We had this restaurant recommended by staff at the Notre Dame Cathedral. A little off the beaten path but well worth finding it. Flavors are amazing and varied. Not a "cheap eats" place, but a true gourmet experience. Everything is made on site...fresh and French....More

The food, the ambiance, the wine and the service in this small fine dining restaurant were all top notch! We were even served complimentary champagne outdoors while we waited for our table! I will definitely return if ever given the opportunity!

A small packed Bistro nearby the Seine on the left bank. Nice friendly staff, efficient service and food was good! Had a good glass of Champagne but red wine by the glass was just ok for my tast. A good address to keep!
