Every time I can go, I do it. The best good in the neighbourhood at an acceptable price. During winter months book upstairs next to window and view on the notre dame. For summer months I would suggest on the ground floor. The food is deliglcious and the service makes you feel appreciated and special. If you are in Paris,... More

Not only was the food very, very good, the staff was great! We do not speak French and they were incredible helpful in suggesting something we would like. Great location very close to Notre Dame. Has great outdoor seating as well as indoors. Definitely the best meal we had in Paris!

This place was amazing and provided the perfect French dining experience that we were looking for without breaking the bank!

Came here because of a friend's recommendation. It's across the road from Notre Dame and next to the Shakespeare book shop. Best meal we had in Paris. It's a cosy restaurant with 2 levels and very friendly service. The menu doesn't have much English but the staff will translate for you so listen well. We had the snails (nice), some... More

We both ordered steak (filet and rib eye) and watched it being cooked over an open fire at the back of the restaurant. Both of our steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious. We enjoyed our meals with the very good house red!
