Situated close to the Étoile on the east corner of the Avenue MacMahon and the Rue de Tilsit, this bistro has a warm, pleasant atmosphere with an efficient staff, who are very willing to practice their English. The range of drinks, including many wines by the glass, is excellent, served with olives and peanuts or popcorn. Since this is a... More

We enjoyed a lovely two course meal here. As an English couple we were greeted very by a very friendly waiter who showed us to our table and then served us. We had a spinach ravioli and a duck with sweet potato mash for our main course. Both meals were delicious. We then had a chocolate cake and a creme... More

Eating breakfast in sight of the Arc de Triomphe at a reasonable price is what its all about!!! There is a choice of set breakfasts or you can... More

Great location and very nice service. The food so so. We had steak tartare, magret de canard and salmon. Nothing to write home about. But nothing can beat view over Arc D'Triomphe. The wine and nice staff made the evening very pleasurable.
