Stumbled on this great little restaurant after my regular haunt had closed early for the bank holiday and really hit the jackpot..
Great friendly service, super quick - good choice of burgers (menu only in French) with the Patti cooked to preference. I went for the blue cheese and bacon burger (medium rare) and it was delicious. Then I had the white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and a Cubalibre to wash it all down.
Good service, good food and handy location.
Recommended :)

We arrived in the restaurant at 22:00 and had our burgers on the table at 23:15 a Saturday. The place wasn't crowded, we only got forgotten (they said).
The temperature in the restaurant was very hot, and very smoky. I don't recommend the place if you wear contacts, otherwise your eyes will burn.

Burgers are very tasty!

Potatoes are microwaved, but it's ok...

Too bad we couldn't try the dessert, there were no more cupcakes even though we had asked if we could order them at the same time as the dishes to be sure to have a choice. Since we were literally the last ones served in the restaurant, they were sold out.

They offered -5,75€ on the bill (after trying to steel money on dessert we didn't have).

What a shame.

Bonjour,

Je viens de prendre connaissance de l incident, avant de commencer quelque explication que ce soit je tiens à m excuser au nom de toute l équipe pour ce désagrément .
J'ai lu que vous avez choisi notre restaurant, que vous êtes venus de loin , qu'en plus vous avez apprécié nos burgers et pour cela nous en sommes d autant plus désolés .

Je suis le gérant du restaurant et je vais tâcher de répondre du mieux possible .

Vous expliquez que les serveuses ont oubliées votre commande ce qui a provoqué une grosse attente et qu'ensuite les desserts que vous aviez commandés ne vous ont pas été servis parce qu'ils ont été vendus à d autres .

Je comprend tout à fait votre mécontement
On a pour habitude de considèrer nos clients et d'être attentifs à la qualité de service .

Comme vous l avez exprimé avec beaucoup d'élégance, cela peut arriver d'oublier une commande et une fois encore nous en sommes désolés .

Les serveuses vous ont fait une remise sur l addition je vais aller plus loin en vous incitant à revenir tenter l experience ( d'autant que vous avez apprécié le repas ) et à cette occasion nous vous offrirons un boite assortiment de nos cupcakes que vous pourrez emporter chez vous ( pour votre belle-sœur je crois ....)

J'espère avoir répondu du mieux possible à vois griefs...
Et vous invite à prendre contact avec moi afin d'essayer de nous rattraper .

Bien cordialement

Ps : j'ai vu que votre ami et vous avez laissé deux commentaires chacun sur TripAdvisor et Facebook ..ne m'en voulez pas de faire un copié-collé pour la réponse

I live in vienna, austria. And ive been working in many dif restaurants for the last 10 years. So i may call myself an expert in this field.

Food 10 from 10. Seriously homemade tasty burgers with homemade potatoes and sauces !!!

Service 6 from 10. He ignored us mostly all the time. Mayb coz we look asian coz asians mostly dont tip.

But everything else was good!

We decided to have burgers in Paris. Just because. We weren't disappointed. The food was fresh and good. Not an American burger, but very flavorful. They put a cheese sauce on most of their burgers that's thick and good. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful when ordering. It's a good choice for a quick meal.
