Friendly English speaking staff. Booked table. All on time. Explained the menu. Very accommodating. Food was amazing. Full of flavour. We ordered jabón, smoked beetroot, crab and spaghetti, peppers and anchovies and purple broccoli. Would recommend.

Great experience, with really nice help of the two hosts. They spoke English very well and were very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and surprising!

Cute little restaurant up in the hills of Belleville. Great selection of natural wines and pleasant waitstaff. Though not quite sure it's deserving of the bib gourmand it holds. The entrecote was a little too fatty and chewy for our liking. We also had one...vegetarian in our group which seemed to throw the restaurant somewhat and we were asked to tell the chef what we wanted to cook... Paris restaurants in 2019 are generally very well prepared to pull together a tasty vegetarian dish off the menu, but that wasn't the case here.More

A lot of small very tasty dishes. The straff was nice and felt very competent. The wine list was not huge but contained a lot of interesting wines. And all this at a very advantageously price. Very, very good!

We were welcomed by the friendly staff. He kindly explained every item on the menu. The dishes were elegant, creative and well balanced. You could see that they used as much of every ingredient as possible. Everything tasted super fresh. A hidden gem in the...20th arondissement. Recommended 8.7/10More

We spotted this restaurant whilst exploring the Belleville/Menilmontant area of Paris and thought it looked interesting. We were luckily enough able to reserve a table for two days later on a bustling Saturday night. There is a wonderful simple wine list and then small plates...menu or specials to choose from. We had excellent fish, scallops, risotto, and squash dishes. It was pretty good value (even with a poor exchange rate for the £) and I would lobe to have a neighborhood restaurant like this back home in the UK. There was a great atmosphere of locals out for the night and the service was brisk but attentive. The space is small, simple, but very effective. I'll definitely return.More

Really lovely atmosphere, fantastic sea food (the tataki in particular was SUPERB), great wine. Honestly we tried most things on the menu and they were all absolutely cracking. Strong recommend.

This is a good quality French seafood restaurant located in a quiet district hiding away from the hurly-burly of noisy streets. The restaurant is humble enough to claim that it only stands up to local community standards, but I’d like to say its food is...of exceptional flavour and quality. For the details, reservation is a must and sometimes you can be lucky enough to get a table for four for two people (just like us). The size of the dishes is moderate or small depending on your own understanding, but I don’t eat much so this size is perfect. For those who complain of the size, I can only say that if you get used to the size of fish&chips in Britain or burgers in America, then you would be disappointed. But I’m used to Japanese and Korean dishes, so the size here is great for me. The taste is really good, and I recommend maquereau and supion. The staff are busy and friendly, and although I’d not say they’re ‘enthusiastic’ in the sense of responding to you swiftly and taking care of every detail, they’re truly considerate. I spilled a glass of wine due to my fault, but the staff filled my glass again without charging twice. My French is not good, and they explained to us in English quite clearly. All in all, worth trying if you’re looking for genuine French seafood dishes and atmosphere.More

A real little treasure in Belleville. Tapas style food. Really tasty and imaginative. Great service. I was disappointed with my wine but maybe got unlucky in my choice.

Have been to this restaurant on our last 3 visits to Paris but haven’t left a review because we don’t want it to become too popular. Think this boat has sailed as it’s always full of Parisians anyway. So if you are anywhere near this...restaurant go. Beautiful fresh ingredients served in a small plate style. Booking a must as it’s only a small restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive without being too in your face and the food is just amazing seasonal fresh and delightful.More

At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père

I made my reservation by email. When I went in February they only booked at most 10 days in advance. You likely will have to contact them within that time frame.
