“Good meal in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

After a visit to the Eiffel Tower, we found this restaurant on TripAdvisor due to its close proximity. The menu was simple but reasonably priced for the location. Our group of 8 ordered a wide variety of dishes from the pasta to pizza. Good portions and everyone enjoyed their meal. It wasn't extraordinary, but was a nice meal out of the cold.

“Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

My friends and I stopped here for dinner after an evening stroll around the Eiffel Tower. The prices were reasonable, they had a good house wine and the pizza was delicious.

“Cute, good location, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

It was a beautiful evening to sit outside at this restaurant near the Eiffel Tower. It is small, but well decorated. We were greeted in a very friendly manner. The food was good, but nothing special and a bit overpriced for the pasta dishes. Our waiter this night was inattentive once the food was served and despite the small size of the restaurant and the lack of a large crowd he did not stop by to see if anything else was needed. I noticed that when a pizza was served at the neighboring table they were given the hot oil right before, but it was never provided to our table. This happened to be the 3rd time we had pizza on this trip and this was the first time that was overlooked. The price of the food is average near the Eiffel Tower, which means it is on the pricey side for what you get. I'd try out some other places in this neighborhood before returning.

“Totally underwhelming”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

We are mystified by all the great reviews on here, which did not at all reflect our experience. I think that, like most non-locals, we ended up here because it is near the Eiffel Tower. The location is the best thing going for it. The food was ok, nothing special at all, and because of its location, it was pricey for what we got. My husband had a pizza which was the best of the four dishes ordered by our party.
We have been in Paris for the better part of a week so far, and this is the first time that we have had bad service. The waiter was completely inattentive, bordering on rude. After our meals were served, he never came back to check on us, at all. I had to flag him down twice to ask for more water after he passed our table numerous times with all our glasses empty. This is not a large restaurant and it was not crowded, so there was really no excuse.
Not a good choice.
