We were welcomed by very friendly and enthusiastic hosts as one of them explained the menu. The food was flavourful and every bite was worth it. Such a great gem around the neighbourhood. We will definitely be going back :)

Have been coming here for few years now and this place is just unbeatable. They serve one of the best cheese burgers in the world & point à la ligne. The steak tartare is out of this world a must try... The success story behind...il Etait Un Square are the staff and the owners. Love love love will be back soon.More

We came here last minute, we were pleasantly surprised. We knew the food would be good because we'd seen the reviews, but we didn't know it would be this amazing! We had the best burger & chips we have ever tasted and would reccommend this...to anyone visiting Paris! The service was great too.More

I don't have much to say about this restaurant that hasn't been said here before. Everybody on this website writes how amazing it is, and you can indeed find really excellent burgers here, with delicate flavours that you usually do not find in a burger....I took the chocolate mousse for dessert, which was fine. Very quick and friendly, attentive service. Not sure this is the best restaurant in Paris, despite its ranking, but this is certainly one of the best for this range of prices, and unquestionably the best burger I've ever eaten in Paris. Therefore I highly recommend it.More

Me and my partner found this restaurant after search on tripadvisor. It met our expectations and more!! We reserved a table and were greeted by such lovely and attentive members of staff. The food came out fast after being seated. This was perhaps the best...burger we have both eaten, everything was cooked to perfection and the homemade mayonnaise was delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone who was visiting Paris!!More

We found this restaurant in an effort to get to know the Buttes aux Cailles neighbourhood better on our short weekend trip away post lockdown. And it was a great find! The restaurant is known for unique burgers and tartars. The food is delicious, the...pitchers of wine are very well chosen, and the server really enjoys his job. The tiramisu was amazing!More

Burger was absolutely delicious, one of the best I’ve had, however it felt very rushed, we arrived just as they opened and asked for a table for 2, we were asked had we booked, we said we hadn’t, the waiter then proceeded to look round...the empty room full of empty tables to try and find us one, he said it should be ok. They also have a great offer on the website and in the window, burger, fries, drink and desert for €20, this however is take out only. As previously mentioned can not fault the burger and it is worthy of 5stars but not the overall experience.More

A really great burger, not too fatty either. The service was very attentive. A bit far maybe but definitely worth it. I’ll be back.
