Relaxing bistro with very good basic food, nice libations & very nice staff. Relaxing, neighborhood. Excellent Salade Nicoise; very good Croque Monsieur! A must.

Our tired group of 7, after a long flight, was really hungry... and needed to find anything to eat on our first night in Paris. Could have been a recipe for disaster.

Fortunately, we happened upon this out of the way corner restaurant. The menu was only in French. The waitress only had a smattering of English (to our less than smattering of French). But, she moved a couple sitting at a table to make room for our larger group.

We gestured and guessed our way to semi-understanding an order. We held our breath...and were presented with an outstanding meal! The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and welcoming. The price was a bit higher than we wanted to pay, initially....but, after tasting our food, there were no complaints! And the desert was the best we had in 8 lovely days in Paris.

What a happy surprise!

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 appreciated, being a chilly day. Had one of their planche boards with meat, cheese and served with bread with wine, beer and coffees. Delicious food to savour and take time over. Being it was around lunch-time, the place was really busy with groups of locals. Service was slow for ordering extra drinks - ordered more part way through the meal, some time after reminded the server but they did not arrive within the 45 minutes or so more I stayed there. This is what looses a star from the rating. Other than this small point, it was a great experience at an authentic eatery.

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, yet flavorful and satisfying along with a light house red wine. Highly recommend stopping in here if you find yourself near Les Halles.

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!
