I like the ambience of the restaurant, with its charming interior and reasonably airy outside tables. And when I asked for a carafe of cold water, they brought me a bowl full of ice for the water. The wine and beer came reasonably quickly; but the service for the starters and mains was very slow. We didn't mind too much as we were not in a hurry; and there was plenty on the Rue de la Harpe to entertain us.
The food was inconsistent: my wife's quiche lorraine was quite tastelss, but my escargots were fine, as were my steak and fries. The fish of the day was very good. Desserts were standard. Reasonably good value for money (12 euro and 16 euro menus). Was an error in the bill, which was corrected in good humour. Perhaps they should spend more time on improving the service, and less on trying to lure people in. Most of the restaurants around here do this, so you cannot blame them, though.

I broke my own rule to not eat someplace where someone is out front trying to entice you in. We both asked for the 3 course 10 euro menu for lunch but were told the 3 course was 12 euro. Since we only wanted a small lunch anyway we accepted that but all the other nearby restaurants explicitly offer 3 courses for 10. The food was edible but not particularly enjoyable. Pick another spot. Oh yes, service was slow.

We went here for our last night in Paris for a nice meal, the waiter seemed OK at the start but then sat us on this Hideous table and wouldn't let us sit where we wanted. Later we moved to another table only to see he had offered the seats we asked for to another couple. We ordered the 12€ meal which was terrible. The onion soup was burnt and bland with barely any onions. The mussels were tasteless and the bolognese didn't taste right at all. It had barely any meat sauce and tasted like a kebab with old Parmesan cheese that was sweaty and hard. The 'fresh' fruit salad seemed like it had been filled with water and sitting in the fridge for days.
Would not recommend.

It's difficult to decide which restaurant to enter once u r on this food street so finding this one quite full we presumed it to be good. The owners serve u the food and don't like it if u find fault in anything. The 3 course dinner starts from $10 and goes up to $18. We had frogs legs as appetizer , duck confit and cream caramel which was quite good.

To sum up. We had a good dining experience. The staff is very friendly and nice, they try to speak your language and they're interested in giving you a good dinner ambient. The food was OK, nothing great, but good quantity and fair price.
