We came here on a recommendation and were very glad we booked a table! The place is tiny - I only saw the upstairs, but there was room for maybe 15 people in total? It's not the easiest place in the world to find, so make sure you look up how to get here before you come - but once you arrive, you're in for a treat!
We (family of 4, all adult) gratefully piled into the toasty warm restaurant after a bit of aimless wandering in the cold & snow, took our seats and were immediately presented with a free glass of sangria as an aperitif. Then we took a look at the menu, all deciding to go with the fixed price menu (3 courses) for EUR 18. There was a selection of about 5 starters, including a rustic pâté and several salads. The main courses were all variations on steak-frites - different cuts of meat. We put in our orders with the friendly waiter (French-speaking only) and sat back to watch the chefs in the open kitchen at work - the way they were throwing huge cuts of steak on the open grill, we knew we were in for a treat!
And it did not disappoint - we were all happy with our steaks, the fries were perfect, thin-cut frites and the pepper sauce we ordered with it was creamy with just a touch of burn in the back of your throat. We washed it down with the house wine, red and white, which were both fine. Desserts were OK, nothing special, but we were also offered a complimentary digestif - I think it was a brandy of some sort?
Not the kind of place you go if you want to be seated far away from other diners - the couple at the table next to ours were virtually in our laps, but luckily they were friendly and chatty! The place filled up really quickly as people settled in for the night in the cosy room. Such a treat to find an authentic kind of place like this in Paris for such a great price!
