I ordered salmon as main dish , It wasn't tasty at all, small and dried. Not worth the money!! I do not recommend it.

Popped in here on our first day in Paris. Inexpensive for meat with vegetables included. Friendly, young staff who spoke some English. My roast chicken was tasty and filling. Seating is spacious and comfortable.

Service was amazing, waiter was very forgiving of our awful attempt at French and spoke to us in English. He never stopped smiling. Food was to die for. My boyfriend still talks about the steal he ate here and it's been 9 months!! The starter...More

We were there for dinner. A combo with meal and dessert. We eat Faux-File and Le Burger - both were very good and tasty. As dessert, we eat créme brulée and Mousse Chocolate - also perfect. I recommend.
