Simple but excellent food. A little quirky but a lovely find. Great lunch menu and top deserts. Good value for the middle of Paris

We found this place accidently a year ago while in Paris visiting our daughter. Enjoyed the meal so much we went back again this year with a group to celebrate her 21st bday. The staff could not have been nicer making a fuss over her. The food is home made and delicious. We did the cheese and meat plate appetizer along with the melted cheese and bread starter. Everyone from meat lovers to vegetarians at the table found an incredible choice. To my knowledge they do not take reservations but we did not have a problem with a table going early (7pm). We had several bottles of red wine that were very good and reasonably priced. There is a lower level that seems to be more for just having drinks and probably goes on later than the restaurant. We didn't go down there but it looked very quaint. You will enjoy your visit to this restaurant.

Love this cafe! It's all I imagined French cuisine should be! Everything is homemade and absolutely delicious! The staff are friendly and accommodating. Prices are competitive. The , plat du jour, is all I have had there and you get options as to the desserts(to die for!) and or cafe. I highly recommend this cafe if ever you are In this area. Be forewarned that their kitchen closes after lunch and then reopens at around 7 or 7h30.

We had an impromptu dinner at the Carpe Diem which was wonderful. I had the steak with salad and both were perfect. Menus are available in English and the staff are also fluent. The decor and ambience has a slightly medevil vibe to it which appealed to us. I can recommend this restaurant/ bar highly for an informal dinner.
