You will find many French standards here, all cooked well, and in a very comfortable setting. Great for a lunch if you are in the 15th!

This is an over pretentious place in terms of décor and menu, run by a “Maître restaurateur”. Ultra-small tables and very tight spaces for the big chairs installed. The food was below average. However, we had a real issue with the coffee ice-cream which was...More

I returned to this place after a long time and found their food not good enough. All my colleagues were of the same advice. I was raving for their stake with the burning thyme and it was really a let down. Will not go back...More

I live nearby and often good there for a drink or the dinner. Food is good and is "maitre restaurateur" labeled which means good quality and not industrial. Service is OK and good music. A "Demi" is around 2,50 during happy hours. Good one.
