Chose to eat here because it looked fuller and brighter than the other restaurants in the area. Greeted by Chez Papa himself who's larger than life and personifies the branding and vibe of the restaurant, we had to make do with a rather cramped table due to limited availability. The atmosphere is cheery, the staff efficient and friendly and the food came in good time. For 30 euro's there was a good three course menu balanced just right so you started to get full about 3/5 of the way through the dessert and there was enough room for a decent bottle of wine. After trying all my fellow diners' dishes I recommend the veal and peppers with the ham salad to start. The french toast with ice cream for dessert was a real treat but make sure you order it early on as they ran out. A nice touch: we went twice and they remembered us the second time with handshakes and bonjours.

We found this restaurant by chance looking for somewhere a bit different from the usual run of restaurants around the Gare du Nord, which can be fairly seedy. It also appears to have a genuine regional base around the South West and the Basque Country, unlike many establishment in this area which offer just some kind of generic "French Cooking", plus pizza. We received a friendly welcome, and started with a tasty Aperitif Maison, which seems to be a kind of supercharged Kir.
We shared a trio de foie gras de canard poêlé to start. Excellent - succulent and full of flavour and large enough to share. My partner had a very good Magret de Canard and I chose a "Bolo Basque" which turned out to be a spicy ragout of duck accompanied by saute potatoes - really good. All washed down with a good and not unreasonably priced Cahors.
The place has a pleasant and relaxed ambiance, and I expect we will seek it out again when we are next in the area.

Ate here with my wife and two kids on a Sunday night in late-October. To be honest we wouldn't normally have eaten here - we chose it as it was one of the only places open on a Sunday evening!!
The restaurant itself was nice - clean and well-decorated. The staff were very welcoming and seemed happy enough to speak English when they realised that my French isn't particularly good. The restaurant was fairly busy, and the atmosphere was good.
We found the menu a little confusing, and were disappointed to find that there was no childrens' menu - so my youngest (5yrs old) ended up with a dish that cost around £10 and left the majority of it. We also found it to be a little cramped the tables were fairly small and rather close together.
The food itself was good, and the portions were a decent size. Would probably go back but without the kids.

The Restaurant has a sign on the door saying it's undergoing renovations so it might be worth calling before showing up. It's not clear how long the renovations will last. It used to be very good.
