It's a nice French restaurant and can be easily missed. I would give it a 3.5. I ordered a shrimp entrée and the foie Gras. I enjoyed both- I would say slightly above average. The wine selection was good. The service is also good.

Our group of four chose this restaurant in our quest for a classic chocolate soufflé. The meal was delicious. It started with light and delicate fried shrimp accompanied by 2 great dipping sauces. Our party had the Chicken Supreme and a daily steak special both were very tasty and served with family style sides. The chocolate soufflé fit the bill... More

Came across this lovely place on our first night in Paris. We all had the set evening menu for 28 euro. Was not very busy, service was superb and made us feel welcome. Would recommend. Close to the Eiffel Tower too.

Nice restaurant away from the tourist route, small menu which I thought was limiting, the staff are not very knowledge able about their wine list which was surprising in France.

We ate here without reading any reviews but it was excellent. The menu was in French but they had another menu in semi-English. Nice sidewalk tables with overhead heaters for chilly nights. Husband had the duck with potatoes. I had ground beef with potatoes (like shepherd's pie). Both were delicious. Had an apple torte for dessert. We might go back... More

We visited for a dinner with colleagues March 4th 2015 and everything was very nice. Terrine was meaty and authentic and duck also cooked well. The rest of the team seemed happy with their selections as well. Also suitable for a romantic dinner as the atmosphere is intimate and service very friendly. Menu is a choice of starter, main and...
