Unfortunately didn't get to try the food. Customer service is terrible here and we left after an average glass of overpriced Cote du Rhone. The manager is rude, did not attend us after we asked to be moved because of the cold.

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence confirmed! We popped over after a visit to the Louve. Warm welcome, good music, speedy kitchen all made for a delicious lunch for the two of us. If you go, enjoy.

These brasserie no offer notting special. The food is ok, the drinks is ok. Pros: localization, near the Louvre. Contra: we are a family, with seven people. It semeed like we were a problem, mainly the kids.More

It's an easy walk from the metro stop in front of Comedie Francaise, Rue de Richelieu, very close to the Louvre.

Absolutely! This is a small, very casual family run place that will welcome you with open arms. Try the ratatouille and ask for the special dish of the day. Tell Lilly her fans from NYC say bonjour. Enjoy.
