“Amazing food and lovely spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We came here twice during our visit to have the plat du jour at lunch. This was wonderful food, and the service was great. They have a beautiful terasse by the fountain, but the inside looked nice and cozy too. We loved the food - classic French.

“Classic Cassoulet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

A favorite of ours when in Paris. The Cassoulet is the best ever! Just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. We never fail to make a stop when in the neighborhood.

“Excellent authentic French food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Our meal was fantastic. The food is very authentic French and many dishes we had never heard of, but it was all so beautifully prepared and tasted excellent. The server was friendly and accommodating.

“Delightful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Staff couldn't have been more attentive. Our daytime excursion ran late, so they accommodated us by shifting our reservation later. When a table left early, they called to let us know they had flexibility. The food was wonderful. The staff was delightful. The atmosphere was incredible, including a great view of the Eiffel Tower light show At the top of the hour. So far, my favorite meal and dining experience in Paris.

“Good Upscale French Comfort Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Yes, indeed that is a quizzical review title but it accurately depicts the offerings of this quality restaurant. It is a bit of a tourist hotspot(no doubt in part due to Barrack Obama) but still exudes charm. The service was positive and attentive and the food was very good.
