The service, the food, and the wine are mediocre , making this place highly overrated and overpriced . I had beef which was a piece of rubber basically. If you want a bad dining experience then it’s the right place ! NEVER AGAIN.

I love this little cozy restaurant. Very friendly staff, good food and a great location just off the Rue de Rivoli. The tartare de boeuf is excellent! I have only eaten lunch here, but would certainly try it for dinner as well.

We had made a reservation for 4 for Saturday evening 22nd July in French. We arrived, were seated and although the restaurant was maybe 30 % or less filled, we were completely ignored for 20 minutes. In the meantime we asked about three times whether...More

towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
