Service was good and the food better yet. The children's menu is real food as opposed to the standardized trash you're usually offered. Our meal was excellent and it was bound to be, seeing the number of Korean clients. A great family meal.

Matsuba combines Japanese and Korean cuisines and does it well. You won't be able to tell what's Japanese and what's Korean but it all tastes great. The barbecue meat could be better but so far everything served is flavorful. Even their unique take on miso...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime

cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
