This is a place to which we return on every visit to Paris. Authentic cusine in a busy bistro atmosphere. All the food is excellent but save room for Grandma's tarte tatin.

My wife and I visited for lunch and had an amazing three course lunch. Every course was super tasty, from the fresh bread to the beautiful desserts. The service was welcoming, relaxed and friendly, and the house red wine we had with our steak was perfect. Highly recommend and would imagine it being equally great for evening dinner.
