Little bit cramped but overall very nice restaurant accented on sea food dishes (bit strange for central Paris) with kind but non-English speaking staff. Both dishes and wines were splendid though. Close to Stalingrad metro station with nice view on Bassin de la Villette channel.

Good food, good view of the canal and definitely a place to eat if you are in the area. You can then stroll around the canal and observe locals playing bocci or play a game yourselves.

This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
