Stopped here on the way to the hotel upon arriving in Paris. Very close to the metro station, literally a minute walk. Took a little table outside which was a great spot to watch the world go by. Heaters by the two centre tables were...More

Stopped into this bistro for lunch on a rainy day in Paris and everything was perfect. Despite being the only Americans in the restaurant, our waiter, "Gregor" spoke with us in English and treated us well. We shared a Les Halles Salad that was simple,...More

Wet night just looking for somewhere nearby to eat, came across this place and ordered the classic steak, fries and salad - what a tasty surprise this meal turned out to be. The creme brûlée was damn fine too. Highly recommended!
