Dinner on a Monday night. Looked the busiest one in the neighborhood and decent selection on the menu, plus high ranking on TripAdvisor. However we were utterly disappointed at (1) the slow service, (2) the diluted cocktails, and (3) the worst fish & chips ever...More

First night in Paris, shy with poor French skills, our waiter jumped right in and explained everything in English complete with humor. Dozen red wines by the glass. Wine served quickly, food right on the heels. Entrecote was tough but tasty. Blue cheese sauce was...More

Great location but all the rest is average. Food is average, service is average... Paris style cafe for drinks or food.

It's difficult to find a very nice café in Paris. This one is great, a bit crowded but the food is fresh, homemade and not that expensive for the paris standarts.

Nice local cafe in the 5th arrondissment. Great hot cafe creme, delicate croissants, sweet fresh bread and raspberry jam I dream about. I am quite confident this cafe has contributed at least 5lbs to my vacation gain...but...I will go home with delicious memories.
