Visited with family a Sunday night. Reasonable for the price we paid. Good service. I would recommend for a simple meal but dont expect more and you won't be disappointed.

Good selection for those with small children as well as appropriate menu for adults. Food was reasonably priced and quite tasty. Seafood, steak, salad etc. Service was good and obviously know what children like - activity sheet provided. Would return with kids.

The personnel was kind but they weren't checking constantly our table. I like the menu which is in English so you can check it better if you don't dominate French as well they have it in more languages on the internet. The location was perfect...More

I ate here alone on a Sunday evening, I was seated quickly and the staff were polite, that's the only positive. There is very limited vegetarian options on the menu (2 starters) the goats cheese and vegetable tempura, they were both really quite horrible. The...More

Close to our hotel, Renaissance Arc de Triomphe. Food we had was average. Service was a bit slow but at least they were nice and spoke English. Lots of selection. Menu had photos so it was like eating at TGIF or Chili's (in the US)....More

I was on a tour in Paris so this restaurant was chosen for me. This is not the place to choose for the Paris experience. Restaurant is dirty. Food is okay. Service is slow. Staff is not very friendly.

Mixed feelings. Snails and wine very good, T-bone half delicious, half cardboard. Coffee disappointing. But the waiter was really nice and helpful.
