We were very fortunate to have stumbled on this gem. Traditional country French cooking -- no prevention. Family style seating, great service and absolutely fabulous food -- huge flavour. The Duck Confit was melt in your mouth gorgeous! Prices are very reasonable. A must!

A tiny, very French, neighborhood bistro. Or is it a cafe? Who cares - the food is delicious and very reasonable. And so is the wine. Sit with strangers and soak in the atmosphere while you make friends.

squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
