It serves French cuisine bistro associated with the world of spices, a subtle blend of classic cuisine and revisited.

First time to Paris. Made reservations in person during the day but by the time we got there for dinner they were confused as to who we were. We were the only people in the restaurant at 7pm. They crammed another family with a baby stroller right next to us. Glasses were not clean and the waitress was oozing attitude as if she could not be bothered. Au revoir

La Boussole is a hidden gem in the 6th arr. The pre fix dinner is a great value as well as serving wonderful food. The fois gras pate' served as an entre was excellent. The margret canard was simple and very tasty. Good choice of deserts. Hard to find but worth the trip.

Booked this after reading reviews from several different sites. The manner in which the food is prepared is definitely different from any traditional french restaurant. Our waiter, Eric, was amazing - very friendly, helpful, and eager to please. Our French is not so good, and Eric was more than willing to help us get it better. We did the pre-fixe menu and had a couple of drinks and a bottle of wine for 100 Euro. Great value for the price, the food was memorable but it was really the service and the atmosphere that would bring us back again. Merci Eric!

This restaurant serves up a mixture of Indian, Far East, and Middle Eastern flavors (sometimes mixed in the same dish!). Unlike "fusion" restaurants in the U.S., where the mix of different tastes is often overwhelming, the chefs add spices with a subtle hand, and the outcome is excellent. Recommend going for lunch, as there is a good variety of selections and the menu price is a bit lower than for dinner.

Made a reservation over the internet before leaving Canada. Excellent website and immediate confirmation. Enjoyed our meal, everything well presented and enjoyable. Price reasonable.
Service was friendly, well paced and we would definitely go back again.
