Don't let the fact that the menu was in French only and the staff only spoke French stop you from visiting this restaurant! In the 12th arrondisment you will find this restaurant. Delicious meals had by our group. We had the fixed price three course meal which was very reasonable. Even though waiter didn't speak English, he was very patient... More

Just finished lunch here. As one of the reviewers said, food is simple, but it looks fresh and it's good. Had a entrecôte with fries and a crumble (desserts are all homemade and all look pretty good) for 14 euros, so value is good for the quality. Staff is really friendly, genuinely. Definitely would recommend it for a nice lunch!

This neighborhood restaurant near our hotel and the Nation metro was perfect for what we were looking for-a quiet simple dinner with good food and service. The "formula" menu had many choices and atmosphere was very easy.

Had a great Sun day lunch here. Manager very helpful and nice choice of wines by the carafe - rare to get a chablis that way though not top quality of course. Had duck confit which beautifully cooked.

I've only been here with a buddy for a couple of beers but just that experience told me I could chance it for food. I haven't done that yet but trust it will be good. What I can tell you is the pints of Stella were relatively cheap and the bar person was nice. The covered outside patio, with maybe... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Paris, and couldn't have had a better experience. The wait staff were great, and very patient with our (very bad) attempts at French. The food was delicious, especially the Escalope d volailles and the desserts. It was great quality food for a very fair price - would recommend to everyone!

We ate on the patio...sidewalk tables...and watched the street drama unfold during the whole meal. We ordered their lunch special...one of seven...the Tartine Praxsannel. It included a salad and toasted bread as the base, then a layer of fresh tomatoes, a layer of sliced potatoes, a layer of breast of chicken and a layer of gorgeous mild cheese. The whole... More

My friend is a Parisian & he brought me here for a meal, drinks, and dessert. I always figure that if a local is choosing a place, it must be good. And based on the atmosphere and comments from the guests around us, this is a good place. French servers aren't generally known for being overly hospitable, but our server... More

Delicious, authentic local cuisine made from the heart, very satisfying. Do try their recommended dishes! Happy to end my day on a sweet note with their dessert trio.

Nice on the patio facing the street. Service OK - provided English menu once he realised we didn't speak French. Food good.
