Friendly staff, nice ambience and location. My stake was good and so was the cheeseburger but the fries were cold. No choice of vegatables as side in the menu for stales over fries. Complimentary water and sauces for the burger.

We went for quick lunch and asked for a club sandwich. The sandwich was frozen. The tomatoes were literally frozen. We claim about it and they just warm up the sandwich and give it back to us.

We stumbled upon this place while wandering St Germain. We only had drinks, and the price of a bottle of wine is quite steep - but if you like a nice wine with a nice atmosphere - you will love this place. The service was...More

Good food, pleasant, young staff, and charming mix of old French style cafe and hip modern bistro. Perfect spot for a French bistrot lunch - don't miss their plats du jour. Very busy at lunch time, you might have to wait a few minutes if...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
