Reviews of interest

John Talbott (2014) “The menu is as interesting as ever.”

Table à Découvert (2011) “Générosité, simplicité et un petit truc en plus qui enrobe le tout d’une sincère gourmandise…”

Figaroscope (2011) “Au bon matelas d’un arrondissement solidement rembourré de plumes bistrotières, un petit nouveau tirant joliment la couverture d’une cuisine troussée à manière sur un impayable décor jadis et pépère.”

John Talbott (2010) “The decor spells out the tone they’re setting right away: old Michelin‘s on a shelf over the kitchen door, faux-stained glass on the door to the kitchen, beautiful but unmatched light fixtures, old coat hooks on the walls…As an amuse bouche, we were served a chicken liver paste with two types of superb bread and that and a delicious piece of sauteed foie gras with wonderful salad and quince slices…”

  1. We agree with Randy de Paris! Great place for a great dinner with great service! We got there late on Monday (1030pm) after a round-trip on the Batobus (last stop at the Eiffel Tower) and walked a few blocks to the restaurant; they still had the full menu available and it was great. Enjoy a neighborhood Bistro with great food and service!

  2. Lately, there’s been a lot of discussion on “service issues” in Paris, e.g., just getting a reservation is impossible at “flavor of the season” restaurants. I’m a strong believer that wonderful dining experience starts from the time you make your reservations to the time you leave. And, yes it does exists in Paris and we have choices. I have to say, this restaurant delivered.

    The food, ambiance, overall service were all excellent. At the end of our meal Chef Pierre Lenormand came out to talk to us, and we thanked and praised him for the wonderful meal we had, and just overall fantastic evening. Our meal for 6 of us came to about 47€ per person with a a Basque red wine, Irouléguy Arretxea for 32€ and house white for 20€. Some of us ordered the prefix, and others off the regular menu. This is a great deal for the city.

    This is the type of restaurant that we need to support, by doing so we’re sending a message to other restaurants that have bad attitude that they’re not God’s gift to the “Food world” we have choices!
