Oisters - excelent, snails - ok, chocolate cake - ok. Also ordered steak, which was good and special french pork sausage, that was impossible to eat because of the awful smell. Sadly our waiter did not mention that it is very specific dish, only after...they saw, that we didnt eat it, they said that it is specific.More

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel and met our high expectations. The food and service were excellent. A few vegetarian options were available. Great atmosphere and very popular.

We had no reservation on a Saturday evening but were seated without any problems at all. The order of main course took a very long time but when it came it was very good. We had braised lamb and Asian beef, both courses very well...done. The potato gratin with the lamb was to die for. For desert one of us had a very nice apple cake, two had the chocolate torte, wonderful. The wine was also very well chosen. Only the waiting time decrease the rating.More

Fits the bill for your typical corner bistro. Great place for a quick bite to eat. Attentive, friendly service.

If you want to go to a typical Parisian bistro but cannot choose (there are so many!), this one is a good choice. We had the vegetarian hamburger, which is basically lots of grilled vegetables in a bun. Some salad on the side and fresh...fries and you certainly get your money's worth. So good value for money and decent, fresh products, can't go wrong.More

It has beautiful windows overlooking the street and is very welcoming. The staff is helpful and smiling and you feel at home. We ate some really tasty orange pies. The prices are in the average of Paris (pretty high) but this is something that one...should quickly get used to in Paris .....More

Let's face it, sometimes all you crave - even in Paris - is a great burger. You'll find one at Centenaire Bistrot in the Marais. And if "Valerie" happens to be your server so much the better.

For drinks and relaxing quite good. Rose wine was very good and with reasonable price. The service was fast.

Never have I felt so welcome in Paris. Very good food and excellent ambience and atmosphere. Went with 3 kids, but will be back without kids as well. Fantastic attentive staff as you would only expect at a Michelin recommenced restaurant.
