My husband and I rented an apartment down the block from this self described cafe, restaurant, bar. After days out running around in the tourist zones, we spent many of our evenings decompressing here. We enjoyed several dinners including the steak tartar, which I loved, but the mixed board of charcutière et fromagère was probably our favorite, eaten outside with... More

Average food, onion sauce was fine. Gummy flank steak and over cooked fried. Waiter was fine and talkative. All in: sorry, i'd rather visit better places

The waiters/waitresses were a really joyful bunch but there was honestly nothing too special about the menu. Nice local-y atmosphere though.

We travelled to Paris and we wanted to try the real Paris cuisine with a cozy traditional environment, chilling atmosphere and professional but friendly service. The received treatment was simply amazing! We have been welcomed with a bottle of vin rouge and some very tasty bites. A proper aperitif experience. Then we had some main courses with a very good...

Speaking no french and being in a non-touristy part of Paris can be a little intimidating. Doing things like reading a menu, ordering, etc, isn't always easy. That being said, the folks that ran this restaurant were very helpful and accommodating to us. My friend and I stopped here a couple times as it was right next to our hotel.... More

Great little bistro just opposite the Metro stop of Avron. Anytime we passed to go to or from our nearby hotel, the bistro was busy. We enjoyed several drinks on the pavement tables and were impressed by the service and atmosphere each time. The food was good quality and reasonable for Paris - the chacuterie boards with bread were particularly... More

We were staying at a hotel a few doors from this restaurant and noticed during our stay that it was always busy. There is outdoor and indoor seating -the restaurant is on quite a busy corner so there is a fair bit of traffic noise although for us this added to the general atmosphere of the place. This area is... More

Having just moved into the neighborhood, we decided to try this attractive looking typical Parisian resto. They we friendly and take reservations, but upon entering we were over taken by the smell of cigarette smoke coming from the covered terrace. The door connecting the terrace with the interior was not closed. After asking for them to close the door (the... More
