Reduction offer The Fork: The discount was applied only to the à la carte dishes; this was useless because the restaurant was already offering a full menu granted with around 30% discounted.

This place is simply superb. Always good service, excellent cuisine and good value. Just off the tourist map too so you can feel like a local. Highly recommended. If I lived in Paris I would eat here once a week.

We have dined here several times and always enjoyed it. The food is excellent. However, the service on this date was abysmal. People who arrived a half-hour after us and had the same number of courses were eating their main courses (and even the same menu item: dorade) while we were still waiting for our food. We finally asked about our food, and both times we asked, the servers were unresponsive. When we left and voiced our complaint, they said that the kitchen was backed up! Really? Backed up only for us, not for anyone else...We are rethinking whether we will be recommending this restaurant to anyone else. Good food cannot offset such poor service.

The quality of the food was very good particularly the main course and the desert. Very good flavours.

The wine list although small was good and the wine chosen excellent.

It's my favorite restaurant in Paris after 30 years of long stays in the city. Unfortunately it's not in the most picturesque area, what with the Jussieu building in front of it but everything else is perfect from the creative cuisine, to the bistro ambiance and the charming staff.
We keep going back to celebrate birthdays, to take people out or just to have a good meal in the family.

Low key and very nice vibe. We were among the only non French speakers and got excellent treatment. Not haute cuisine but also not standard bistro care. Happy medium in between. A great meal and value for the price. Lovely experience.

Easily our favorite meal in Paris. Casual and cozy atmosphere coupled with cuisine that was inventive and exceptionally well-executed without being precious or formal. Service was attentive and genuinely warm.
