recommended by hotel staff where we stayed. easy to find. good service and very attentive. They didn't mind my limited french and were happy to talk through the bits of the menu I couldn't translate. Although the restaurant is a chain (the menu said there were 6 in paris) the menu was good, varied and typical french brassierie. We went on a friday night and it was very busy with a good atmosphere. Food was good. I had the duck while my wife had veal. There is a big and varied wine list

All in all a good experience

typical bistro style food, love the tartare and various other things. almost always packed, a good place to grab some food after a concert at church Madeleine. they don't care if you eat a big meal or only an appetizer with some wine which is refreshing because sometimes you just don't want to eat that much. Nice area with great delicatessen shops! the waiters take a bit of time at prime time and one needs to speak up ..don't go downstairs, you don't want to eat in a basement wait a bit to be seated upstairs and have a drink at the bar in the meantime. have been there 4 times, never disappointed if you expect bistro style food and a good but not excellent (not super expensive I mean) glass of wine. Love the atmosphere at the place!

From the opening warm, genuine greeting from several staff members to the cheerful good-bye this is a delightful eye (and mouth)-opener. The concept might be formulaic but it delivers really decent food with an interesting choice of wines. We've been twice in ten years and it's still good.

We had a wonderful pasta at this wine bar, the real treat was the chocolate gateau that has won several awards. It was sublime!

Since my wife and I prefer wines from Bordeaux, this has been one of our favorite spots in Paris for more than 10 years. We stop by in the afternoon and select from the vast selection of well priced Bordeaux. Our food choices are pretty much limited to sausison and cheeses. The decor is also pleasant. There is nothing fancy about this place, but it has proved a perfect spot for a mid-day glass (or glasses) of good wine.
