First off I have to say that I was determined to visit here after reading the reviews on here. This was my first time in Paris and I checked out reviews beforehand to make sure I enjoyed my stay as much as possible. This is a tiny, unassuming restaurant and, had I not have been looking for it, would have walked past without even considering eating there. It is not a poncy dining experience, it really is as basic and rustic you can get but was a great experience and made my first night in Paris memorable!
I made this my first port of call when arriving in Paris to book and I am so glad I did! Had hoped to go there on the Saturday night and when we arrived it was actually closed for a private childrens birthday party (assuming one of her grand-children) There was another Korean couple there also trying to book. They were going to be closed all weekend as it was the Paris Music Festival on Summer Solstice. As there were 2 lots of us waiting she agreed to open up again for us at 9.30pm, We went off for a wander and came back later. The restaurant is tiny, eclectic and homely. Fed tapas and sangria on arrival, food was amazing home cooked - HUGE portions so beware! Only us, the Korean couple and then an Australian couple arrived. It was like a little party, all having a laugh and a brilliant time. They were turning people away who were trying to book for that weekend and even stayed open later to let a group of 4 have a meal before they left Paris.
All of us eating there came from recommendations on this site!
I was bringing my friend here for her birthday and Zou Zou even had a cake on stand-by complete with a candle similar to a rocket launcher!
We ate lots, drank lots, paid little! The whole bill came to 39 Euro, I had to fight with her to leave 50 Euro as it was well worth it! Christian made several appearances, lots of hugs, lots of photos, lots of gifts and, most importantly, lots of laughs!
Recommend you stop to try and book and then plan the rest of your trip around it!
Trust me, you won't regret it. Taking my children on my next visit!
