I am sitting in this dive of a pathetic and so cold restaurant/bar, writing this review! The place is so bad, chewing gum on the seat in-between us which we covered with the menu. The beer is dead!! End of!! Heineken in a standard beer...glass which I CANNOT condone as it kills the beer. The missus is having watered down hot chocolate. Not bad all for 15 euros, should have gone McDonald's!More

We came here on our first night in Paris and it definitely didn’t disappoint. The food was beautiful, the waitress was wonderful she even indulged me with my awful French. Had plenty of laughs throughout our time at the restaurant. I loved the decor as...well. Nice atmosphere, we would certainly come back here if we return to Paris. It was difficult to find another restaurant with high standards in food and customer service.More

we had a nice breakfast here - after a bit of a false start! We asked for the menu as we wanted eggs and the waitress was a little "off" and rather frosty. However, once she realised we were staying she changed completely and couldn't...have been nicer. We had 2 eggs, ham, baguette and jam plus a croissant and a coffee of your choice and a juice for 15 euros each - well worth the money.More

We've eaten here before as it is pretty close to the hotel where we stay. We both chose the Magret of Duck which was cooked very nicely with a Blackberry sauce which made a change from what we get used to in UK, and a...big portion (for me) of mashed potato. This was all enjoyed. Nice atmosphere and service was good for a busy bistro. The waitress was clearly working hard. Yes, I'd be happy to recommend and return, even though it was perhaps just a little more expensive than I might have expected.More

Stopped here for lunch after it was recommended by a friend that used to live around the corner in the 15th. Have to say all the food was of a good standard. I particularly enjoyed the Goats Cheese Salad, whilst the teens all ate burgers,...which looked really good. Overall we definitely recommend it and would returnMore

We stumbled across this place on our last night in Paris and I'm only sorry we didnt find it sooner as we would have returned again and again. The restaurant is extremely cosy. As soon as we walked through the door we were welcomed in...with a warm smile from Estelle and showed straight to our table. She was extremely interested and made us feel like the only customers in the restaraunt. Thiery also made himself known and treated us to a drink on the house after dinner. I had the duck and my partner had the steak and both meals were simply exceptional!! We will definitely stop by again next time we are in Paris. Thierry even took the time to pose for a picture with us! Would highly highly recommend!! A MUST VISIT when in Paris! Thank you Thierry and Estelle!!More

Unlike other neighbouring cafés where staff can be very rude, we got excellent service and advice during our meal. Very cosy inside in winter. And they serve food non-stop. Thank you Primerose team for a nice afternoon meal!

I have generously given this bistro 2 stars. How else would you rate duck breast cooked yesterday (or the day before?), burnt fries and indifferent service? And if you do happen to come here after ignoring all the bad reviews - like I did because...not much else was open New Year’s Day - don’t sit in the outer section unless you smoke like a steam train. There are much better places to spend your hard earned.More
