Went there for lunch and was not disappointed. Ignore the 1970s decor and find yourself a seat either inside or outside on the sidewalk under the awning.

We ordered a lunch prix fixe menu (€14 for a starter and a main course): the starter was a salad with iceberg lettuce, walnuts and parmesan and the main was a steak with a pepper sauce. We also orderd a main course a la carte (€16) an omlette with cèpes (boletus mushrooms). Both main courses came with fries and green salads. All dishes were freshly made and portions are generous. The bread was quite good too.

The blackboard caught our eye because it mentioned that all desserts are "fait maison" (home- made). The tiramisu (€6.50) was a bit too sweet but the to-die-for tarte tatin (€7.00) had big, tart and sweet pieces of cooked apple and was served with whipped cream.

Service was friendly and quick. It was cold and rainy out and, so, it's nice to be able to duck into a brasserie when you're half-starved, be seated quickly, order and then be served just as quickly home-made food.

The bill for 2 with tax and tip came to €43.50, which is quite reasonable for the area (2nd district of Paris).

Owner and his wife were so nice and welcoming, nicest service we received in Paris. Duck confit was delicious. brought us out warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Can't say enough nice things about the owners.

A truly brilliant French Cafe,personal service by Albert,the owner himself. A fanatical Rugby fan. Wonderful wholesome food,beaut wine and cold beer (get that pommies,cold beer,the way it should be,not that hot crap that you serve). Is there any wonder Albert dislikes the English,they are always complaining about something.Give it to them Albert,I say.

This great little restaurant is off-the-beaten-path yet it is close to the Opera Garnier and centrally located. It is more "French" than many touristy places. The service - by the owner himself - is very accomodating. (He apologized for the weather - it was raining heavily.). The food is excellent and resonably priced. We will return there again and again.
