Great new Japanese restaurant neighboring Le Relais de L’Entrecote. Quiet, warm, attentive service and excellent kitchen. Fish and deserts are amazing! Nothing too salt. Nothing too sweet.

A very nice place with very simple yet trendy interior. The staff are very nice and attentive. Food was served in small portions but multiples dishes so we got to try many many things. Super nice place! Highly recommend.

Nice minimalist decor. Fresh noodles everyday made by the chef in a small room inside the restaurant. Makes a change from the majority of the sushi and brochettes Japanese restaurants in Paris. Cooking is light and maybe a bit too light. Recommended: fried oysters, octopus...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
