“Oh no!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

We are regular customers of their next door neighbour the Sister's Cafe which is closed in the evening but we love the area so we decided to try it since the menu looked good.
But after being given a table for two even if there were three of us (yes!), after being given the special board of the daily specials (out of which something like 3 out of 5 were sold out) we finally placed our order.
We waited probably almost 45 minutes for a gazpacho, a salad and an anchoiade ( a famous french dish made with raw vegetables and a special anchovies sauce) which happened to be just raw vegetables with tzatziki and tarama.
When we asked the waiter about the anchoiade he replied here is your dish of raw vegetable even if the menu stated anchoiade!
I guess this is just a tourist trap so just don't go there and keep visiting the sister's cafe which we did the next day for lunch!
And with no surprise at lunch time their neighbour is Full with maybe 60 guests when this marche saint Roch had just 4 or 5 customers.

“Food ok, but poor service”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

We had lunch with our family, the food was ok but waiting times were long and we did not ate together. In the end they forgot to bring dessert for the kids. They simply could not follow.

“Great Pad Thai”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Had dinner here on a beautiful summer evening. The seating is in a pretty courtyard with no auto traffic. I had the shrimp pad thai, which was delicious. Staff were friendly and spoke English. Nice selection of wines.

“A nice shell can hide a rotten egg...”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We entered this restaurant that looks the part, well located and offers a refreshing menu of spanish inspired food. As we entered we must have broken the shell.... Asked the waiter for a table of three: snerring back: find a place yourself. Then found a slightly dirty table were we waited for 15 mins before one of the 5 serving staff (who were hanging out to the loungy vibes) realised that we were waiting. We did not risk having a look at the printed menu and ordered right away from the sign outside. The food for the adults arrived in good time however we had to wait for the childrens food (which is the best we have experienced in france (poor chef)) however the lounge lizzards (waiters) had forgotten to bring it to the table and after asking for it we got it cold... That was followed by the desert (we had to ask for) that was slammed on the table with a very uncool casual silence and arrogance. (We live in Paris so we do know what french waiters can be like).

I hope the owner reads this, rooting out the rotten eggs as the place, food and deco is great.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Great lunch experience, outside at the terrace, with the nice people working there and the inventive menu.
We had great sandwiches with the home made olive fougasse.
Only a pity that the final was a bit spoiled as they completely forgot us, and we hade to ask for our already ordered dessert many times, even after having paid inside.
