This bistro was just a few blocks from our hotel. It was a relaxed and friendly environment. We walked in with no reservation and were quickly and efficiently seated. Our waiter, recognising that we were a Scot and an American, made sure that we were...More

On our last night in Paris we had dinner here. The waiter spoke fluent English and the service was good. Our hotel recommended this place as it was only 3 blocks away. The veal with risotto was excellent.

We were tired and exhausted to say nothing about the fact that we were starving. We just walked into this restaurant because we were standing in front of it. The service and food were wonderful. It was just what we needed to recharge and continue...More

This place was unexpectedly nice! As we entered the location, we were greeted by the barman and he took us to the table. We asked him if we could use a table by the window but he said that was a 4 people table. Five...More
