centre of the table where you can grill your melt the cheese in a small pan, then mix it with ham, prosciutto, etc. The meals were also served with a baked potato. Our children thought it was good fun and the fussy one raved about how the meat was so yummy. The meals were very filling.

By 8pm the restaurant was nearly full. We had 3 chocolate mousses and 1 creme brûlée which were quite good.

The service was quite good, after being a bit slow to start, but maybe we were there before it opened.

“Good meal but bad dessert”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

It all started quite well but we left the restaurant very disappointed by the attitude of the waitress who was very nice at the beginning and suddenly became quite angry for no apparent reason. At the end of our meal, my friend and I decided to order a chocolate and pear ice-cream. The waitress made a mistake and served us some lemon instead of the pear. We politely asked her some pear ice-cream according to what we had ordered and she suddenly became angry and rude declaring that she would only change one of the ice-creams. Fortunately she didn't charge us for the second icecream. But the damage was done anyway and we left the restaurant very disappointed and in a low spirit. It really ruined our evening.

“Very good value for money!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

We wanted to try the "fondue", and we trusted the advice of a website about this restaurant. We found very good dish and confirm the advice of that website! Affordable price (20-25Euro) and very good quality and friendly staff. The "fundue" has the right ratio of cheese and is not diluted as in many other restaurants!!! We left the restaurant completely satiated and satisfied. Recommended!

“Fun place - good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

Very enjoyable. Location is short walk from M4 Simplon.
The afternoon fixed price menu is 10.90E and includes dessert.
It's all you'll need. Service was friendly and helpful and after 1pm
was wide open for choice of seating. Neighborhood is working-class
and not may tourists around.

“Nice, good-value fun lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011

You can get a lunch discount of 30% booking this on laforchette.com (use thefork.com for a semi-English version) and it's a very inexpensive, fun lunch for this price. After discount, it's about 10 euros per person. You have a little stove on your table and are given a small pan to melt your cheese over meats, potatoes. etc. Not exactly as I remember rachlette in the Alps, but tasty and fun. Good alternative to a "typical" French meal, and you can save your Euros for dinner. Three locations in Paris. Pick the one that's most convenient for you. Recommended.
