The food is very good, we tried the matured entrecote and it was excellent. I also liked very much the andouillette and the bone marrow with toast. Good wines, good prices and cheerful staff. Nice atmosphere!

Beautiful Art nouveau building that seems to be the remaining edge of a larger building that was demolished (super cool). Fun staff. Great food cooked by ratatouille himself. The bone marrow serving was huge!! Had the best night here with friends.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
