Lovely atmosphere. Good food taste like homemade, 3 course meal for just 17.90€. Definitely something to try if you are around.

We were trying to get into le Jacobine down the street but couldn't so we found this place. No reservation but got a table for two with no problem. The waiter serving us was fantastic but I didn't ask his name. Great service to everyone....It is a small place but just enough space between tables to make it great. My wife had escargot and I had the boeuf bourgingon. Both were fantastic. My wife had wine which she said was great and the selection was quite adequate. For dessert I had profiteroles and she had creme brule I think. Again really good. Prices are reasonable and in one of the best most lively neighborhoods in Paris. Short stroll to the river and Place St Michel. Highly recommend this place.More

Really good value for money! Tasty duck from the menu for the reasonable price. Best crème brulé I've ever had!

The male host stood on the entrance of the restaurant, charming me to enter. I sat down and enjoyed my lunch, while I looked at the activity outside on the street. There is a movie theater across from the restaurant and also Le ChoChotte.

But I guess, to each his own. We picked the place simply bcause we were running short on time and I had no desire to waste it. The place advertises Prix Fixe menue for 17.90 that includes your typical 3 course meal. So went typical...too. Escargot, onion soup....etc. Cant say that the dishes were bad. No, they were just typical the diner style dishes. To add to the above experienceare the interior walls of this place are covered with paneling and magazine cutouts from the 70's that carry the feeling of saddnes and a desire to run away. Both gentlemen who run the joint, have everything down packed. Every sentence, every move is made out of repeating it so many times that it became automatic- second nature. You are just one of many who fall for this tourist hole.More

Nothing fancy, just another tourist restaurant. Food was alright, service was good. I had the set menu; good value for money.

We ate our first dinner in Paris here and decided to return for our last. Each time the service was great, dishes fabulous, and the desserts divine! So glad we decided to return. We loved the escargot, onion soup, and beef bourguignon. Prices were so...reasonable! Trip Advisor’s link is NOT for the correct restaurant.More

Everything from the welcome, the communication, service and definitely the food was the best we have had. Although we have only had good experiences in Paris, this restored our faith in quality and value. This was top class food at a very reasonable price.

Very friendly waiter and told us exactly what the menu was and how much for a three course meal, must say have spent a lot more on food in Paris and not as good as this place. Makes you feel welcome and must speak 4...languages as he talked to everyone. Very pleasant ambience, the thing that impressed me the most was the service and friendliness of the place. Recommend for a nice lunch at a reasonable price for the food, oh and does a nice beer so I am told, my friend recommends the beer.More

This restaurant does the three course special for under 20 euro. The food is all good. Servings are not too big. Not many vegetables. The wine is very expensive. The servers are friendly and a bit quirky. Good English.
