This is located on a small island, there is a free boat taking you to the island to visit the restaurant - club. Very nice meals, vibrant atmosphere, very popular among young people. Also suitable for Company events/ Gala dinner.

The service was awful, grumpy waitress and long wait (40mns) to be seated and average overpriced food. Would not recommend, the staff was also very rude and made comments when we asked for the 3rd time if we could have our bill (took them 25mns). We went for 10:00pm as advised by the hostess.

We come here winter to summer. Personally i haven't eaten here yet but the drinks are good. It can be very busy so waiting is a must.

Service is good, the price/quality of the food is okay nut not very special. However, the location is just amazing. In March we enjoyed it, but it must be lovely to visit with warmer weather: to be able to sit outside and to enjoy the view etc. Definitely we will come back.

A breathtakingly beautiful chalet, set in Parisian parkland, accessible by a boat across the lake which gives it all the more charm. With an aesthetic of an old mountain ski lodge this brunch topped our romantic spot hit list in Paris. The brunch caters for every taste, with a BBQ outside and funky soundtrack inside, I shall be returning here... More

I'm loathe to rate this place as my concern is that it would become too busy in the future. Fantastic food and the setting is unrivalled in Paris. In one word: "special".

We booked to have Xmas meal here in October and received a personalized email confirming the booking for 19.30 Christmas Eve. We turned up by taxi to this rather remote location and stood on the jetty looking over onto the lit restaurant and the jetty with boat on the other side of the lake in faint lamp light. After 15...

this is a beautiful chalet located on an island in the bois de boulogne, 5 mintues from the Tour Eiffel. You have to take a small boat to cross. The food is typically french with an exotic touch. The view of the lake is amazing. You will appreciate the terraces during summer and the authentic cheminee during winter.The restaurant and all the terraces will be renovated this winter.It will be closed from the 20 th of october 2012 to march 2013.
