The place is very funny and lively. The food was very good, a lot of food and free wine. The ambience makes you feel like the old times. I highly recommend

We stopped for lunch at this little restaurant built on the site of a drawbridge from the 1600's. Some of the original bridge construction still there. Met the star of the Amazon Prime series, Patriot, having lunch next to us. He couldn't have been nicer!!...More

We visited this place by our friends' recommendation, otherwise it would be very hard to spot it, as outside the entrance does not immediately catch your eye. As you walk in you think it's a tiny bar, but after you go through a small corridor,...More

We went there for dinner and asked for a quiet table. For whatever reason, the waiter found that this was a fun request of ours. Not being taken seriously by the staff gives you a already a bad first. Although the staff was not very...More

Probably not a great place for lunch. This place seems to be much more geared up for evenings as there is a huge room behind the front restaurant area. There was no menu for lunch just a choice of chicken and chips, duck and chips...More

Love this place. We always make time to go here when we visit Paris. I don’t understand the bad reviews on here. Yes, the barrel wine might not be the best quality but you have to be realistic – it’s unlimited! Paris is expensive wherever...More

Lovely old building with lots of interesting rooms. Food was OK. Could have been a fun 'old France' experience but the waiters ruined it. All very serious which was ironic given their comical Gaulois dress! We also saw one of them complaining to customers in...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

When you step into this timeless venue, you will discover a festive restaurant straight out of a storybook and the imaginary world of Asterix. The success of the well-known concept is based on a simple, but effective idea: long rows of tables, mixed salads, grills and wine served from the barrel, all in gigantic quantities. Also worth mentioning is the outstanding welcome which contributes to the friendly atmosphere. Dinner menu : 40€ Lunch menu : 14€
