Every time we come back to Paris go in this nice little restaurant. The service is excellent. The ambiance is great. And the quality of the meals is also a real good experience. My special advice for the desert: Take the cheesecake with speculoos. It is great. :-D

I really enjoyed the experience at a busy lunch service. Small restaurant, very friendly and caring waiter. The food was delicious and prices were moderate.

I called at 6pm on the night to book a table for me and my girlfriend, I was relieved that the person that answered could speak English (I know I should know French if I'm in France but I just don't), very nice on the phone, booking me at table for 9PM. The restaurant is small but very cosy and... More

I don't think I can fault this place; the food is great without an overwhelming menu (always a good sign), it seemed to be packed with locals (always a good sign), the waiters even helped me out with my poor French (don't believe what they say about Parisien maître d'). And the service was SO fast I was in danger... More

This place is extremely good, very friendly and the food was excellent. Fantastic dessert and they are very attentive and accommodating to food allergies. I would definitely recommend without any hesitation. Enjoy your dinner, we did.

A small restaurant located just a minute or two from picpus metro station, it offers great food served by friendly and attentive staff. Advanced reservation is recommended, especially for dinner. Highly recommended!

My server said they cut their finger while cutting my bread. This led me to question that my bread was treated hygienically, especially something questionable (perhaps blood) on the napkin inside the bread basket. The food I had was good, including the speculoos cheesecake. I also had an issue with the service since I waited around for 20 or more... More

We managed to get a table without a reservation which was lucky as the restaurant began to fill up quickly. This is a wonderful restaurant hidden down a Parisian street. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. The staff spoke excellent English and made us feel very welcome.

My daughter is living near Le Picotin for her summer study abroad, so we wanted to try her neighborhood bistro. It was well worth the Metro ride from our rental in Saint Germain for a beautiful lunch. The dining room was inviting and the staff welcoming and attentive. Our server provided us with an English menu after noticing our struggle... More
