A group of friends happened upon this really wonderful bistro. The food was delicious and the owner took wonderful care of us. Delicious duck, steak, veal, salmon as well as a huge eclair for desert.

A great cafe/bistro alternative to the more expensive restaurants in Trocadero. Experience a true French cafe with beautiful food at reasonable prices. I had the signature prawn dish which was excellent!

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
