The 6 of us walked in 'early' by French standards, at about 7pm for dinner. Our hope was we would beat the St. Valentine's Day crowds. We did, and by the time we left at 9pm, the place was full. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was nice, but not stuffy and the prices fair. I wouldn't say it's a place to really go out of your way to find in a city so full of excellent restaurants, but if you're in the neighborhood, this is a very good choice.

At the end of a long first day in Paris after an overseas flight from the US I had dinner here. I was tired and this place was awesome. I was the first one there since I knew I couldn't stay up late. By the time I left it was filing up so reservations would probably be good if you have a group. The server was very nice to me although she didn't speak much English and my French is poor, but we communicated great. I talked her through how to make a gin and tonic ....with a lime. She was very patient with me. I had several of what I would describe as small plates...one was calamari and another of marinated salmon as well as a cheese plate...and of course wine. It is a very nice and warm place on a quite side street. I would highly recommend it.

We went with four friends and it was a really good experience. The place is small, so you should book a table. Food was excellent, everything I was expecting from French cuisine.

The food, more typical Spanish than French from my point of view, was really good. We really enjoyed and at a cheap price. But the venue was very noisy to speak to my friends. But I'd recommend this restaurant for sure! Good atmosphere!
