We stopped in on a rainy day. They featured mostly hamburgers, steaks and salads on their menu. My warm goat cheese salad was decent. My husband had the fish and chips which were better then he expected. Service was fine.

Not a very exciting welcome to start but the waitress was very nice. Food was tasty but not very warm, that was disappointing. I thing you know you go their for a sort of luxurious fast food. Not extravagant prices too.More

I had there a Hippo-Burger with Pommes. It was a very good Burger for the money. It‘s not a romantic athmosphere, so maybe not the best place for a Date, but perfect for an evening with friends.More

If you want a quiet place to eat then do not go here as it is crazy busy, but is reasonable priced for a Paris eatery. The food is tasty and the salad we ordered was enormous. Service can be a bit patchy, but our...More
