We had high expectations of this restaurant, but were just a little bit disappointed. The head waiter seemed rather hostile at first, when we arrived for our dinner reservation about twenty minutes ahead of time, but warmed to us a little when we informed him...More

The menu offered verity of traditional French food. I tried for example snails and rabbit. The dishes were good put the potatoes in almost every dish were boring. Wine was tasty as well as the dessert chocolate charlotte. Service was good and prices reasonable.

Visited in July and it was a very rustic french restaurant with great service and lovely food. We had snails, bone marrow and steak tartare, all were great, please try this place.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards

Hello. They have a number of separate rooms and so I am sure a Private Dining experience could be organised however I do not know if they would do a buffet or a smaller set menu. Best to contact restaurant directly.
