Description: When you step into this timeless venue, you will discover a festive restaurant straight out of a storybook and the imaginary world of Asterix. The success of the well-known concept is based on a simple, but effective idea: long rows of tables, mixed salads, grills and wine served from the barrel, all in gigantic quantities. Also worth mentioning is the outstanding welcome which contributes to the friendly atmosphere. Dinner menu : 40€ Lunch menu : 14€

“Great fun”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Having walked over an hour to get here (it looked so much closer on the map!) we had well and truly earned our supper! For €40 you pretty much get all you can eat: huge basket of raw vegetables for salad, charcuterie, bread, pâtés and a main (I had great beef skewers). There is a 'buffet' at either end of place for starters and barrels of wine from which to fill your jug.. Refills are included!

This place has loads of rough and ready character, the kind that makes you want to clank tankards together in a medieval-esque fashion. The unlimited wine definitely aided the fun as did the guitar player who serenaded tables with a huge selection of classics; Beatles, Van Morrison and open to requests.

Staff were very welcoming, funny and happy to organise a taxi at the end of the night.

Such fun!

“A nice place if you are in a festive mood”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Do not go there if you're looking for fine dining or a romantic meal.
But if you're in a festive mood, this is the place for you ! Located on the Ile St Louis, this "tavern" like restaurant welcomes a lot of people, so reservations are recommended.
The staf is very friendly and will put you at ease very quickly.
The food is simple but good : huge veggie basket as a starter, then the buffet : pâtés, saucisson, various salads ... you will then have the main course : brochette de canard,boeuf or agneau, baked potato and many more. Just when you think you can't eat anymore, here comes the delicious cheese platter, the fruit basket and the desert. All this with a great ambiance created by a very friendly guitar playing singer, so don't be afraid to sing along if you want. A good place for a good time.

“very good dinner”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It is a very particular restaurant within the Ile St.-Louis with very nice ambiance.
It is like being in a Middle Age Inn.
They serve typical food with a unique set-up.
Prices are reasonable.
Highly recommended !!

“The gauls must have eaten themselves to death”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Don't go here if you're on a diet, nor a shoestring. The maximum seating is currently 300, but depending on the day less seats are offered. The food is excellent, staff friendly and at the end of the evening you're physically stuffed for the round sum of 40€ per person.

“Still thinking about it”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This my third time here, and I still enjoy as much as the first. This restaurant is unique, the point is to recreate the way the original french ( asterix) ate like. It's nothing like you've ever seen. First you get a basket of veggies, and you make your own salad. The first reaction is to get a little scared, but as you start drinking the unlimited wine and the entire atmosphere starts engulfing you, you start getting falling in love. You then serve yourself an unlimited amount of cold cuts and salads, and here you really start feeling like a gaulois. They have live music and as the night progresses, the drunk patrons start joining into the french music. All in all this experience is DELIGHTFUL! It's perfect for an outing with friends or as a "unique" date.
