Small, simple, great food. Either dine inside or outside (sidewalk). Owned and run by a family, the food is both simple and sophisticated. Great desserts and not expensive.

I was staying in the 13th in March, my 12th visit to France. Lured by the nice appearance of this little restaurant near my hotel, I was very disappointed by many things. Backless benches are not the most comfortable seating, especially when you have been walking all day and want to relax. I had to ask our waiter to replace our glasses, as they were dirty. My overall impression is that the flavorless food was their effort to stray from French food and deliver something more modern, but I can get bad American food right here in the states. (Excellent American food, too, and good French food!) My goat cheese appetizer was super cold, as though it had just come out of the refrigerator my penne dish lacked flavor, and the bread was not the delicious French bread I was expecting. Again, a disappointment. Maybe the locals who want something trendy and new are happy for a little diversion, but I think they could have done better than this. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

They had really nice food, the risotto was probably the best I've tasted. Great service, really nice waiter. A bit warm inside and even though its small, the lack of tapestries makes the sound inside kind of "eco-y" and a bit loud.
