A group of 10 called in here one evening without booking in advance. The waiter was fantastic accommodating us and being patient with our limited French. The food was good quality for its cost with us ordering a range of starters and mains. Although I...More

At first we weren't to keen on going there because of the reviews, but we were very tiered so we just stayed there. A lot of people complain about the service, but it was great for us. We were 5 and we all had menus,...More

Positives: Children's menu, which is rare in Paris, and colouring etc to keep them happy. Good portions for kids too. Negatives: Adults had €20 set menu with rather limited choice and the food was fairly dull. Service rather typically grumpy. Disappointing.

Had lunch with a friend there. Food was nice but we received very slow service. Waiter took forever to give us the menus. We waited a while for her to come back and get our orders. Appart from that food was nice
