“Nice space with well prepared food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

This restaurant is slightly out of the way being a good walk from the metro but the food is well prepared and the staff are very friendly. Please note that it is rather meat centric and their signature dishes are various large cuts of meat.

“lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

I went with my family and my brother as he lives in Paris the meat was gorgeous but perhaps more vegetables were needed. the place was small and cosy and I think the prices were average for Paris.
We were made to feel very welcome and lots of regulars seemed to pop in too.

“Highly over rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Although this restaurant was recommended by a friend who had read about it in some travel magazine and had subsequently eaten there, I would not recommend it to anyone. Initially we were impressed with the cozy atmosphere, which quickly turned into a feeling of being a “sardine in a can” once all the tables were filled. The “Pan” in their name apparently does not relate to the cooking utensils, but rather how I would rate this establishment. Service was initially attentive, until all the “locals” arrived, and then it was hard to get the attention of the waiters. The menu was limited but looked enticing. That feeling ended with I looked at the table next to me (2 inches between tables, so you had to move table to get in and out of your seat) and saw a skinny little dog sitting on the lap of the person next to me with his (the dog’s, that is) paws on the table. At that point I was ready to leave, but we had already placed our order so we stayed. None of our 3 dinners were very tasty by any standard, so I don’t know how this place got any recognition in the media. With the thousands of restaurants in Paris, I would not return to this one.

“Great first dinner in Paris!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

My brother had found this restaurant on another website, and I'm so glad he booked it for us! We had a fantastic meal with fantastic wine and fantastic service (thank you, Arnaud!), even spotting 2 French movie stars dining while we were there. Though a bit tricky to find once you get off the Metro, it's worth the hunt!
