You will find many French standards here, all cooked well, and in a very comfortable setting. Great for a lunch if you are in the 15th!

This is an over pretentious place in terms of décor and menu, run by a “Maître restaurateur”. Ultra-small tables and very tight spaces for the big chairs installed. The food was below average. However, we had a real issue with the coffee ice-cream which was served containing ice crystals and ice water blocks (the size of a tea spoon) giving... More

Stopped in here for a late diner. Our apartment was near by Nice atmosphere. Service was quick and friendly. The meals far exceeded my expectations. The salads were delicious and generous in size. The bruschetta far exceeded anything one would get in North America. A great little place for lunch or dinner.

This place could be very nice if the owner was'nt so grumpy and if he could take an observation like an adult. unfortunately he does not and can be pretty mean when told what we did not like or what can be changed or done better.The food is either great, either bad, so is the service. Not so much for... More

Came here on a recommendation from hotel - it's an informal atmosphere. Extremely relaxed and welcoming with family members hanging out (big and small). Excellent selection of specials ranging from the traditional French to slightly Italian or Moroccan twist. The manager explained the specials board with great gusto - in French - and then we got out our phones to... More

The food is amazing, the wine is excellent, and the service is truly five stars. We had fish, beef, and desert and everything was excellent.

I returned to this place after a long time and found their food not good enough. All my colleagues were of the same advice. I was raving for their stake with the burning thyme and it was really a let down. Will not go back soon....

I arrived in Paris late on a Friday evening and after checking into my hotel was keen to find somewhere decent to eat. This little eaterie was close to my hotel and was still serving food at 10.30 pm on a Friday evening. The welcome was warm, the service was great and the food was really nice. We shared a... More

I live nearby and often good there for a drink or the dinner. Food is good and is "maitre restaurateur" labeled which means good quality and not industrial. Service is OK and good music. A "Demi" is around 2,50 during happy hours. Good one.

Was there for a dinner. Located in an old building with lot of wood decoration. Bit cold sitting close to the glass wall. Very friendly staff. Excellet entrecote with Thym. Brilliant Creme Brulee. Will like to return to there.
