We ordered french onion soup, mexicane salad, and french fries. No where was open on sunday so we decided to give it a try.

Overall,
Worst food. How can a salad and a soup go this wrong? I did not expect great food from the very beginning but this was just a nightmare.

Worst service.
When i called the server to told him that the onion soup was bitter and tasted like it was seriously rotten. And the chicken breast on the salad smelled really bad i had to spit it out. The tomato was not even close to fresh. And the server kept saying "this is frech soup" and he began talking in french.

This is my worst meal in whole wide world not only in Paris.

the food here was ok.

The tables are very close togetther, and to be honest a lot of people were complaining, 2 tables walked out. and one table sent there food back.

Our food was ok, but you carnt go wrong with pizza and a burger.

Firstly, be prepared to wait. And wait. Each time we tried to get attention it took far too long. There were several tables crowded too close together also trying to do the same thing. Starters were served quickly and overall the food was good value for money. Our complaint was that the bavette was burnt and the accompanying shallot sauce far too salty to be enjoyable, not that we were asked how our meal was. This restaurant certainly needs more waiters and for those to be supplied with deodorant. It's incredibly off-putting to be eating with that stench hanging in the air. Do avoid this if you can.

It was full on arrival with locals good we though. But then given a table right at the back and then left for 45 min today ignored could not even get a drink. once the order was taken the food was quickly served and good quality but the plates were clean before we had all finished, service was very poor. We advice go somewhere else.

Have been here a few times the most recent experience was ok but I expect more fom Paris. It starts with the tables being jammed in tight, which is good because there is always space but not a relaxing start to a meal.
The chop platter comes on a wooden board and is a huge chunk of meat. If you like big chunks this is probably your place. But for me quality French cuisine beats quantity any day
I was also disappointed by the wine.
