“Hard to find”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I don't have much to add to the reviewer who found nothing special here, foodwise. But I wanted to help others who are trying to find this restaurant. The door marked "12" is not the door to the restaurant--it is a little further on into the passage. There is no name anywhere! Seems to be a good place for very young people. Our waiter was quite accommodating--even finding us a table inside when it started to rain (after we had asked for a table outside). You can call to make a reservation but be prepared to speak French!

“An authentic Parisien dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Fantastic salads, good quality food and nice selection of wines. The service is outstanding with great recommendations when you're unsure. Get there early to get a table outside in the lovely passage. You will not be disappointed!

“OK, nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2011

This restaurant is located in the busy area around the Centre Pompidou, in the nice and relatively quiet Passage Molière. The quality of our food varied: for instance, my main course of roasted duck was excellent, but my three sips of watery gazpacho were a disappoiting starter. It's a student-type restaurant with pretty reasonable prices, but nothing special.
