“What a relief!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Having read the other reviews, I nearly didn't revisit our old faithful on this trip but thank goodness I did. Don't these moaners know the difference between straightforward, good, fresh ingredients being simply and freshly cooked and pretentious fuss. No 'boil in the bag' here. The staff know their food and do the job they are trained for which is not gushing over customers but seeing that your orders are taken, explaining anything you don't understand and dealing with any changes with polite correctness, no questions asked. Our dish of the day was well priced and excellent and the shared 'Assiette le Pied' starter, fabulous. We went back several times.

“After Half-a-Decade of Anticipation ... Disapointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

My wife and I had eaten in this restaurant several times and had thoroughly enjoyed the food, the setting, the service and the ambience, but that was five years ago. We'd been looking forward to patronising the establishment again after all that time but were rather disappointed when we did. The food wasn't particularly good and was overpriced, the service was slow, and the waiter, although not unfriendly, gave the impression of having something far better to do with his life than serve mere tourists.

We won't be going again, and have transferred allegiance to one of the other restaurants in the Place des Neuf Jets: La Fontaine, which I'll be reviewing shortly.

“Overrated and over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The food is reasonably good and the setting in the delightful square couldn't be better, but the churlish owners and boorish service have ensured I'll never go there again. Just downright rude and condescending.

“paid for location, not great food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Salmon wasn't properly cooked so we sent it back. Bit of anti English commentary about how we all like our food 'bien cuit' from the staff. Waiter got our order wrong as well. Would not go back. Place des 9 Jets is centrally located but that's about it.

“Not so hot”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Of unknown reason this restaurant is patronized by a lot of foreign residents. Apart from the location on the lovely Place des Neufs Jets the service is usually slow, on the point of rude(it helps not speaking French , not because the staff speaks any other language than French ) The food is expensive, badly cooked and usually tasteless . There is no point in sending back anything not correctly cooked. If this restaurant would be located in Paris one would rate it as French arrogance of the worst kind, coming from a exaggerated opinion about the French as compared to the rest of the world. I'd recommend The Quatro Cento just near by, at least the food is simple and the service correct.
