Good food, good drinks and good service. The downside - you can feel the smoke even in parts of the non-smoking zone, because people smoke so close to the glass seperating the sides. A chiq place, anyways.

Popped in here today for a couple of coffees Ended up have some yummy chips and smoked salmon sandwiches which were delicious. Very much needed. The staff were very helpful and friendly and their English is much better than my French. Would come here again.

I usually dine with a friend at a cafe nearby this restaurant and this evening my partner and I watched two servers beat, punch, and push an immigrant woman on the street. This is like the Fifth Avenue of New York. We called the police twice. Never go here. They abuse women.

We stopped here hoping to have dinner but the menu is very limited and only stayed to have a drink. The outside patio was very busy with every available table and seat taken so we opted for an inside table. Unfortunately just about everyone sitting outside were smoking and there was no escape from the smoke even though we were... More

My wife and I visited this spot during our stay in Paris. It had a local feel and the waiter was very hospitable and friendly (hence the pic he took with our phone). The food was good but we really liked the atmosphere.

Stopped here on our first trip into Paris bc it was close to our hotel and metro stop. Excellent service--helpful with our poor excuse for french, and nice bathrooms. Was nice to have a great place so close to our hotel.

Attracted by the art deco lights of this bistro near the Eiffel Tower, we had an early lunch of onion soup, sardine rillettes, fresh haddock with vegetables and salad Toscane (prosciutto and mozzarella di bufala). The pleasant staff switched to English when they noticed our weak French, and gave good advice on the short, but interesting wine list. Onion soup... More

Main restaurant room is full of cigarette smoke, as the smoker's terrasse is completely sealed. Awful experience.

We ate here at New Year's Eve - it was exceptionally busy but meals came our fairly quickly, seating was a bit cramped and hard to move around much, but service was generally good (drinks were slow) and the food was nice!

Situated a stone's throw from a Metro station this place exudes Parisienne authenticity. The food is straightforward & simple but is well cooked & presented. My steak was excellent. There is a reasonably choice of wines, which we sampled extensively with the guidance of the skilled and capable waiting staff. Fabulous! This bistro is mainly frequented by locals and the... More
