Really the perfect restaurant to end the night after having a couple of beers in the 11th, the food is always good, fresh, the staff is fun and friendly, and I'd especially recommend the "salade des fabricants" if you're really hungry and want a VERY...complete meal, would absolutely recommend coming hereMore

Such amazing food and friendly service. We were only staying up the street and this was a great find. Super portions and such authentic French food. Even had Ile flottante which made my wife very happy! Even if we had been staying on the other...side of Paris we'd have returned. Even on a Monday it was busy so get in early. Try the snails,they were lovely.More

Delicious food, very friendly staff and good prices for Paris. I visited other restaurants with higher prices during my stay in Paris but this one was the best. Big portions, tasty food, good service. Perfect experience.

The guy in the cashier was really impolite. He was ironic and disrespectful. He assured me they were no reservations made ,in fact I talked with the lady over the phone who reassured me that my reservations was made. Awful service

I think its the worst food ive had till now and im 42 years old. Very low quality in a very very big quantity. No love at all in the food. Maybe its good for young students who don’t care. But wow, was amazed how...full it gets even though the quality was terrible. The salads are just huge pieces of uncut cheap lettuce with cheap tomatoes no sauce and cheap cheese. Waiter very sympathic but a pitty he works in such a restaurant. Would never recommend. SorryMore

I loooove this place and I are there more than one time. Very nice staff, friendly with clients. Typical bistrot menu with classic dish of French cuisine. High choice of salads and dessert. Big portions, good quality of food, and good prices. You can eat...there until midnight/1am (it depends on the day). I highly suggest this place! No credit cardsMore

Our first meal in Paris and local to our rental. We read about this place on tripadvisor and it didn't disappoint. It was a Monday evening but still nearly full when we arrived so we were lucky to get a table for two. It is...worth going just to marvel at the waiter (Julian, I think) serving so many tables, it was quite spectacular to see so much energy and added to the whole fun atmosphere. The food was great too. We were tired so didn't go crazy, shared a camembert starter which was delicious and then both had steak & chips, also good. You won't be disappointed if you go here. Take cash though, they don't take cards. Enjoy!More

Located in the 11th, we happened upon this restaurant on the way back to our Airbnb rental. The front of the restaurant has ceiling to floor glass windows and doors so you can enjoy the view outside from within. Once inside it had a cafeteria...style - minimal decor with simple wooden tables, industrial hanging lights, menus hanging on simply painted beige/white walls. Due to the time we arrived and also time of year, the restaurant was not yet busy so was seated quickly. Our server was friendly, spoke English and gave recommendations - not american style service but still efficient and quick. House foie gras was really good. My Duck confit was also really good. My companions ordered steak and a different type of duck but we all agreed my dish was the best. All dishes served were also a good portion size. It is important to note that they take cash only so be prepared.More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
