“Sound bistro meal with a fresh touch; menu a very good value.”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

NOTE: There are three restaurants sharing this brand name. This review is for the Blvd. Montparnasse location.

For the first night in Paris, tired and jet-lagged, we weren't looking for much, but found from John Talbot's blog, a surprisingly satisfying meal in this smart, nicely furnished modern bistro. The menu items were mostly familiar dishes, but done with a light hand. We started with cold, gravlax style salmon, a small butterflied filet rather than thin slices, which was flawless. The four delicate ravioli, with a hint of foie gras inside, and just a spoonful of light cream and a few cepes was spot on. It was a cold and rainy night, so we went for substantial entrees. The confit duck was uncommonly tender and flavorful, with pureed potatoes to help capture all the jus, and the special of the day -home-made sausage with pistachios - arrived as four silver dollar sized slices of artisanal charcuterie, with carrot puree as a side. Desserts were good, the tarte tatin better than a plate of mixed pear and apple pieces with a gingerbread cookie. Service was good, and the wine list modest but diverse and fairly priced. We rarely confine ourselves to ordering the menu unless it happens to have exactly the dishes we want, but in this case all three courses could be done as a menu for 27 Euros; two courses would be 22 Euros, quite a value in this high-priced town. If the other two locations share this formula and successful execution, bravo.

“And the pleaseure was ours!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We pre-booked this restaurant prior to our trip to Paris based on other trip advisor reviews and we were certainly not dissappointed. The food was excellent and the whole experience was enhanced by the delightful lady who waited on us. She was charming and attentive and even took time to help us with our french phrases.

“Modern French”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We came on a slow night and had the full-attention of our waiter (slash the owner). He was great with questions, and made me a vegetarian risotto that was not on the menu. The meal began with delicious bread and a tasty cold soup, and ended with a noisette (hazelnut espresso.) We enjoyed the meal and found it was a great value too.

“Fabulous Find”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

This charming restaurant located on Monparnasse walking distance from Galleries Layfayette was a real find. The food was innovative, the service delightful and competent. The chef popped out numerous times to check on the service and answer questions. I will put this on my list of returns next time I am in Paris!
