If you are luck enough (or a good tipper) then you will get a seat on the terrace - that is were the ambiance is. The food is very good - steamed salmon was exceptional. Also a very good selection of wines. All accompanied by hostesses in skimpy dresses 😁 This is one of the 'in' places to dine in... More

All the well to do end up in this place. It's a great place to check out fashion, good looking people. Great oysters fresh and juicy. The service is professional and the waiters are a bit arrogant ( it's needed to be Parisian... lol) I don't have a problem with that as French we learn to raise above that and... More

In this restaurant there is no menu in English! Very sloppy and uncomfortable. Staff said that this is the desire of the owner. In general, spoiled the evening in Paris! Owner is a 'great fellow' !!!

The food we had was good, but does not justify the prices. You're basically paying for the name, setting and entourage. I had good foie gras, great steak tartare and finished it off with a creme brulée and all were good.

I was there with my daughter as a treat. We sat outside under the canopy and the heating lamps. The temperature was perfect. The food was delicious. My daughter took the pasta with lobster, I the crispy duck. If you are very hungry only a main course will probably not be enough. So the portions could be a bit bigger.... More

The atmosphere is particular and everything looks on point. Even tho the service is plain and distant, the food comes fast. The dishes we ordered were amazing. And save some space for the Pavlova. A good experience if you wanna get spoiled with a fancy dinner. Cocktails are good as well!

Great atmosphere and feeling. Good food. Place were everything is happening. Bad side is that waitresses looks like old hookers with bad attitude. Can't compare to L'Avenue. But other wise everything was exelent.
