Came here for my birthday with my wife and two others, having been 2 years previous. Both times I had a superb meal. It is cosy and quirky and has chic atmosphere. The waitress and manager both came and sung happy birthday at the end in 'english'. A fantastic effort! Thoroughly recommend for a romantic night out or meal with friends!!

Look forward to returning next time I'm in Paris!!!

We were staying right around the corner on Rue de Charonne and happened to stumped upon this place by accident and certainly were not disappointed, so much so we went back a second night on our trip. I will note the staff and ambience is excellent very cozy, warm and welcoming. The food also doesn't take a back seat as many things are made in house with quality ingrediants (we asked the server)

The first night we are
- French oinion soup - was very thick lots of bread, but my gf loved it
- Whole Hen - roasted with fingerling potato's in a gravy. Was excellent!
- Night Special - Calamari, in mashed potato's with chorizo and natural sauces
- a bottle of wine all in we were about 77 Euro's and were so stuffed could barely finish it

Second night
- Crunchy Goat Cheese - which had basil/ roasted tomato and a crunchy base was excellent
Again had the Calamari special which didn't disappoint the second night
- a couple glasses of wine
- creme brulee (very light and nice)
Second night came in around 45 Euros and we were comfortably full.

Awesome food and place we loved it.

Having dined here 4 times the past 3 years, we're almost regulars, and always greeted with enthusiasm & warmth.
This is an excellent place for groups, with a convivial local atmosphere, unpretentious yet upscale. Service has always been extremely friendly & helpful.
Be adventurous and try the bone marrow starter. All main courses are generous; liver is fabulous, lamb shank is superb, home made rabbit terrine is 5-star, excellent wine list, reasonable noise level and an upbeat atmosphere. Around the corner is a street full of bars, clubs, discos, ethnic joints and a young demo.
This is not always our first choice, but always a good choice.
Go, have a great time & enjoy!
