A jewel! Finding a restaurant like this is what makes a trip great. A creative menu, great service and cozy ambiance made this dinner a trip highlight.

Tiny restaurant that serves innovative dishes. Service was excellent. The menu is small but everything is great. Escargot was creatively prepared and especially delicious.

I have been coming to this place for over 15 years now. I stop at least once during each visit, with good reason. It is a small place just near the American Embassy, some swanky hotels and Place Vendome. It was recommended to me way...More

Ate there our first night in Paris as was right beside our hotel. Agree with the recent reviews - tables crowded together but we enjoyed talking to the other tourists. Staff were friendly and food was good. Would recommend.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

Laura, I gave this restaurant just an average rating, and said I probably would not return. It is adequate if you do not have high expectations. There are better restaurants in the area, just not open on Sunday. I would... More
