Getting used to American restaurants made it a little difficult to eat at a place that was really hot. It had rained the previous day so the place was also steamy. We did notice air-conditioning units in every room but they were not turned on. We had to get by cracking open windows close to us.

The wine list was just (barely) okay.

We had beef (beuff) and rabit (lapin). Food was good and hearty. The portion sizes were really huge. It was so much that we asked for the rest "to go", but France does not have the culture of taking leftovers home, so they were initially confused but managed to get us a plastic container.

They understood English well enough.

Fantastic restaurant in a lovely part of Paris, Le Marais. Can highly recommend the snails, foie gras and boar although everything we had was really tasty. Great wine list for all budgets. I will definitely return when next in Paris.

Good address in the Marais, menu reliable (I had their originally presented escargots and an excellent lapin, good and fairly priced wine selection )

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.
