The restaurant is very low profile, we walked pass it few times still could not find the place. Food is excellent, I had a happy afternoon here. Worth the money and it deserves the 2 stars.

One of the best dining experiences, I have ever had! Perfect and exciting food, polite and friendly staff - a bit expensive, but worth every penny. Will most definitely come back, when I'm visiting Paris again! The selection of wines is incredible!
