My partner and I visited this restaurant on the 23rd March 2013 while visiting Paris for the weekend. We had spotted it the previous day while walking to the Louvre (just round the corner) and liked both the look and location of this restaurant so decided to have lunch there. We did not leave disappointed. We were greeted by the owner, Dominique, and seated in the very clean and elegant dining area that benefits from a lot of natural light thanks to its big glass windows, which makes a nice change from the dim yellow light of other restaurants near by. The menu was simple to read thanks to being in both French and English and had a good selection of starters, mains and desserts. I had the very delicious and crisp Veal Milanese which was cooked extremely well and would certainly recommend. My partner had the Lasagna which she enjoyed very much. For dessert I had the gourmet coffee which was very nice. My partner had the amazing strawberry salad following Dominique's recommendation and loved it. The service was excellent and attentive and added to the enjoyment of our meal. The bill came to just over 80 euros (including wine and tip) and was worth every cent. We had eaten at other, more expensive restaurants which are not as good as Oscars. We loved this place and are really happy to have found it and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Paris.

We used tripadvisor to find this place and coincidentally, it was below our hotel, The hotel lumen. We loved the food and the service. The ambiance is elegant and romantic. The salmon was very fresh and savory. Perfect with the steamed vegetables. The linguini with clams was also fresh and perfectly prepared. Tiramisu dessert with pistachios was the icing on the cake. We also had a small baby with us and the staff was very accommodating and friendly, especially the owner. They made us feel so welcome and we will for sure come back again. It is a great place to enjoy a romantic dinner on a date. You won't regret it!!!!

you know...an Italian ...after some days in beautiful Paris, always starts to miss his cuisine :).
So I decided with some friends(all from Paris) to try this Italian fusion restaurant in the centre of the Ville Lumiere. The atmosphere is very nice , the room and the tables very clean, the food is really good, almost as in Italy. The products come directly from there. Try the excellent burrata (very creamy white cheese,soft and delicious) as starter, risotto for main course, and tiramisù of Pistacchio (Pistache from Bronte, Sicily,the best in the world) The Rosè by the class is very good and not expensive at all! Special mention to Dominique,a very nice person , classy but with sense of humour. Prices are average for Paris, so expect to pay 30 to 40 Euro for a menu, for dinner. I will definetly come back when in Paris . Ciao Dominique

Had a nice evening with great food. Had an assortement of starters followed by the risotto. The portions were really big so dessert was out of question.
