A very rainy evening and we arrived quite early, but still were pleasantly welcomed by the maître d' and sat at a nice table for 2. This is obviously a well established place frequented mainly by locals, very few tourists, fairly expensive, but it is...More

Bonjour Madame, and thank you for your message. We read your comment very seriously and are really sorry about this poor experience. Though, we are a little surprised because we do not serve any lamb sweatbread, and we don't have any "Foie Gras Torchon" either....More

Typical and elegant bistrot! The food is excellent and the staff friendly and professional. A wide range of good wines. Every time I go to Paris I don't miss this pleasant restaurant. Booking required.
