I was on a tour in Paris so this restaurant was chosen for me. This is not the place to choose for the Paris experience. Restaurant is dirty. Food is okay. Service is slow. Staff is not very friendly.

Mixed feelings. Snails and wine very good, T-bone half delicious, half cardboard. Coffee disappointing. But the waiter was really nice and helpful.

If you like overdone steak and overcooked green beans that fall apart on the fork, this is a place you will enjoy. Otherwise, you can get a better steak almost anywhere else in Paris, except, probably, another Hippopotamus restaurant.

I didn't expect much of this chain restaurant and my low expectations have been met. I liked the Tzatziki Saumon as a starter. The rest of the meal was of very acceptable quality and reasonably priced.

We went to hippopotamus looking for a huge slice of prime beef. Sadly the beef was very small, undercooked and overpriced. The sides were plain with no creativity and the wine was very expensive considering the quality. Our order was forgotten for desert and no...More
