This bistro is very close to the Pantheon. It is small and cozy, but the ventilation needs to be improved. Although it was October, it was still warm in Paris. When they shut the front door, all of the kitchen smells (lots of foie gras being fried) filled the restaurant, which in turn permeated our clothing.

The two young women in the front of the restaurant were pleasant and helpful in navigating the menu. There were some interesting combinations of ingredients. For starters we had a pear and choizo dish as well as baked chevre served with sliced apples on top of flattened gingerbread. For our main dishes we had rabbit and scallops. With their recomended bottle of wine, our bill was 86 euros. The serving size of each dish was way too large - more like American portions, therefore, we had no room for dessert.

The service was excellent and the woman who greeted us spoke exceptional English, so it made it easy to navigate the menu. She was also very patient to translate the menu for us from their board, which changes regularly. The chef even came out to greet us and serve us the food. The atmosphere was very cozy and welcoming. The duck was very good, and we are not usually lovers of duck. My steak was good but a bit over cooked. The wild mushrooms were a bit grainy and needed to have been strained a bit better. Overall it was a very nice dining experience and we really found the quality to be good for the price point. We would go back again.

Wonderful varied menu displayed on chalkboards. You can choose price fixe (3 courses) but you might be too full for the bountiful food. Deliciously prepared and beautifully presented, the smell of the food preparation was most enticing. Excellent waitress.
Definitely give it a try but check the map first as it's tucked away near Rue Mouffetard.

Wonderful little restaurant in the 5th. Great food prepared and served by just three young people.

If you would like an authentic meal at a great price definitely give this place a try.

This is a great little bistro with a warm feel, great service and the food was fantastic! The menu is on a chalkboard and in French but our waitress was very helpful in helping us order. The pear appetizer must be tried and the scallops in a vanilla sauce were sublime. The wine list was decent and the whole meal quite reasonably priced for Paris. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and would revisit as well.
