Food ok but not more than that. Plenty of better options in Paris. Very good atmosphere though. But the service, specifically the owner behavior was a shame, unfriendly and rude. For sure I don’t recommend.

Too busy staff during shows and fashion week : you'll have to forget about the bread and have a more than average café gourmand (stale madeleine, tired pana cotta and industrial cannelé). A shame because it used to be a nice place. Going downhill obviously.

Food is disgusting. Worst meal I have ever had. Foie gras horrible, soup terrible, salad horrible and steak so fatty and horrible. Only good thing was the wine! They need to get serious about their chef and food quality.

Kind and friendly but unprofessional service. It took longer than 1 hour to get the desserts after the main course. Generally decent...More

With the great restaurants in Paris, while the service was above average, the food was average at best. Enjoyed a nice lunch but nothing special. Would not pick this location for a meal but got stuck and had to eat in this area. Not a...More

A group of 8 of us visited this restaurant and was impressed with the relaxed atmosphere and good quality food. It's not the most expensive place around with a good choice on the menu. The desserts were particularly nice

The host was disrespectful and aggressive. We reserved a table and arrived on time. The host disregarded us and served a group of his friends before us. When he noted our surprise, he stated that this is the way he does business and if we...More

I've dined all over Paris and this place started and ended when we arrived. The restaurant was EMPTY and we made a reservation two weeks ago. Upon arrival "the owner" tried to seat us in the back of the restaurant. When we politely asked for...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or
