Great value at lunchtime. We also had the gambas (prawns) with a barley risotto. Beautiful quality prawns but found the sauce too runny on the risotto, so that, in the end, it was a bit like eating rice pudding. Nonetheless, very tasty. My husband had...More

We were in this small and very cosy restaurant with a friend who has been living in Paris for many decades. We enjoyed it. It is very small indeed (only 7 tables), so reservations are a must. It is quite obvious that the couple running...More
