Unfortunately both food and service were terrible. The steak was too tough and chewy and pasta tasted like it was cooked long time ago. Very disappointed.

We sat down and ordered our food. The waiter was terribly impatient and after hesitating mid-sentence while ordering, he quickly said "I'll come back in a few minutes." After ordering, I looked over at the shelves in front of me and noticed it was covered with small, black droppings. I couldn't believe it. I asked my partner to move over... More

We visited this restaurant as it looks authentic and we're attracted by the 10 euro menu. The main waiter a French man wearing a beret is probably the rudest most unhelpful waiter I have ever come across. He communicates by grunting, refuses even the most reasonable requests such as butter for the stale table bread. And has a personal hygiene... More

Terrible place to eat. They say you get what you pay for, here it's true. Beef Bourgogne was like Dinty Moore canned stew with pasta. Steak and rest of meal were lukewarm at best. Salad was lettuce and corn, no dressing. Wait staff didn't care. Watched a tour group of about 25 go into the upper dining room, clearly the... More

We went here on our last day in Paris for lunch. We went for the very reasonable 3 courses for 16 euros deal, so we weren't expecting anything special. The food was average and the service was a little slow. I wouldn't be inclined to return, however if you want a quick traditional French lunch on the cheap it's not... More

Food just okay. Service poor at best. Felt rushed to order. Fruit flies galore made dining uncomfortable. Strange, but felt we were seated in back because we are Americans.

The specials menu is identical to other restaurants in the area but deviating from the specials will cost you dearly. We barely had a chance to glacé at the menu before the waiter was over to take our order and despite asking for another few minutes he did not move away and we rushed for not ordering our food. I...
