We had a real good experience and were happy to find the staff spoke good English and provided an English menu. It's a large environment but felt cost and not too loud. The meal deals are good value for money and the desserts delicious.

We had great steaks, also the lamb was excellent. The waiter did not speak much English, but was very friendly and with the help of a French and an English menu we sorted out what everyone wanted to order. Prices were very reasonable for Paris.

The restaurant is nice and I have nothing to say about the quality of food: the fillet was tasty and tender, the side dishes were good too. However the service was quite awful: each waiter was rude, they take a really long time to serve...More

Meat is ok but this place is way too packed, noisy and busy for you to enjoy your meal. You can find a lot of better options around where you will get a far better meal for a cheaper price.More

We came for the second times and as usual we really enjoy it, the chateaubriand was delicious , the personnel was very friendly and helpful. The only thing is do stay near the windows in the winter , it is cold.

We stopped in on a rainy day. They featured mostly hamburgers, steaks and salads on their menu. My warm goat cheese salad was decent. My husband had the fish and chips which were better then he expected. Service was fine.

Not a very exciting welcome to start but the waitress was very nice. Food was tasty but not very warm, that was disappointing. I thing you know you go their for a sort of luxurious fast food. Not extravagant prices too.More
