Visited this restaurant for dinner and was very impressed. We had the pork with ratatouille which was delicious.Followed up with the tiramisu and Nutella and Brioche with salted caramel and ice cream, absolutely superb. Quick service and nice food. Definitely worth a visit

The food was excellent. Not necessarily the best view of the Arc de Triomphe, but the food made up for everything.
