I booked a table based on the reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Great food, we tried snails for the first time and they were excellent. Staff were also very friendly, attentive and spoke good english. We had a lovely time.

We were staying nearby and strolled in for dinner and were completely impressed. I had the confit beef cheek...sooo tender. My wife had the homemade duck confit and was blown away. I wanted to go on the street and wave people in.

Nice food, relaxed atmosphere - very Parisienne. The gratis dauphinois that goes with the steak could be a dish in itself: very nice, soft and tasty, with lots of garlic. The cafe gourmand is a good idea!

came across this little gem a number of years ago when we were honeymooning in a hotel around the corner and we return on our every visit to paris; a lovely little bistro which serves the perfect steak and good red wine at a reasonable price. aye, simple pleasures are often the best. a word, too, about the staff who...

Enjoyed our dinner meal at this reasonably priced neighborhood restaurant. We met lots of Parisians here, they were super friendly and we had a moderately priced yummy meal. I would recommend La Vache!

Located in the backstreets of bastille this restaurant was a great find..thanks the trip advisor! This is a small venue full of locals so it's a good idea to book. The food was well priced and excellent and the waiter extremely helpful and friendly. It was a really great night!

For its price bracket, good. Burger was decent but patty not moist enough and my brioche bun fell apart too easily. The foie gras was good. The marrow was ok. The star of the night was the beef cheek. Overall excellent recommendation as family enjoyed it.
