we booked based on gault&Millau when visiting. Food was ok, but it all went spectacularly fast, dinner was over in about an hour which was disappointing. We were not in a hurry. Luckily because after dessert we were paid no attention trying to get the bill for 30 min. Atmosphere not impressive. We do know our way around modern art... More

The restaurant is a very nice one, close to the river Seine (left bank) and very close to Notre Dame Nice and unexpected decoration, what you have in plate is simply delicious. We had smoked salmon as a starter and cod fish as main course, the fish melted in the mouth with an absolute delicious savor Definitely a place to... More

We were visiting Paris with my wife and son and looking for a small fine restaurant. We couldn't have picked a better one. The service was superb, well above the average in Paris. The manager made a point to make our experience a unique one. This is a small restaurant so make a reservation or otherwise you may loose your... More

It seemed that the restaurant was verry under staffed. We expected a lot more attentiveness from a restaurant in this price range. We did not get our water after having ordered it twise (we still got charged for it). It was hard getting the attention of the waiter, and at no point did anyone present the food, or even asked...

Nice restaurant. Waiter was extremely helpful and friendly. Food was very nice. Seems to be the "cool" place to be and the price reflects this.

As usual in Paris, tables are small and placed close by the others, but the dishes are creative, delicate and tasteful, deserving time to be fully enjoyed, specially accompanied by a good wine.

Great location and really fun decor but the food, while good was not awesome. Starters were solid, brandade was boring, Chicken excellent, bunny was ok. Service very uneven - they were fine when we got there but once it got busy, we struggled to get the bill, and were overcharged by 40 euros (which was fixed). And they kept on... More
