Absolutely amazing! We do not speak French and they helped us with the menu and recommend fabulous options. We had wonderful time and were very impressed with the food and wine. I cannot say enough about this place! Absolutely loved it!

Love this restaurant! Very traditional French dishes prepared with flair. Our waiter was very friendly and provided great service. The rabbit preparation wa the best I've tasted.

The inside was very pretty and the mood was nice. I looked at pictures of food online and they did not serve them anymore. That was disappointing because it was the main reason we came, it looked very unique and original. We had a decent steak and a very yummy Cheescake for dessert. Overall we had a very nice experience for our first time.

The entrecote was very tuff, grisly. I expected a better cut of meat. The desert was perfect. The wine was good. I enjoyed the service.

Have been to less expensive places with more interesting food. A lot of tourists plats. Not a bad restaurant but expected more.

My only comment would be that the tables are too close to each other... so to get in and get out you almost need to ask the table on the side to stop eating so you can sit. And btw, I am not big. :-)

I loved the ambiance. The old stone wall with high ceilings and the wooden beams on the ceiling made it feel very French. I brought some friends from Canada and they loved the evening. There was a very good choice of meals on the menu.

The wait between courses was a little longer than I would expect but after praising the food which was excellent the manager expressed huge relief. The restaurant had been robbed the night before and having spent all night with the police, the manager was late to open for Sunday lunch. Mathieu, the manager told us that everyone in the restaurant was out of sorts following the robbery and he apologised. He needn't have. The food was excellent and I loved the idea of having a range of wines at a set price - 10 wines at Euro25, 10 at 35, 10 at 50 etc.
It is a tiny restaurant but was warm and welcoming on a very cold Sunday in January. We will be back

Best service we received in our 5 days in Paris. Had the New Years Eve shared menu - appetizers and desserts were quite good, but the main courses (scallops and beef) were average.

I ate here several years ago. The quality of the food has gone down hill! The food was Luke warm. The rabbit was the house speciality and tasted very sour. The fish was warm to cold and bloody. The potatoes stuffed I the fish were raw. The best part of the meal was the vegetables in the fish as they were hot and cooked. I would not recommend this restaurant.
