Amazing meal and service - the kind of rare dining experience where you're sorry when you're full! It feels like an intimate neighborhood restaurant but the cuisine is sophisticated. It's one menu with the chef's choice for the day and his "choices" were perfection. (A bonus is that it is very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity - €35 prix fixe). You absolutely MUST have reservations - it's very small and very popular.

I have been here multiple times with many different palates. As you can see from the many reviews, the dinner menu is fixed and includes an appetizer, main dish, cheese plate, and dessert. Each time I have been, the courses have all been incredible. From warm soup to gazpacho, beef to veal, goat cheese to bree, the quality is always outstanding. This place is not the best option for those who have a hard time "going with the flow" as there is no decision in the meal and the menu is a surprise. However, if you come with an open mind and palate, this place will provide guaranteed good eats.

This is a real nice restaurant. It is small (better book a table in advance) but has a really nice atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and attentive. They only serve one fixed menu but that was pretty good. Starting with excellent gazpacho. The main course was slowly cooked lamb and vegetables. After that some cheese was served. And last (but certainly not least) was a delicious pannacotta. The staff had excellent wine recommendations (not cheap but also not crazy expensive). Certainly worth a visit!

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a table on the same night we discovered the restaurant / wine bar in Zagat. The owner was very generous in explaining the menu (blind menu, no choices) and suggested a wine for the meal.

We loved the hearty food, amazing flavors and smells. We also enjoyed watching the orchestration of the small team of 5 as they served and cleared for the next seating. It was remarkable to see how synchronized the staff was that night!

Definitely add this to your itinerary for Paris, but call ahead so you can be sure to experience this delightful place.

My daughter and I enjoyed dinner here. The bistro is very small, lots of charm and wonderful food. There is only one menu served each evening -- the evening we were there we enjoyed carrot soup, duck breast, cheese plate and pistachio pancetta -- and a great bottle of wine. The plating of the food is as beautiful as the well as great tasting. Make sure you have a reservation.
