A very good restaurant but don't bother- you are in Paris and there are better restaurants and better experiences in the same price range with a Michelin star- try Le Violon D'Ingres instead!

Made reservations for the seven course "Discovery Menu", and asked for wine suggestions. Food was outstanding, as was wine recommendations. Service flawless! Highly recommended!

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
