“If you appreciate good food this is worth a try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I work and travel all over the world, so know what good food is.
This certainly is up there, so much so I’m making a return trip next week.
The menu whilst not extensive has a good variety, and the service is prompt.
I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, and so did my colleague.
The portions are not huge, good cuisine never is, but felt pleasantly satisfied.
I would recommend this to anyone, and suggest booking early as it does get full.

“Worth the trip!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

It was a coincident we found this place, but it was worth walking there from the Metro. The restaurant has a former Michelin-chef in the kitchen and we could taste and see that in the menu. The place has about 20 seats inside and the restaurant isn´t the biggest in the world, but it was the nicest place and the best service we got on our trip to Paris. The owner is the waiter there and she greets you with a smile and are happy to help you translate the french menu, when you are 2 danes who doesn´t understand a word of french. The food is simple but has the most amazing taste and it is very creative.. We where there fore 3 hours and had champagne, 3 course meal, coffee and drinks and when the check came it said 110 euro.. We recommend this place highly. We will definitely come back again and the place is much better than some of the other restaurants which is better ranked on this site.

“Great little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great atmosphere and wonderful food. The waitress was very patient with us and spoke wonderful English and translated the menu for us. You will not go wrong with this restaurant. 2 plats and 2 desserts came to a grand total of 64 euros. There is a reason why this place has 5 stars!!!

“Somewhat disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

The food was OK, but somewhat disappointing compared to reviews. The waitress was rather unprofessional and worked-up, and did not make you feel at home.
