Went on a Friday when they only have smaller plates more tapas-like. Doesnt matter, the food is delicious and its so genuin. Welcoming to both tourists and locals. Have been One more time since then and it was as good then too. If you're staying near jardin Luxembourg, don't miss this place! It's worth a visit.

This place was already starting to fill up at noon on a Monday, and was buzzing by the time we left. It does what it does extremely well; a small but comprehensive menu offering a decent variety of French dishes, all given a slight modern twist. My husband's terrine and roti de veau were delicious, as were the gazpacho and saucisson rôti with white peas that I ordered. We were having such a good time that we each ordered a portion of the cherry clafoutis for pudding - excellent.
We shared a carafe of côte du Rhône which was really good (I'm normally a bit dubious about "natural wines", having had a few bad examples.). Service was perfectly amiable, if ever so slightly hipster. As our hotel was just around the corner, this was a real find, and we'd definitely eat there again - it's as far from being a Parisian Tourist Trap as you could hope. Bear in mind that it's only open during the week, but do seek it out.

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.
