Just one waiter on his own. He was a bit pushed but he was curt to the point of rudeness. If I'd been on my own I would have walked out. Food was nothing startling, bit mundane and perhaps overhyped. I had a pudding from the pudding bar and nobody could identify the gloop on the top. The actual fruit... More

We have been here a number of times and never been disappointed. Like many back street no frills bistros in Paris, and I have been to a few, the atmosphere is busy, the tables and seating basic, and the food superb. If you are a foodie like us, you will appreciate perfectly cooked and rested pan fried duck breast that... More

My first visit to this restaurant, I love the rustic french bistro feel of this place.My starter was good (Mackerel). I had Duck breast which I thought was a little over cooked for me. My mate had the Pork which again was a little dry, it may of been because we had a early seating but it was still nice... More

Once seated there was no feeling of being rushed..our waitress took our drinks order and returned a bit later to take... More

Don’t be put off by the scruffy exterior and the internal decor. The food here is excellent, with some traditional French favourites on the menu. We had 3 courses and a bottle of wine – great value at £44 for 2 people. Service is pleasant and efficient. They don’t seem to run to wine coolers, but kept our bottle in... More

Used to come here when it first opened and it was good and authentic. Went back a couple of months ago as a group birthday party and thought the food was excellent and the value very good. The restaurant is nothing to look at inside so not for a romantic meal but good atmosphere.

We have visited this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. The food is always incredible. The decor, although rough round the edges just adds to the charm! I am sure they have bought new tables since we last went! Fantastic value for money and super customer service! Be sure to book though, we saw several people being turned away!

The exterior and decor do not promise much. But after several recommendations I gave it a try. Very good. Very. I had the Lyonnais Sausages and mash and they were spot on. And pretty much bargain prices - three courses for what many charge for a main. Give it a shot.

Absolutely love this venue. £20 for Champagne - £10 for house wine - 3 courses for £13.95. Great staff - great food. The decoration is definitely a little rough around the edges but who cares!?
