Fast and efficient service; simple tasty food options (menu of the day). Had the fish and chips - nice big chunk of fish. Cheese plate was even better. House red wine was fine. Lots of good beers to choose from as well.

Great selection of quality beers on tap. Nice manager who speaks good English. Had chips which were good, but the dessert (pana cotta) was pretty bad. If you're looking for good IPA's on tap, this is the place to go.

Excellent choice of beers and good quality beers at a decent price for a big city. Food was OK. Staff were friendly and were helpful if your French isn’t up to much. Could have done without the piped rock music but had a nice evening.

Hi, Sorry but you ate at the neighbour restaurant "Taverne Karlsbrau" who serves this flamekuche. We do not. Could you please modify your comment not to mislead other people? Thanks

Bercy / Nation
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
