It's a chain restaurant - but for all that service was great and very friendly and the food was very appetizing. Nice to sit, relax and watch the Bercy Village life stroll by.

Three of us ate at this restaurant early in the evening. The food was all of very poor quality. Its preparation took away most taste, leaving a bland and unappetising meal. One of us had a warm goats cheese with salad and french fries. The goat cheese arrived on a rock-hard half a piece of toast (the end crusts had been cut off because too burned). The french fries arrived 15 minutes later after reminding the waiter who had forgotten them. The salad was a mound of lettuce, completing the unattractive look of the toast and cheese. Another of us ordered a burger without onions, received one with onions, which had to be sent back. She gave up trying to ask for a specific order, and put up with a partly unwanted standard burger as this was all the staff could handle. It was of poor quality when (also after about a 15 minute delay due to sending back etc etc) it arrived. The third diner had 3 lamb chops, all from a bonsai lamb. The green beans were watery, closer to school dinners of the nineteen-fifties, than to anything expected in a restaurant in Paris nowadays. We would have been better fed, and come away richer, had we gone to MacDonalds.

Staff were great as we arrived at 11 p.m. after a late arrival in Pairs (held up on Eurotunnel). Staff lovely, food arrived quickly and was great given the lateness of the hour. Well done!

Had a quick two-course meal here prior to going to a local concert. The service was excellent. Food was very good quality and not bad value for Paris. Did get very busy as we were leaving, but that's probably a sign of how popular it is.

Nice steak served at this chain of restaurants, one of the diners fries were cold but they were quickly changed for fresh warm ones. Waited a little too long for our meal but being Good Friday the place was very busy.
