Decided for a traditional night out in Paris with my wife. The owner was just opening for the evening when we arrived and noted it would be a half an hour. We went and had cafe and returned. Amazing place, colorful decor! The owner and waiter was friendly and amazing. I speak French, but he speaks good English as well.... More

Amazing little restaurant that kept a typical french spirit. The food is simple, typical dishes, cooked perfectly and products are so fresh. The service is amazing, the waiter which is also the owner welcomes you warmly, he is available for you at all time, gives very nice suggestions. Highly recommended if you are looking for an amazing little french atmosphere.

We tried many places during our time in Paris, and nothing compared to this place. The food was INCREDIBLE, and the gentleman who waited on us (I think he might possibly be the owner?) was very friendly and helpful. From the minute we walked in and he figured we didn't speak much French, he switched straight to English. He helped... More

.. that, regrettably, has been discovered by foreigners like me. Thanks Tripadvisor! But you can ignore 'm, because the place has a very Parisian feel and even naturally loud Americans (I am one myself) feel compelled to talk at this wondrously low volume that Parisians have made into an art form. What helps is the location: a not-so-fashionable neighborhood with... More

Those movie scenes of Paris where a family gets to sit around and eat while conversing with the restaurant owner? Well, this was the experience that we got! It was absolutely amazing! Our food was excellent, there were five of us and we had the veal, the calamari, the chicken, and the duck. For dessert we had the fondu and... More

We have eaten here several times over the years; the departure of the old owners and arrival of the new is good news, as the food is better now than it was. This is a pleasant bistro just off the rue de Sevres, where there are few bargains to be had. The kitchen turns out good fish and beef: the... More

A small and friendly restaurant close to Vaneau metro station - here you will find a simple yet tasty menu, delicious French cooking and a warm and friendly welcome. All courses and wine were delicious and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Lovely family-run restaurant. The menu is limited, but every dish I tried was fantastic and that was the general consensus amongst my friends too! The staff are friendly and very kind. On our last visit, the young waiter who has been serving us disappeared for ten minutes and someone else brought out our desserts. We discovered that this was because... More
