A great cafe/bistro alternative to the more expensive restaurants in Trocadero. Experience a true French cafe with beautiful food at reasonable prices. I had the signature prawn dish which was excellent!

famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
