This was possibly our best meal in Paris. The restaurant is quaint and charming with beautiful views of Notre Dame. Service was great and the food was wonderful. We would definitely dine here again.

Enjoyed a fabulous meal here last night, brilliant food, wine, ambiance, view and service. What a gem! Although we sat outside, they have a room upstairs with a big oval table for large parties. Will be returning!
