We were blessed to have this charming cafe across the road from our apartment and dined there often. The exterior was postcard perfect as was the interior. Food was contemporary not classic French but well prepared from fresh ingredients and thoroughly delicious; try their unique fries, heavenly! It's a very popular venue and always well patronised but service was always... More

and we found good quality food and friendly staff. (Also good English) It was early in the evening and all 6 meals were better than average. Burgers are really good and the double was amazing.

If you want to pay 9 euro for red wine with OBVIOUSLY water inside, that's the place for you. Otherwise avoid. Plus we ordered two different wines but they tasted exactly the same: heavily diluted.

A small cosy place very popular with locals. Menu is interesting and my two meals there were both thoroughly enjoyable. The staff were friendly and the service good. Portions were of a good size and the cheese board excellent value. Atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

Near our hotel so we went there pretty much every day for over a week. The service was excellent. They made us feel at home and served us with genuine friendliness. Whether we were there just for drinks or a meal the service was always the same - we were never rushed and they were very attentive. The food was... More

As this place was just next to my hotel, I've been there about 4 times during my stay. Every time i tried something different but all was really delicious. They have English menu and waiters speak English by the way. Some of the design ideas (like the tables with chess or chairs with quotes) I liked as well.

Expensive, carelessly noisy, disturbed every ten minutes by a waiter asking us to move, chocolate composed of milk at the top and solid powder at the bottom, croissants were ok. Nice quotes on the chair.

Just arrived in Paris taxi to hotel took longer than expected due to 2 English ladies who didn't have clear directions to where they wanted to go. That's another story but suffice to say when we checked in we just wanted to eat somewhere handy and receptionist recommended this. I had duck and his nibs had lasagne We both enjoyed... More
