Very crowded. Very small restaurant though it’s small everywhere in Paris, this one is tight spaced. Lol. But good food. Friendly staff/owner. The scallop dish is soooo good

This cozy restaurant offers outsized value. Our meal was the perfect way to begin our visit to Paris, from the pate to the veal to the lamb to the heavenly dessert.

The others thought the food was pretty good- I thought it was mediocre bordering on bad. My cod was OK- the accompanying risotto was drenched in about two cups of cheese. The dessert special- some weird meringue concoction -was dreadful and inedible. Very heavy French...More
