This brasserie is my favourite in the city, I came a numerous amount of time and was never disappointed.
Of course the restaurant is always busy, noisy and sometimes you can wait for a certain amount of time specially on sundays if you did not book but at the end always happy about the food.
My favourites in this restaurant are: as a starter the snails cooked with butter and parsley. Concerning the main course what I prefer the most is the sole which is not always on the menu but can ask for, or the veal liver which is delicious.
For desert you can try the classical "Gauffre Grand-Mère".
I have to admit that the service is not incredible and perfect but it's a brasserie not a gastro restaurant, I find it normal that the waiters do not spend 10 min on your table each time they come, they have to be really quick.
