Went to this place for lunch, the restaurant is small but has a good selection of meatballs (beef, lamb, chicken, pork, vegetarian and fish). I tried lamb and vegetarian, the lamb meatballs were too undercooked for my liking however the vegetarian meatballs were delicious. All...More

Great service, friendly waiters, amazing and filling meal, and free wifi. I honestly couldn't ask for a better experience from such a small, random place. If you're ever nearby, definitely give it a try!

Just a wonderful, simple, and delicious restaurant. Different meatballs every time you visit and he drops them on a base you choose - salad or risotto, etc. Service is good and friendly and it's a great way to experience French cuisine in a different way.

The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
