After seeing notre dame we were tired and looking for a place to have dinner. After reading the reviews decided to have dinner there, however don't expect anything more than average. A plate costs from 13 to 20 euro, drinks expensive. The portions are big but variety minimum. The waiters are funny but got stressed when a big group of customers arrived, and pushed me and my sister to a small table at the back of the restaurant, overlooking the road and not notre Dame. Would recommend it for a coffee break and not for dinner and only if you get a seat with view to notre dame.

It's a 2min walk from the Notre Dame Cathedral. We needed a place to have a quick meal, and it served the purpose.
The service was quick, food was fine (my husband ordered duck with potatoes and found it tasty), prices were not high (main dish about 17-20 euros, dessert - 7-8 euros).
If you don't expect a first-class service of a Michelin restaurant, it's OK.

I went with my gf on a busy night. The friendly waiter took us to our table. The food is very good French bistro food. I had the beef bourginon, and the gf had the duck with potatoes. We shared the food and both were filling and tasted perfect. We also got a free starter (salmon mousse) and the customary french bread. With the drinks it came to about 40 euros, which was a nice price, and we were full up. Considering it bang opposite the Notre Dame, it is a very good place. Nice interior too, but then you could say that about everywhere in paris!

Terrible service quality in this Café near Notre Dame. Almost empty. After asking several times for being served finally we could order something to drink. We had to wait 10 minutes to order a coffee and a tea. Other guests left before ordering anything. Not worth to go.

We went in here and asked them if we could use the toilet. They said yes. But there was a charge. We paid it. We then proceeded to go towards the toilet when the manger attacked us and demanded to know where the money was. I pointed to the bar counter where the money i had left was clearly visible - he started to go crazy and said that we had underpaid as we were two! We gave him more money. The while thing is bizarre. If you don't want people in a very touristy area to use the toilets- just say so. Don't charge them and operate an aggressive toilet fee policy! What business are they in??? The manger was above and beyond rude. So unnecessary when you're business is in a prime tourist spot with a huge passing trade.
