There are many restaurants in the Bastille neighborhood, but this one has been around for a long time for a reason. Very friendly service. Frequented by locals. Classic French dishes. Generous portions. I'd recommend any of the meat dishes.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards

Hello. They have a number of separate rooms and so I am sure a Private Dining experience could be organised however I do not know if they would do a buffet or a smaller set menu. Best to contact restaurant directly.
