Very average atmosphere, at enormous prices - with actually surprisingly "ordinary" fare. Nothing exceptional here, aside from the bill... "salade" was €30 - it consisted of a bowl of butter-lettuce leaves sprinkled with an unexciting vinaigrette...c'est tout! Toasted baguette was verging on burnt - which...More

One of my favorite restaurants in Paris, Plates are huge as well as the prices. I always order one Fois gras for two, the veal with cream for two people, if you are still hungry, order the snails. This is a true french restaurant.

Friends had recommended this small restaurant, but we did not have many expectations. To our delight, the food was very good, even though prices were quite steep. But now day, nothing in Paris is cheap. We had an excellent burger, tender duck, and some very...More
