    Great little place. Very authentic and cozy. We stopped by for lunch from a recommendation from a 30 something bank exec and said almost everything on the street there is great and where the locals go. We had terrific service from our waiter who knew Italian French and some English. The Escargot was incredible and just the right amount of sauce in the pan to mop it up with delicious bread. The beef Bourgogne was just perfect. Tender, moist and very flavorful. It had Just the right amount of salt. The profiteroles for dessert were just right. 1 order was plenty for the 3 of us to share. We decided to come back the next day after having a not so great meal elsewhere. We were greeted with big smiles the 2nd time and offered a glass of wine on the house during dinner. We ordered the same dishes and enjoyed them again. The staff was delightful and kept their distance as they allowed us to relax. We were there almost 2 hours. I would recommend to anyone!

    Quality of food was just average and disappointing for our last night in Paris.

    I have eaten here on several occasions and in the past it has been a very pleasant experience. However though the food was satisfactory the service was appalling as the waiter was disinterested and bordering on rude. It is the first time ever that I haven’t left a tip in a French restaurant.

    Outstanding! I live in Germany and had the pleasure of bringing my parents, uncle and brother there last night! By far the best meal during our trip so far!

    Excellent set menu choices, delicious French food and at a very reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was comfortable, not too busy but with a good atmosphere.

    We really enjoyed this place. There is a good variety of food on the menu and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. We were there on a Friday evening at 8pm and there was plenty of seating available for walk ins. I would recommend giving this place a try if you are in the area.

    Saw Le Volcan on a previous visit to Paris and decided to return on a very hot evening for some moules in August 2018. We were not disappointed. The food was really good (best tasting moules I've ever had - according to my wife) and everything added up to a really enjoyable and very reasonably priced meal. Wine by the caraffe, marvellous deserts - would recommend the cafe gourmand - and very friendly and helpful service. We've put it on our 'must go again' list, and not many restaurants get on to that!

    Did not honour the 20% discount offered on tripadvisor/la fourchette. When asked why said it only applied to meals of two courses and we had only had mains. Having checked afterwards, it doesn't say this anywhere.

    Lovely place with very friendly staff. The trip advisor page says vegan options available but there was only a pretty average salad so be warned. My partner had the mussels which she said were very good.
