Our son, who was recently transferred by his employer to Paris, recommended Ave Maria. We met him there for dinner. The hostess was a delight. The food was excellent. The dessert made us wish we had eaten it first. I highly recommend it.

We went to this restaurant because it was just around the corner from our hotel, and it was a pleasant surprise. The staff was nice and helpful, they seemed to really like their work, which also made the atmosphere great. The food was something out of the ordinary, interesting spices, large portions and a reasonable price on top of that.... More

We came here because we have vegans/vegetarians in our group. Everyone was able to find something that suited their diet and everything was delicious. Big portions and very reasonable prices. We were able to dine and relax. We actually came here twice during our stay in Paris. Karine was our server both times and she was simply lovely!

Seating was communal and food was from around the world (former French colonies were the focus). And by Parisian standards, the price was affordable... More

Interesting neighborhood where the restaurant is located. Cocktails are reasonably priced. Perfect ambiance to catch up with friends even if we stayed inside (and not the al fresco area)
