Visited this little cozy place after reading the reviews here. The place is very small and the entrance so humble, that I missed it the first time I passed by.

With only 36 seats in a small room, the atmosphere is intimate and cozy. The waiter/host was very friendly and helpfull, chatting with the customers, offering to take a picture of a group of girls our for a night on the town etc..

Had a large steak with vegetables etc on the side, perfectly prepared and seasoned. Along with this, a glass of wine recommended by the waiter, which fit perfectly. Both the size of the portion and the amount of wine was perfect.

All in all, a positive good experience with great food.

The place is VERY popular, so reservations can be recommended.

Romantic crammed little place just off Pigalle. The lamb shank was excellent and we had crème brûlée for dessert. The waiters were nice and spoke English, but welcomed our attempts at ordering in French. We were luck to find a table though, as it is very small.

The restaurant is small and very cozy, located in a hidden place, great meal, very well done - we had casseroled snails, steak with foi gras, scallops, eggs, chocolate cake and crem brule, very welcoming and friendly service, definitely worth next visit!

OK it's a tourist favourite but I like it. Evenings can be hectic and you usually need to book but as we have confirmed today, if you get here for an early spot lunch then there may well be space. It's small, cosy, on a steepish hill. It is a simple room. The few staff are entirely friendly and helpful. The prices are good and the menu which has only varied slightly since our last lunch here last spring, is tasty and perfectly balanced.

What a romantic, gorgeous little place. I love love love this place. Paris in all it's glory! I can't compliment this place enough and can't wait to go back! We tried most things and loved them all and the atmosphere is perfect for a fab meal out. Make the most of it and don't rush it, it's an unbelievable experience!!
