This is one of those iconic Parisian restaurants that you have to experience once. I'm glad I did: the atmosphere and the service was exceptional throughout. But for the price, there are many restaurants with finer food. Not sure that I'd return.

Food was decent, pretty decor with interesting/antique decor. The owner, Pierre Cardin, was there when we dined there, which felt like a treat. Food was above average, but you don't expect much from a tourist destination. A pleasant experience, but have no inclination to return.

I went there with two friends as we wanted to try it. It is very old and the waiters are very posh. The decoration is also very old but the food is good and well cooked.

The dinner was fantastic but the food is very rich. I enjoyed every dish we ordered but found it way to heavy but this is a personal taste.
