Simple, clean, fast, attentive. Food is good with nice flavours. The portions are good sizes. And price was perfectly fine. It's not high French cuisine. But the place has a friendly modern atmosphere. I would come back here. For the price it's very good.

We arrived at Gare de Lyon at lunchtime, and went looking for a nice restaurant away from the immediate station area. This restaurant had some nice tables towards the front, and so we went it. We didn't realise that it was Moroccan/Tunisian when we went...More

Areas around major railway stations are always a bit of a challenge, so I immediately headed away from the immediate area around Hare de Lyon to get a meal and order an Uber. Checked out a few places and liked the look of Chez Leon....More

The meals are wonderful and generous. The chicken tangine was very flavorful and spicy. We have always had a great meal the numerous times we have eaten here.

Had our first dinner here while in Paris, made easier with the English menu provided when you ask for it. Service was very good and they were very attentive to your needs. I had a salmon dinner that included dessert and it was reasonably priced....More

Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
