This was far and away our favorite meal in Paris, France. We went on a hotel recommendation and this place did not disappoint. We didn't make a reservation (will do that next time) and waited about 10-15 minutes for a table to open up. The...More

To say we enjoyed ourselves is an understatement. We were warmly welcomed and treated like a regular. We were treated to a special selection that more than suited our tastes From start to finish the meal exceeded our expectations.

Classic French bistro. Good selection of food ranging from nibbles to starters, main courses and desserts. Really friendly and attentive service from aproned and waistcoated waiters. Would recommend for a pavement drink to a good-value, tasty meal.

Friendly service, English spoken in case you need it, with a good fresh French fare. Location is close to Musee Rodin and walking distance from central Paris.

Tried the sardine dish featured here as an appetizer (I was skeptical but it was quite tasty) the butter cuts the intensity. Very accommodating, found us a table (in the back room) without any reservation. Outside is nice but fills up quickly during busy hours....More

French bistro/cafe, good food (great steamed cod this week, tho we asked for a little sauce & they brought it, no questions). The service is so nice, quality predictable & they accommodate gluten free (I didn’t get sick either). Recommend rsv at lunch & dinner.

We did not eat breakfast there. I'm not sure it's open for breakfast. At Hotel Pont Royal the breakfast is wonderful!

I have seen dogs there but it is not really a patio. It is more a row of small table and seats each side. Rue de Bac is a busy place and your dog would have to be well behaved to avoid being trod on by pedestrians!
