    Finally, some delicious food! Try it, come back and then try it again. A simple menu for those who appreciate dishes that have rich flavor profiles. Honest food that's elevated to perfection.

    Excellent authentic Parisian bistro. Great atmosphere tucked away in a narrow street with lots of other bars nearby. The rabbit terrine was lovely and the e Trevor for two was perfect. Strong recommendation as thanks for the advice with the menu.

    This little bistro is tucked away down a beautiful, quiet alleyway. The waiters were super friendly and service was efficient. You can tell the cook loves simple, fresh ingredients and presentation of the dish is important. The food we ordered was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend the entrecôte and the cheese selection.

    The best meal we had in Paris. We speak some French, although limited, but were made to feel incredibly welcome and the food was amazing.

    Absolutely special. We were a party of ten (family and friends), and everyone loved it. The food was prepared with passion, combinations were unique and most importantly, delicious! Keep up your good work. On our next visit to Paris, we'll definitely return.

    Extremely nice people serving the meals. Limited menu, just 2 starters, 3 main courses and 2 desserts but good quality and reasonable prices. To be recommended

    Very nice, cosy place in a side road in the Marais district. We had the veal steak and lamb for main course. The food was so good that we decided to dine there again on the following day. Also very friendly service. Highly recommendable! We will be back on our next Paris trip.

    The food was really good. The ingredients were fresh and it was a perfect mix of flavors in a plate. The dessert was awesome too.

    We were in Europe for 4 weeks and this by far was the standout meal, two families with 6 teenage kids. The chef even made a special meal for my youngest son. Thanks so much for your hospitality, highly recommend this restaurant for everyone looking for outstanding french cuisine in a cute little lane.
