Our evening here was most enjoyable.
The bistro is traditionally French in decor and the cuisine.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating and were happy to engage with us and answered any questions happily.
We shared the fois gras for starters and it was plated individually and beautifully presented. We both drank wine from the extensive list . I opted for champagne.
For main I enjoyed the salmon and was able to combine it with the Paris mash and egg from another fish dish on the menu.
My husband chose the veal and declared that it was the ‘best meal that I have eaten since leaving home two weeks ago’
We elected not to have dessert next time we must try this instead of a starter.
We’ll add this to our list of places to dine in Paris .

This restaurant was the first one we went to in Paris after having traveled the French countryside. It was typically Parisian...beautifully decorated, with a cafe outside. Our waiter had spent several years in America so that was very helpful. He had a great sense of humor and guided us about the menu. We had a white beaujolais, which to us, as wine novices was interesting and tasted great. We are used to beaujolais nouveau that comes out yearly in a specific time. Anyway, cannot remember what we had to eat for the main course except that it was very good. The appetizer we had were these interesting mushrooms...tiny with small mushrooms caps that were okay. But the shock we had at time to pay was the price...23 euros each. They were among “the specials”. We were not happy about that. While it was our responsibility to ask about the price, generally they are posted somewhere. Wewere shocked, but paid without complaint. That, for us made an unpleasant experience out of, what could have been an excellent experience because the food was quite good.

Great situation near the Seine and the musee d'dorsay, this is a traditional French restaurant that ticks all the boxes. Friendly and helpful service and good menu. Food is excellent as is the wine. Did not try any beer. Highly recommended but best to book as it is very popular.

Food was really excellent and the service also. The atmosphere and decor complement the experience. And the location is, of course, fantastic

Just along from the musee d'orsay and by the river this is a typical French bistro serving excellent food, great wine and excellent service. A popular restaurant so probably best to book. I went on a Wednesday evening and it was almost full. I had the haddock that was very tasty. Highly recommended.
