We picked up this restaurant because it looked nice enough and proposed traditional french cuisine. The disappointment was terrible. It is actually a chinese restaurant that claims offering specialities the cook just does not understand. The menu reads more than what you get in the plate and the ingredients are poor quality. Complaints are received aggressively.

We had be wandering around for a while, searching for restaurants and came across this one, not expecting much but we were hungry. We were very pleasantly surprised! It was very quaint in there, with lots of mirrors and comfy upholstery. We have soup to start, I had lamb for main and my husband had fish and I had a... More

We had not planned to visit this restaurant – it was just a last-minute impulse. We were welcomed very nicely, though we were surprised that the place was almost empty. The confit de canard was OK, but a little dry. Scallops were delicious. We were disappointed in the wine. The service was very good, because there was only one other... More

I was not inspired by anything on the menu and as we were tired and tired of loking around we decided to give this place a try. I ordered the onion soup which was very disappointing. The broth tasted a bit acidic like maybe they had used too much wine (or vinegar) in it, the croutons were dried up (too... More

It was Saturday night and we couldn't find a table at most restaurants. We wandered into this place which is near our apartment in St. Germain, we had beef Bourguinonge, confit de canard, gamba prawns, lamb chops, and an entrecôte. We liked the beef Bourguinonge, the confit de canard and the lamb chops. The prawns were grilled nicely but my... More

The quality was all over the place. Boeuf bourgignon was very good, but the portion slightly small. The confit de canard was about right, and fairly good but slightly soggy. Our poorest dish was a gambas on noodles which had a weird flavor. The management would do well to review their lineup (not very extensive anyway), and eliminate the dogs... More

Two couples visited during a Wednesday night to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The restaurant is small, but nicely decorated. We were seated immediately and the restaurant never was more than half full all evening. One server seemed to flawlessly handle all tables on a timely and friendly basis. The menu was subtitled in English and the Asian server spoke... More

We were looking for a more reasonably priced restaurant in the area. My experience, and that of my wife, suggests that the best food in Paris is not always the most expensive. We found this small, but friendly restaurant and were welcomed in without a reservation. All of our food, starters and mains arrived promptly and were delicious. With regards... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
