We had lunch here, off season so not so busy. Decent restaurant, nice food. We had the menu, which was fine. The dorade was really good. Also the small bottle of wine was nice.

Nice French cuisine food, 3 course meal for 22 euro was worth every penny. Skip the house wine. Friendly staff and I was even rewarded whiskey for free. 😄

Out of the three nights we ate out during our visit, this restaurant was our favourite. Food was all excellent, especially considering it was cheaper than anywhere we had been the previous nights. Service was good and friendly. Nice ambience. Suited us perfectly.

Delicious food - with a taste, something I think is quite difficult to find in Paris. Service was decent, timing was good, overall satisfied.

Found this place tonight as we were walking around. It was wonderful! So glad we stopped in. The whole experience, from the food to the ambience to the service was just incredible. Very reasonably priced, especially for the quality.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
