We first went here to join friends who had discovered this little gem of a restaurant earlier in their stay nearby in Place d'Italie. It was a lively Saturday night and the restaurant was full yet the two waitresses were cheerful and helpful. The €14 menu had many interesting choices and even with wine and soft drinks for my son & me it was under €40. My son decided to make his debut with the escargots and was pleasantly surprised. We both chose from the main €14 menu and were satisfied with our meals.
Two days later the two of us returned on a less lively yet reasonably busy night to try out other dishes on the same menu. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with choices and our meals were served promptly and hot. On this occasion I chose the dish of the day on the €14 menu and was glad I had chosen the paupiettes de dinde though my son's choice of salmon looked equally enticing.
On the last evening of our stay, when frankly we were too tired to trek back into the centre of Paris to seek out a different restaurant, we decided to stick with what we felt we could rely on. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted like friends and offered complimentary drinks while we chose again from the €14 menu - a lovely touch as it appeared they had remembered what we had drunk there on an earlier visit. Again the food was delicious with decent size portions and we both chose the dish of the day which was chicken. We were not disappointed with our meals and especially enjoyed the recommended wine. Even with coffee our meal for two did not exceed €40 which for Paris seems extremely good value for 3 courses with wine and coffee.
Despite some of the earlier reviews on Trip Advisor (which I had not read before visiting Epsilon) I write as I found it on 3 different evenings and can only say that it was excellent, friendly and good value. For anyone staying in this locality of Paris it is definitely worth paying a visit. I guess we will need to revisit this spot to check out the €19 menu!
