In a restaurant like this, where creativity reigns over formality, I think you can expect some hits and misses. The good news, we had mostly hits, especially the cured pork belly, some aged Comte cheese that melted in your mouth, the raw scallop salad (maybe...More

The wine, bread and sallad was good, but not the food unfortunately. It was an off flavour (hors saveur) on the food!! I complained and left the food untouched but the wait staff started discussing with me ...... Very bad in other words.

Highly creative and unusual menu. Well executed. Interesting and reasonably priced wine list - most wines in the 40-70 Euro range. Friendly and helpful staff. Would be a regular at this French-with-Japanese-twist restaurant if I lived in Paris.

Since 3 months ago a new chef is in charge: Axel Ayza. Simply one of the best meals I have ever had comparing with price and location (Paris)! The selection of wines by the team of sommeliers and the service received was simply amazing. The...More

Everything was so good!!! Want to go back. Hard to get a table as true fashion people and celebrities were present but in a low key way.

Nice restaurant, very friendly service, the food lovely, we had the veal brains, which you must try, bit disappointed on the wine as both were very apple tasting, but all in all, would definitely return.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
