Haven't tried it for lunch or dinner, but love the breakfast. You get a whole set of orange juice (pressed), hot drink, omelette, tartine and croissant for 11.90 and it's delicious! The staff is friendly like family, place always populated by locals sitting inside and out

We had a quick meal here on our first night in Paris. Very friendly service and good food. Had the escargots, duck confit and creme brûlée. They were all well prepared and delicious .

We were able to get in without a reservation as we were looking for something last minute for dinner. The food was excellent and the server was very accommodating for us in English. We had a perch and salmon special, with chocolate cake for dessert. Delicious! Would definitely go back!

We ate here almost daily (2x daily) for each stay in Paris. Our favorite waiter is Olivier. He was attentive, courteous and helpful. The food is local, classic and reasonably priced. Try the duck confit!!

I decided to stop here for lunch, knowing nothing about this bistro. The service was perfect. The starter (beetroot with fresh cheese) was rather bland, but the main dish (dos de lapin/ rabbit back en Chablis) delicious. Good value for money.

Nothing special about the meal apart from it being very reasonably priced and enjoyable bistro type food.. The wine list was average and the service was friendly.
