Chilli and garlic would have made... More

I visited this place with business colleagues the day that all the world leaders were in Paris for the climate change Summit. As a result, traffic was terrible and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The person who served us was delightful, although I assumed he was not one of the twins who own this restaurant.I don't know... More

A great place to go for dinner. Lots of locals seem to be eating here. The atmospere is nice and cozy and the food is great, as well as the service. French but with a modern twist to it. The menu is short but varied,and includes many daily specials too. An excellent wine list with many good value wines in... More

What more could you ask for? We went with friends and had a wonderful meal with a super wine chosen from a great wine menu with varying prices (something for every budget). Very good, personalized service. They speak enough English to help you if your French isn't the best. It's a real plus for the 17th arrondissement and we look... More

This is a small restaurant with outstanding cooking. Nothing pretentious in the room or the service - just quality in the things that count. From start to finish, tip-top food, all perfectly cooked and finely-balanced. Great atmosphere: a truly memorable evening. One could easily be charged three times the amount for this sort of food within a kilometre. Don't miss... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant at the recommendation of the staff at our hotel. It was described as a good, typical French restaurant. Karl and Erick are twins with Erick taking care of the tables and Karl handling the chef duties. Both were reasonably friendly and we thought the service was fine, in fact, Karl actually brought...

This restaurant served incredible food. I had the foie gras starter, and the lamb main course. They were both delicious, which I was extremely pleased about. However, the lamb did come a bit too pink, but they will cook it a bit more for you as long as you ask.
