G27 was obviously a workshop or garage at some point in its life. The neighbourhood and bare-bones interior surely attest to that, and this reviewer feels a bit lazy to research the deeper history or meaning of this locale. However, tucked away at the front end of a dead-end street lined with a mix of somewhat run-down warehouses turned into restaurants (there are at least 2 others), some boring office buildings, and a brand-new Lidl supermarket, G27 is perhaps the cream of the crop of this neighbourhood. It is wise to reserve at lunch-time, since this vast place is always packed with office-workers looking to the "alternative" to the undoubtedly boring cafeterias and supermarket eateries nearby. The front "terrasse" in summer is not beautiful, but it is pleasant. It's not required to have an expense account to eat here, even if prices are on the higher end of average for lunch - average prices range from about 20 to 35 francs excluding starter/salad, drinks, or dessert. The quality of the cuisine keeps people coming, however. There are 4 different menus everyday, and they are consistently excellent. There is usually one pasta dish, one white meat dish, one vegetarian dish, and one red meat dish. Seasonal variations are common. All of the above have that "home-made" taste, and impeccably presented. Service is efficient, and most importantly friendly. One tends to want to linger here for the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and savour a moment of satisfaction in the middle of a grudging work-day. Never disappointed, always satisfied, G27 is a welcome escape from the office ! A pity it's not more centrally located, as this area of town is deader than dead after office hours and on week-ends...
