We ate at the restaurant several times during our visit. The food is stellar. Best lentils I have ever had. Fabulous drinks and the nightlife is hopping.

Dish are overpriced and basic (e.g roasted veggies for 15€ !!), Pint of Heineken costs the almost the same 9.5€. Crowded and noisy, the service is chaotic and long.

The location of the Mama Shelter hotel and its restaurant is a bit outside of the city center, but if you are not far from the neighborhood it is worth a visit. Excellent for a dinner with friends (rather than for a romantic dinner as it is a bit noisy). Nice design deco, great atmosphere, trendy, good music (some times... More

The food is great: excellent dumplings, good Black Angus steak, good Tuna steak, fabulous molted chocolate cake (menu by 3* chef Guy Savoy). Good red wine (Chateauneuf du Pape). Service is great. Also popular cocktail spot.

Been 5+ times now, each time I go it's less impressive. I used to love it. Really downgraded in food quality, no flavour. Typical Parisienne service. Once trendy but losing its edge. Won't revisit anytime soon.

Was with a big group, the service was professional, the food was excellent. I'd stop in even if I were not staying at the hotel, just to feel part of the fun...

Very pleasant surprise. Some friends invited us to meet them there. At first it was a bit difficult to find it and I must say I did not expect much knowing the fake trendy neighbourhood but it was really a nice and pleasant surprise. The waiter was funny and friendly, the food was good and they had a real treat,... More

I called for a reservation, they said they couldn't get us a table at the restaurant for sure, but that we could come and have drinks, before either going to the restaurant, either going to their pizzeria. Once we arrived in front, (we : 2 mens well dressed) we weren't even allowed to get in, because "they were full". 3... More
