“Fabulous Little Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is a great place to get some good food with great ambiance! Lots of locals eat there so you know it is good. After dinner and wine walk the streets in the area which is loaded with bars and shops. This place was a graet find.

“Great recommendation from the hotel staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

The staff at Hotel d'Aubusson recommended this restaurant. They made reservations for us and it was a good that they did. Even with reservations we had to wait for 20 minutes before being seated. The restaurant is so small that you must stand in the dinning room to wait for your table. The waiter was nice enough to give my wife and I a complimentary glass of wine while we waited.

When we were seated, we got a great table. The one right in front of the window is a perfect table for two. The food was very good. We went for the specials listed on the board. I had the duck breast which was cooked perfectly and my wife had the boeuf bourguignon. She enjoyed their interpretation but commented on the lack of carrots, onions, and mushrooms that she has found in other recipes. We had a very good bottle of wine recommended by the waiter that went perfectly with our meal.

“Cozy Restaurant with Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Yummy food with a Good variety of selections. We ate there three times, once with a graduate of a New York culinary school and another with wine experts from California. They were all very pleased. The service was quite good except for one evening when the server was harried.

“Went back for a return visit before departing Paris...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had such an amazing experience here the first time as tourists, we wanted to make it our last meal before we left Paris (until we can return again, of course). My wife had beef bourguignon that was amazing one night and the shank of lamb the next visit. I stuck with seafood both times and the scallops and later the sea bass were also delicious.

What really separated them was the wine pairing recommended by our sommelier/waiter and the chocolate soufflé dessert. It was simply the amazing French meal that you would envision if you were traveling in from somewhere else.

“Recommended by our French hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We were staying with a French family who were renting out rooms in Montparnasse who recommended this restaurant over some of the more famous names nearby. We were the only tourists in the restaurant which was otherwise packed with Parisians. Limited menu, but excellent quality at 2/3 the price of nearby competitors. We found the service efficient given the number of local patrons.
