  • François Simon (2011) “Amuses bouches éclatés (avec un petit délice : la purée vanillée), plats chirurgicaux, saveurs à double tiroirs.

  • Mark Bittman for The New York Times (2009) “The food is also mysterious, which is not always something I like, but here the experiments are restrained and flavor remains paramount…”
  • Patricia Wells “Chef Sylvain Sendra has moved into a charming, modern spot near Place Maubert, and offers a super-modern bistro menu…”
