After sitting at the terrace, 5.30pm on a Saturday afternoon , we waited for someone to come , it was not even crowded.
After 30’ a client sitting next to us, went inside in order to ask for some drinks, he even did it for us. After another 15’, nothing, then one guy arrived, not with our orders... he started yelling at everyone , claiming he was alone, not able to attend the tables outside. Inside it was empty.
We finally got our bottle of water, and had to wait for the champagne. He insisted to get paid right away...quite unpleasant when you go to an expensive “trendy” place.
The champagne was warm, we asked for olives, we got some, less was impossible. This place opened a long time ago, I guess the owner changed, but having only one person to attend the terrace on a Saturday , what can you expect. So Parisian, in a way, the kind we truly dislike.

This place used to be great a couple of years ago. Went there for lunch yesterday and was extremely disappointed by everything... both the food and the service. Their terrace is nice for coffee or a drink when it's sunny but wouldn't recommend eating there.

My friends and I went here after my Bestie's choir performance. My mojito was really good and cheap thanks to the Happy Hour! We also had a lot of free bread (we asked for 3 or 4 refills haha). The tapas we ordered were good even though they weren't real ones (it was more like a plate full of different nibbles such as smoked salmon, ham, carrots...)
