The Restaurant's owner RUINED MY GIRLFRIEND'S BIRTHDAY (10/9/2016). I have never written a negative feed-back for a restaurant but today I had to. I came to Paris exclusively to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday: I come in the week end solely for her. I booked my flight, I bought her my present and a cake in order to celebrate the birthday...

We had dinner with a friend and chose the restaurant as it was rated well. Well, it wasn't worth it. The entrées were poor and we waited so long to order. Dishes were ok but expensive for what it was. False art nouveau decoration. I'd not recommend.

Very close to Gare de Lyon this little restaurant is located. Food of course was French, good, wine very good. We had a three course meal. Waiters speak several languages. If you have any allergies speak up quickly. I was fascinated by the electric car charging stations just outside.

Nowadays, Paris has one of the most international scenes in restaurants and sometimes you just want a tradicional dish like a boeuf bourguignon...and then you may have problems finding an authentic french dish like this. Well, I found it! the best boeuf bourguignon ever! Very good Restaurant.

Nothing special, nothing bad. The service is quite nice and the cooking is adequate. Reserve on La Fourchette to make the prices more reasonable.

We chose this cafe primarily for its location, as it is close to Gare de Lyon and we were rendezvouing with friends coming in from Versailles and Cannes. The service was excellent as our group of 7 arrived at varying times and the waiter easily accommodated the comings and goings. The carte de jour featured an excellent white fish and... More

We had a lovely meal here - a simple but well prepared starter of melon , an excellent main course of filet de dorade and very good desserts. They also have a very good wine list and we enjoyed a fine Cahors. Service was attentive and friendly and we will go back. It is a very attractive place too -... More

Good service, modern colorful decor and the food was passable but not outstanding. Still in the top half of restaurants in the Gare de Lyon area.
