I had tried on two previous occasions to eat in this popular small restaurant in the Marais but had been thwarted both times because I had not made a reservation. This time, I made sure by reserving a table for 7pm when the restaurant opened in the evening. I arrived with a few minutes to spare to discover a queue forming outside on the pavement. I had a generous portion of mushroom pâté to start with, which was OK but nothing special, followed by a tasty hazelnut dish with roast potatoes. My fromage blanc with cinnamon was a bit disappointing. I don’t know if it was the early hour, or the fact that this is a vegetarian restaurant in Paris, but all of the diners, and the restaurant was full, were either British or American.

This cafe' is rather small and its interior not particularly inspiring. The plastic ivy on the wall does not help. If you are looking for romantic atmosphere, go elsewhere. This is more like a dated canteen. The service is attentive and warm. The choice of food is impressive for a veggie restaurant with lots of desserts too. However the food is more attractive on paper than on a plate. Nothing intrinsically wrong, just incredibly boring bordering on the tasteless. If you are vegetarian or vegan, you might put up with it only due to lack of vegetarian places in Paris.

Squeezed into this tiny vegetarian restaurant in rue Rambuteau in the Marais. Tables are very close together. Very good menu choices. I had the french onion soup but it defeated me - far too much bread and too little onion. In fact, wherever we tried this soup it was always full of soggy bread. I make this at home and know the ratio of onions to bread and can tell you that it's a lot of onions to a little piece of bread. I can't remember what husband ordered but I know it was a bit too spicy for him to finish.
However, their salads are a standout, and if you're low on your intake of fresh veges, then this is the place to go.
Very friendly and efficient service.
