I do, but I guess I prefer them cooked rather than just plain. The service was fine and the Creme Brulee was good as it always is in France but wouldn't be on my list of places to go back to.

Réservation n'est pas obligatoire. J'y suis allée comme walk-in, c'était jeudi soir vers 18h et il y avait beaucoup de places, même en terrasse.
