This was by far the worst restaurant experience I've had in my entire life. First and foremost, the food was inedible. Impossible to chew. We ordered a seared tuna and a duck dish (the owner told us it was all he had left for the night so they were our only choices). The so called duck was BEEF. We couldn't... More

So accomodating to our 2 children. We had a standard breakfast which was nice enough and 2 bacon and egg breakfasts. They gave us extra bacon and extra croissants

Moderate prices. What would you expect more. We had a good time. The service was quick and correct. The beer was cold. Would go again if nearby.

Both the salmon and steak tartare were delicious. Staff was friendly and atmosphere was nice. Good view as well. Worth the visit.

It made me sad to know that I stayed in an apartment just down the street and only discovered this wonderful cafe and the end of my week in Paris! A friend invited us to eat and chose this place, and it was the quintessential Parisian Cafe experience, in my opinion. We were given a table inside, near a window,... More

If I was the Charolais Marketing Board (if there is such a body), I would either a) ban these people from using the name, or b) stop supplying them, or c) make sure someone there knows how to select and cook beef. Charolais is a world renown beef breed, of which France can be justifiably proud. I was served an... More

We came across this place by chance, wanting to try the escargot. The place was filled with locals. The lighting is soft, with red and burgundy colour themes, creating an intimate atmosphere with a buzzing vibe. The wait staff were energetic, attentive and entertaining, with our waiter sliding along the floor from table to table with seemingly boundless energy. The... More

We ate here quite ok steaks for late lunch. The place is cosy, but the food only "ok", even though the prices are quite high.

I loved this place. It is a neighborhood cafe and filled with regulars. The food was very good, and the staff were lovely. We were in the area to visit the Piaf museum and felt lucky to land in this funky little cafe for lunch.
