Ceaser salad was over dressed to the point it was limp. Looked amazing but was not. Fish was burnt on onside, and was flipped over to cover it

Myself and my friend stayed in Paris for 2 days in June, our apartment was very close by. After a long journey into Paris we were absolutely starving and decided to visit this place as it was only a 5 mins walk away and looked perfectly French. We were greeted and sat straight away and the service through out was... More

This is an unfussy establishment where the owner serves you respectable food. Romantic notions about French bistros should be suppressed in advance. We had snails, ravioli and Fricasse de saint-Jacques, all worth eating, though none of them outstanding. There was a decent Chablis at 33 euros. Nothing more to say, really.

A little gem in Le Marche des enfants rouges to drink/dine away from the masses on the main street. A hearty sized Meat and cheese platter for €16. And Beers around €4 each.

good food but I would say not too eat too much as very rich and fatty. The ambiance is great , service is very good and very French relaxed bistro.

I came to Paris for 3 days with my mother and our host listed this as one of his favourite places to visit so we were excited to go there. We we put in a tiny table between two other tables with little to no room and felt like intruders when we tried to talk. There was no space -... More

My wife and I arrived at the Restaurant about 3 pm after a long walk round the 11th arrondissment on 28th of August. We had visited the eatery in the past and had enjoyed excellent food and been impressed by the dynamic young local crowd eating there. We asked the waitress Alisson whether we could eat so late and she... More

Decent meal at a reasonable price, what in years gone by one would have got from the Guide Routier (whatever become of that?). I can believe that, as other reviews have indicated, the recent change of management might have let former standards slip, but we had two perfectly good meals there at the end of July, with four Francophobe young...
