This restaurant was recommended by friends, so on a recent trip to Paris we decided to give it a go...we had the set price menu which ended up being SEVEN courses for €31 each - bargain! I had the lentils, duck with aligot, and the chocolate mousse, is was interspersed with bread related mini-courses that were all delicious. The lentils were flavoursome, but need work aesthetically in my opinion and the portion was massive! It could have easily fed four! The duck with aligot was to die for, just good honest comfort food. The meat was juicy with a gorgeous crispy skin, and the cheesy aligot was Devine! I was a little disappointed that our waiter didn't stretch the aligot all out as I had seen in pictures, but he did bring it to the table and explain more about this regional dish, which was nice to know. The chocolate mousse was heavenly, but I think the portion size is part of the humorous atmosphere - the bowl was the size of my head! This could have easily fed four chocolate lovers...and I can eat! I do hope they recycle the food somehow!!!! We ordered a Bordeaux wine, which was delicious. Our waiter Stephane was a delight, he was polite but very funny and personal. He showed me photos of his beautiful child, and I felt like he was keen to get to know us in return. Stephane is a real credit to this already fine establishment, I cannot praise him enough. If I had one grumble, it would be that we were seated quite tucked away upstairs, away from any hustle and bustle which we quite enjoy...we would have preferred to be downstairs I think? If we return to Paris, we will most definitely return to is restaurant, and request the expert service of Stephane. I told our waiter that we intended to review the restaurant here...if you are reading this Stephane, then I hope your little one is well. You helped to make our stay in Paris all the more wonderful! Thank you!
