“Good local Bistro.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is an excellent place for good food, service and atmosphere. We were served by Pierre who could not have been more helpful in describing dishes and making suggestions of what to eat and drink. We both had a goat's cheese salad starter, followed by steak and chips. The wine, of course, is nothing special, but is more than adequate for such an establishment. The prices are very reasonable (for Paris!) too. Highly recommended for what it is, and we unhesitatingly would go again.

“Strong coffee in a Cozy Bar”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

My coffee addicted boyfriend definitely got his fix here, and my espresso was delicious too! This bar is cute with friendly folks; if I'm in the neighborhood again, I'd definitely stop by again!

“Comfortable and very friendly”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Great value in the heart of St Germain. The bartender Christophe is great and goes out of the way to chat, even if your Francais est comme ci comme ca. Food is a good value, but a great spot to visit if you're looking to avoid the typical Parisian restaurant experience. Would go back again!

“Best meal in Paris and very friendly!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We ate here on our last night in Paris and wish we had done so earlier! It's a fantastic little bar/restaurant with well-priced menus and very friendly service. The young woman who waited on us so extremely helpful, happily explaining the menu to us and making excellent wine recommendations. I had an wonderful duck dish, my husband a nice steak, my mother enjoyed her dorado (one of the daily specials) and my daughter loved her huge cheeseburger. Four of us ate here for just under 100 euros including drinks and desserts. Fantastic all the way around.
