“Always the same - good”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We been a group of five, I come here for years, but never make it to the top. Meaning the main Resturant room. Squeezed into the entrace, between bar and staircase is not what I understand under atmosphere . Food is great, so.
The Resturant is always fully booked and the owner and another waiter have all hands to do. Food came quick, so.
Belgium French chef stimulates the menu, interesting. Nice wine list. Always a place to return.

“Delicieux!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Read some nice reviews on this restaurant which was a 2-minute walk from the apartment we rented in Paris. When we called and made reservation, we asked if they speak English and were relieved they did. When we arrived, we were greeted very warmly and seated at a table very close to the door, yet just outside the main dining room. The hostess owner explained its still very slow this time of year as locals are just returning from their August vacation and getting their kids readied for school. We didn't think too much about it until we kept watching local Parisians arriving and being seated in the main dining room where there appeared to be plenty of room. It started to feel really awkward as we were the only patrons seated outside a half empty dining room. My husband and I decided not to let it ruin our incredible vacation so simply decided to have a good story to tell later. Anyway, the service was simply professional and we were treated with courtesy, although away from the rest of the restaurant. We started our meal with a crab, tomato and avocado salad that was delicious. Very fresh and lovely presentation on our plate. In order to select the Roasted Lamb special, it must be two orders, so my husband was going to try lamb for the first time. Served very simply with lima beans in the lambs au jus, it was the best I've ever tasted! If its on the menu when you dine here, you can't go wrong. My husband really enjoyed the flavor, as well. Dessert was bread pudding with gingerbread ice cream. It presented like a piece of French toast. Crispy on the outside and sweet and delicious flavor infused on inside. A special treat. Overall, we have to give this restaurant the highest rating because the food and service were top notch. For an aperitif before dinner, a salad and two chef special entrees and bread pudding to share, the tab was only 117 euros. Great value!

“Fabulous Belgian Food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at this French restaurant with more than a hint of Belgian influence. The beer list is a highlight, again with plenty of choice on offer for fans of Belgian beers. The team are warm, friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is splendid.For fans of great Belgian food this is THE place for you. Highly recommended.

“Most go if ur in paris!! Si estas en paris, ve!!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Ok. So we like to eat very well, in this trip we have been in firenze, rome, venice, london and paris. We tried to eat in restorants recommendee for u guys( tripadvisor) if u r in paris u must go to this restorant. Service is amazing, people there like there jobs. Food is just amazing!! If u like seafood please ask for the lobster soup is around 30 euros but as soon u taste it u would find it cheap. We are a family of 4 and we paid around 400 euros with a bottle of red wine and a bottle of champagne. The place is small but really nice. Just gooo if u like eat well.

Great French ambiance welcomes you once you step inside. The hostess is very accommodating with tables and explanations as requested. The $35 euro Prix fix is well worth the price.
Appetizers: safe bet: white asparagus salad with a wonderful light dressing
adventurous: Hearing over a potato pancake and caviar..WOW
Main course: safe bet: Chefs special chicken dish with nutmeg sauce..very nice
adventurous: Fish and scallop seafood stew with cream froth..delicious
Dessert: safe bet: chocolate cake, with chocolate sauce and home made cookie.strawberry and rhubarb tossed with natural sauce. DELICIOUS
