We stumbled (not literally :) onto this fun-filled Bistro in the Paris Antique Market. We heard laughter and wonderful traditional or vintage Parisian music and the next thing we knew we were amongst local friends! These people were wonderful and embraced us which was what made it truly a day to remember. We are flying through Paris this June (2017)... More

This was truly a fun experience. There are a few singers who perform classic French songs, many Edith Piaf tunes, along with a two-piece band. Make sure to bring lots of coins and small bills with you so you can tip each singer as they come by. The atmosphere is very jovial and the entire place is steeped in history... More

We were drawn in from the flea market by the sound of someone singing who sounded a lot like Edith Piaf. What a fun place! Packed with people it was like stepping back in time. The food was not good but for once we didn't care because we so enjoyed the singing and the atmosphere. When the lady who channels... More

I stumbled on this bistrot while in the Flea Market and it is VERY CHARMING, the food was SURPRISNGLY GOOD and the atmosphere brought you back to the turn of the century when flea market workers would have eaten there BUT BE ADVISED! BRING SMALL BILLS. ADD UP YOUR CHECK BEFORE THEY DO. I had a E6.00 salad and a... More

What a fun to have lunch in this brasserie chantante! The staff is all troisième age or close. Head waitress carries two referee style whistles to manage the continuous flow of food traffic. Singers are good 60ies style. Get a seat in the gallery for the best view. Food is OK, but it is the experience for which you should... More

Tremendous fun for lunch, food's not bad but it's really the atmosphere you go for. Singing, piano accordion etc. my teenage kids loved it which is saying something. The street entrance is hard to find as it's buried among pop-up shoe and t-shirt stalls, but there is an entrance off the market which is a lot easier and more pleasant.

On the edge of the antiques market this restaurant has to be the epitome of the times gone by French Restaurant. Accordian player, singers, non existent service, mediocre food, take it or leave it attitude, BUT tremendous atmosphere and FUN. I felt like I was taking part in a film whilst we were here having lunch. I doubt the champagne... More

Had a fabulous lunch here with family, with a classic French soundtrack! I had the rabbit, and we all split a bottle of Rose from Provence. Service was relaxed, but the music and atmosphere more than makes up for it.

Unfortunately I can't comment on the food or drink at this restaurant as we didn't get that far! We arrived and were ignored for 10 minutes before eventually finding someone to seat us in the half empty restaurant. After receiving the menus we waiting a further 20 minutes for someone to come and take our order - the waitress continuously... More
