Great restaurant with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower from the patio. Food is good, service was excellent and the Eiffel Tower at night sparkling in lights is so romantic. Highly recommend for a nice dinner after your tourist activities of the day.

Perfectly located near Eiffel Tower. Lovely outside patio. Loaded with Parisian and touristy smokers. Ugh EVERYONE. Even sitting inside the smoke is like a blanket continually waving over you. We left before ordering. Table service took way to long to greet. We were overcome by the smoke. We found L'Avenue just around the corner. Fabulous place.

Having been regular visitors every time that we visit Paris - more than 10 years - I was very disappointed with our recent visit. Taking a family party of 7 to celebrate a significant birthday, my daughter booked to guarantee a good table. On arrival, the request for a table near the window had gone by the board. Indeed they...

I dined with four other colleagues in this quite touristy restaurant, The restaurant is on a busy junction overlooking the Pont D'Alba and more spectacularly the Eiffel Tower. The evening started well with the staff giving us a nice table in what was almost a private dining room, so we immediately felt at ease. The menu include a fantastic selection... More

Food rates as okay, however the service we'd received last week whilst dining at Chez Francis with my boyfriend tonight was poor. We asked three times to have a table closer to the terrace but was told they're for groups of 3 or more... moments later two couples were seated at those very tables! Could it have been because we...

My wife and I stopped by for a drink at 5. p.m. after an afternoon stroll along the Seine. The lady at the entrance was not accomodating at all, and we turned to leave. They suddenly had found a table, and we were seated. We waited more than 5 minutes without being waited upon, and took our leave.

We wanted to end our visit in Paris with a beer in the sun. This place proved to be a good selection. Service was OK but location very good. A hydrogen refuelling station across the street was an interesting visit after.

Walking down the Seine and stopped for a drink and snack. Service was good, a few swift Grimbergen's and Croque Monsieur in the sun. Great view of the Effiel tower and a people watching spot. Don't walk past drop on.

Late lunch on a sunny terrace was ruined by an obnoxious waiter who after attempting to turn his silly jokes into talking points failed to attend our table resulting in an ever ending series of cold dishes. Shame the staff are not more tip conscious and service oriented.
