Go here for one of the best steaks to be experienced in France. Bring lots of appetite to share the starters prior to the piece de boeuf; don't miss out on the classic deserts. Order a house wine. You'll find a perfect blend of locals, visitors and some well known people here.

I first visited this restaurant in 1993 and try to come there as I find myself in Paris for any given occasion, business or leisure. I'm totally disappointed with the restaurant I saw last time (Saturday, 29 October 2016). First of all the new or newly initiated "boss" trying to force us to sit outside ( we're traveling with our... More

The place is welcoming, typical french restaurant with large variety of french dishes. Steak is very good and waiters are fast, welcoming and with a great know how. The only handicap is that its becoming very expensive for the same menu he's been serving since more than 10 years

I was taken here by a French colleague who knows a thing or two about food and wine. My expectations were high but they were exceeded. It's a pretty casual bistro environment and nothing posh to look at inside or out but if a good steak, decent wine and some ambience is what you fancy then this is your place.... More

If you ate looking for typical French food, this restaurant operates from years and serves e good selection of meals. The menu offers a reasonably large choice. It is usually busy, even during the week so come early or book in advance.

One the best meat restaurant in Paris with wide wine choices.. Delicious steak&frites.. Some may find manager and staff little arrogant but they know well what they do and serve.. Do not miss their daily sweet offer..

I am a NYer who loves good food and wonderful ambiance. I was recently visiting Paris for 3 weeks on business and ate at Les Gourmets des Ternes several times for lunch and dinner as the spot was close to my office. The ambiance is fun and Jean Francois, the proprietor, is a delight and quite charming. I highly recommend... More

this is a great place with excellent food. very difficult to get a place when you are not a local but worth the wait. Try the Filet "special" and ask for the Babba au Rhum.

No english menu so owner will basically order on your behalf! He is absolutely nuts and kept reminding me that he is famous, that he serves the best pepper steak in Paris etc. There is a lot of staff in the restaurant but all could do well to attend some sort of customer service course! Quite honestly the food was... More
