We were just walking around the area and getting hungry when we found this place. the food was really good and the service was really friendly. The menu was quite clumsy as it was on a huge board that was brought to our table and only in English. But the staff took their time to explain the food as recommend... More

Invited friends for early drinks, and bites. We had fantastic oysters, great charcuterie, beauuuuutiful cheeses. Chef is Japanese, and it shows in the product selection which are really premium. Wine selection is unbelievable! And there is a secret cellar below, that if you are lucky and owner is there, you can check out, with treasures that only ***Michelin wine lists... More

Small and cosy french chic resto with great starter prosciutto and mozzarella. Food is great but the atmosphere is delighted. If you want to enjoy true french style with great wine it's the best place to be.

Les Fines Gueules is a very cosy place on three floors, though the trip from the Middle floor to the lower is just a few steps. Once inside though, it is pretty, cosy and characterful. The menu varies depending upon the season, but there is always some fish, some red meat and something for herbivores. The desserts vary too, but... More

It's small, it's authentic, it's friendly, and it's serious about its food and wine. What's not to like? Should I really be letting everyone know about this? Don't tell! Not only was their well-recognized tuna tartare beyond our expectations, but the service was impeccable. Ask for our waiter, Thibault. He truly listened to my wine preferences, asked questions, then found... More

Ah foodie heaven! We were a little apprehensive having read some reviews about our lack of spoken French but no, it was perfect. We sat in the cosy tiny section to the right of the bar along with the locals and had an excellent meal. The menu is drawn up on a late blackboard taken to your table. GCSE French... More

Went on a Saturday night, just after 9pm, and the place was packed - but we were seated after 10min. The traditional jamon slicer behind the bar foretold one of great starters, the charcuterie which, along with the foie gras was great. The tuna tartare with wasabi was very good as was the beef tartare and chicken.

It's like the little restaurants they show in movies where girl meets boy without their parents knowing. It's in a basement not far from St Honore and it offers market fresh food. The carte is simple but well tought and the wine list is original and mostly bio. So on a late night go for the romantic approach of Paris... More

We were going to another restaurant which was full, then got recommended to this place for dinner. We were lucky to take the corner seat near the window, great night view and peaceful to look out. Restaurant was packed and still people waiting for table as we were leaving! Service was very good, all male waiters! Food tasted great, we... More
