Our group of over 20 people had dinner here. The food was well done, but nothing special. Red wine was ok .

We were too tired to look for anywhere else, but it was okay. Quick service, tasty steak. Should have looked closer at the menu as the lady at the next table had something far more interesting for her lunch.

The French like good food. They claim to have the best kitchen in the world. So how come so many people eat at this place? It does not make sense. The staff was ok-ish, but the food was mediocre at best. French fries (what's in a name...) arrived dead cold, the meat was so so. Don't spend your money here.... More

Our 9year old daughter loved this restaurant, we had great meals both times. Her favourite was the Brochette de Bonbons dessert (skewer of marshmallows with hippo iced on them). Service warm and friendly, very enjoyable.

I had just completed a bike ride from London to Paris and after a very average plate of pasta at my hotel I thought I would give this place a try as a steak was just what the doctor ordered. On the positive side, there is plenty of choice, different cuts and different weights. On the negative side, even the... More

Great for a pre-dinner drink and snack but not for dinner. Cocktails and beer reasonably priced especially during happy hour.

The food wasn't too bad, service is slow and always rushy. Decide on what you need to eat and to drink within 10 mins. Otherwise they would forget about you and keep going. Do not hesitant to send back the meal if you have time and the meal isn't what you requested. Beef, chicken and hamburger are good but make... More

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
