One of my favorite restaurants in Paris, Plates are huge as well as the prices. I always order one Fois gras for two, the veal with cream for two people, if you are still hungry, order the snails. This is a true french restaurant.

Friends had recommended this small restaurant, but we did not have many expectations. To our delight, the food was very good, even though prices were quite steep. But now day, nothing in Paris is cheap. We had an excellent burger, tender duck, and some very...More

A fine atmosphere with excellent wine list and desserts. Main courses (chicken roti and duck with olive sauce) were only average.

It is just no longer of this time. Unfriendly and uninterested waiters (don't expect them to pour your wine or water even for a 500 euro bottle). Cold duck confit, little taste no condiments whatsoever. The escargots, big and mighty, ok. Cote a l'os a...More

it's really good French! The price level is around e40up/plate. The wine is from e70up/bottle. But The food is big volume!everybody choose the escargot! 凄く雰囲気のいいレストランで開店19:30に行きましたがすぐに満席状態になりました。 価格帯はスターターも含め40ユーロからで高めですが量が非常に多いです。 私達はエスカルゴをシェアしポーククリーム連れは鳩?の姿焼きを一つづつ頼み三人でシェアしましたが残してしまいました。エスカルゴは皆さん頼んでました。 他には96ユーロのでかいステーキを頼み皆でシェアしてる人が多かったです。 ワインは安いものでボトル70ユーロからメチャクチャ高いものまで揃ってます。ハーフボトル40ユーロからもあるのでたくさん飲まない人はこちらがいいですね。 私達は上記にワインボトル90ハーフボトル40を頼み280ユーロほどでした。 美味しかったですがお腹いっぱいでした。

I wish I could think of something good to say. Service was indifferent to rude. Prices were extortionate and those on the menu higher than those posted on the internet site of the restaurant. The place was packed with foreigners, which might have been a...More
