the food here is good, but to be honest it's not cheap. You are here just on one of the cornering streets to the prime minister's office "Hotel Matignon". and the price tag reflects the location. Besides from that good food, good wines. Recommended.

Great food and wine, professional service. Good choice in every aspect, we shared a goats cheese salad as a starter and then had tuna and beef tartar, all of which were excellent. The service was fast. The rosé fitted well to the food.

Once again, we had a café on "the comptoir" for 1€, what a bargain, and a typical "parisienne" atmosphere, but with a real smile and fluent English!

We did not eat breakfast there. I'm not sure it's open for breakfast. At Hotel Pont Royal the breakfast is wonderful!

I have seen dogs there but it is not really a patio. It is more a row of small table and seats each side. Rue de Bac is a busy place and your dog would have to be well behaved to avoid being trod on by pedestrians!
