My partner and I stumbled across this place in the Latin Quarter on our first night in Paris. It looked cosy, packed out with diners and had numerous awards & stickers on the front window so we thought we'd give it a go.
Perhaps it was a busy Thursday evening, but we waited for 15-20 minutes before we were offered a drink which wasn't the best start. We ordered the house Sauvignon white wine which tasted pretty terrible and definitely not worth €14 for 50cl.
The main dishes looked expensive and having travelled from London that day we were both very hungry, so we opted for the set menu (€25 each) and were very disappointed by the dishes. My starter was bland - essentially a small dome of cold mashed potato with some tuna mayonnaise running through it, served with two cherry tomatoes and a piece of brown avocado. My partner's was worse - a small and soggy empanada,which had clearly just been zapped for 30 seconds in the microwave and a side of lettuce leaves doused in mayonnaise.
So by the time the mains came out we were famished, but unfortunately they were just as disappointing. Mine was essentially a creamy chicken curry with rice - a tiny portion of overcooked stringy chicken and some rice. My partner's main was a minuscule dry & tough pork chop served with half a plate of lettuce - laughable really as it was like they had run out of vegetables or sides.
We convinced ourselves that things could only get better with the dessert - and we thought our choice of mango sorbet was a winner..until we saw the waitress carry a large tub of the stuff through the restaurant, so it had clearly been bought in!!!
The total bill came to around €70 which was very poor value compared to the array of restaurants and bistros in Paris and the ingredients / portion size in our dishes.
Perhaps the set menu was the wrong choice and dishes on the main menu would have been better (although looking at the other reviewers are complaining about high prices) but in my opinion a set menu should offer value and perhaps cheaper dishes / cuts of meat.
We've both dined at Peruvian restaurants in London and I'm afraid to say this is nothing like the food we've tasted before.
