We walked in and it smelled like my grandma's pot roast, so I knew it would be delicious. It's reasonably priced for the amount of food/courses you get. It was very crowded as it seems to be quite popular given the good reviews, which is...More

Based on reviews I was expecting an exceptional experience. What I got instead was unremarkable. Service was wanting—it was very difficult to summon a waiter. The food itself was just okay. The tartare tasted nothing more than raw chop meat, the coq au vin was...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make
