A culinary experience at its best! Creative and innovative, though not loosing the traditional French cuisine basics, only using fresh seasonal products. Small cosy place in great location, just a mere steps from the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars. Gigi gave us great recommendations...More

Enjoyed a nice meal. Light, fresh, and innovative. Attentive staff and open late. Creme brulé with sage and passion fruit was best I ever had!

Tucked away from one of the main road ..this restaurant is a bijoux of the area. It is 5 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. It is simply a great French food and great service.

There were 2 children at the restaurant when we visited - about 6 or 8 years old - and they looked very happy! I agree with the previous post that there probably aren't high chairs or booster seats. The menu is fairly... More
