We went to this cafe for lunch in late June & returned for dinner on our last night in Paris. Worth booking for dinner, as it's pretty small. We were early for lunch so got a table on the terrace. really good people watching facing the little square. Seems to be a fairly local place; the waiter was charming and spoke very little english but our french was good enough to converse and read the french menu.

Fish rillettes were spectacular! My daughter had the mozzarella with almonds and eggplant and loved it so much she had it again the evening we returned. The menu is small and well considered; modern, simple french food, respecting ingredients and flavours without too much mucking about!

I had a very nice glass of rose with my lunch and 2 very good Kir's with my dinner.

Great convivial atmosphere and plenty of people stopping by for a glass of wine on their way home.

An adorable place across from a small square. We sat outside and enjoyed great service, delicious small plates (we got 3 that was enough for the two of us), and wine. The flavors were inspired making this one of the best meals we had.

We went with some local family friends who said this was their favorite place and we could see why! Great local wine selection and fresh food.

This lovely restaurant was recommended to me by a French friend, back at home in Fremantle. What a delicious meal & delightful place to enjoy our last evening in Paris.
We made a reservation ahead of time, probably a good idea as the place is fairly small.
The flavours of the dishes was excellent & we enjoyed a bottle of sparkling (not champagne!) with the name Mosquito!
The restaurant is only open Monday- Friday.
Can thoroughly recommend, especially as it is located near the University area (behind the Pantheon) a bit away from the main touristy areas which also adds to the appeal of this place.

It's awesome place but the service was rude and a little pretentious. We brought our toddler, who was really well behaved and they were less then happy about it.
