Recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel. You can't book so expect to queue. I think if they did take bookings you'd never get in! Food was exceptional, take some time to study the menu before making your choice... we spent our entire time asking "what's that" as we saw other people's food coming out.

We were staying just down the road at Hotel Baume, so we were lucky enough to eat at this bistro on a number of occasions. The seasonal menu is well thought out and the food is sublime. It's always packed, but the staff are efficient, helpful and coped with my bumbling French. Get there before 12 for lunch or be... More

In 2013 I swore I would not return to this restaurant based on the terrible dining experience we had then. However, we walked by and there was plenty of seating both inside and outside at lunch time so we decided to peruse the menu. As we were looking at the menu which was outside on a table - where no...

This place near the hotel I stay at is always packed and now I know why. Simply delicious food and good coffee too.

I was there with friend who already written review but I would just like to add few things. The best chefs make simple everyday food exquisite. And that is what I call art. Yves - you are artist. It was orgasmic, juicy, delicious experience.

Viv de vivre is the final conclusion following chat with our next table neighbour (10 cm away) in (his very)broken English and our nonexistent French, a grey bearded artist who was enjoying lunch with his friends at the time we arrived at the restaurant. Yes, menu is in French - fortunately, dishes on the table next to us were looking... More

We came across this place and absolutely loved the food and wine on offer. Sat outside under the heaters was perfect for watching the world go by.

The place is small, small tables, no room between the tables. Avoid peak hours (no reservation on Sundays). Very good and fresh food, with some good specials written on the mirror. If you do not get a table you can try one of the two "avant comptoir" next door (stand up counter food of top quality at bargain price). A... More

So we ended up here when looking for Lavant Comptoir, which is apparently the tapas version of the restaurant next door. Oh well! The food was good none the less! There was a line when we walked up as it had apparently just opened for lunch, so we grabbed one of the last tables outside. It was the perfect spot... More

Don't get bored of making the line because you'll gonna experience the food at the best bistro in Paris. Simple cuisine with a mixture of flavors, in perfect portions and quantity. Also very good and french wine options. For dessert, please try les pruneaux aux vins....ohh la la!
