If you want a quiet place to eat then do not go here as it is crazy busy, but is reasonable priced for a Paris eatery. The food is tasty and the salad we ordered was enormous. Service can be a bit patchy, but our...More

We wanted a good burger for a change, after over 20 days in Europe. We found it here, although at a high price. The €17 burgers were good, but way overpriced. The place is clean, reminiscent of US restaurants, and they have a wide menu....More

Positives: Children's menu, which is rare in Paris, and colouring etc to keep them happy. Good portions for kids too. Negatives: Adults had €20 set menu with rather limited choice and the food was fairly dull. Service rather typically grumpy. Disappointing.

Went for steak and chips with green beans which 'seems to be their speciality'. Firstly the food was not particularly hot not helped by a stone cold plate. Having fought through several bits of undigestable gristle which I removed from my mouth courtesy of my...More

The wait person was wonderful and very helpful. The food was bad. A ribeye steak so tough you could barely cut it or chew it. Avoid this place

Visited many Hippopotamus restaurants and they never fail to impress on the quality of food. Their Steak kebab with bernaise sauce is fabulous as well as their creme brulee.
