A very nice meal for our family of 5. Choice was good, and the meal was delicious. Service was friendly. Knowledge of menu was good, and they were able to advise on which of their dishes were gluten free. Would definitely visit again.

Pre booked a table by telephone a few days before which was easy and straightforward. Dinner was excellent crab cakes followed by roasted hake were both superb. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for food, service and prices. Great evening out.

The concierge at the hotel secured us a spot at this restaurant. No it isnt that big, welcome to Europe! The food was delicious though and the staff was very nice. Also the decor was perfect for Paris

We enjoyed our meal, the food was very good with some excellent fish options. We also enjoyed the wine list. However we were jammed alongside other diners in a bench style set up. Maybe they only do this when they're particularly busy...? So be aware...More

Visited this place close to Christmas, the restaurant was packed and still the plates come out very quickly, the food was very good but the service a little too impersonal and there was literally not enough space. The tables are like 4cm one to another...More

My waitress was so kind- and the food (or should I just say- steak and fries) were amazing!!! A tip to anyone going for the first time, do not fill up on the bread! The salad they bring is delicious, and they bring you more...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

Laura, I gave this restaurant just an average rating, and said I probably would not return. It is adequate if you do not have high expectations. There are better restaurants in the area, just not open on Sunday. I would... More
