We had a fabulous Sunday lunch at a classic French restaurant with amazing service - the waiters were so friendly especially to the children. Location excellent as really close to the Eiffel Tower. Not too touristy with plenty of locals.

You should be able to find their number on line. Check Trip Advisor because sometimes they have reservations available on their site and at least they will have the phone number to do so. You won't be sorry - great... More

Hello, I am just a tourist creating tips for others. I do not work at the restaurant. You need to make your own reservation. Just Google them and call- they are very friendly.
