We've been living in Paris for 8 months, and wish we had found this place sooner! The owner was very welcoming and helpful (even took one of us into the kitchen, to show us what the chef was making). We asked him for suggestions, and ended-up with lovely plates of sausages, charcuterie, roasted peppers, a slice of potato tortilla, and... More

My husband and I stopped in here during our visit to Paris for a late dinner (10:00PM). The food was so good and fresh. Sangria was amazing, and a steal for the amount! The owner helped us pick out our food, took us back to the kitchen to show us our options, and was so helpful all night. Unfortunately, we... More

We felt like family immediately. The manager/owner helped us select our meal based on what our preferences were. The food was a perfect selection and extremely fresh and tasty. By the end of the night we were taking pictures of us with him and giving hugs goodbye. I know most people want French food in Paris, but this place is... More

If you happen to be looking for a tapas (Basque) restaurant, which has great food, local atmosphere and small and inviting this is your place. We have eaten here twice and both times had a the Chipirons al la Plancha, they are fabulous. The Poivrons, either stuffed or plain are yummy. The Anchois and Scampi were also fantastic.

My wife and I spent a month touring 14 different countries in Europe. In all of that time, this was hands-down the best restaurant we went to. It was a small place, and we made reservations.

Amazing delicious food including a range of seafood, jamon iberico, patatas and many other options. Authentic Spanish wines and sangria. Patrice is a wonderful and warm host. We couldn't have enjoyed more and recommend highly.

Discovered the delights of this place on a recent family visit to Paris. Great staff and even better food: the chorizo was amazing, the Basque meatballs were a firm favorite with the kids... but for us the cockles were the highlight of the evening. We will be back!
