We came here for a birthday meal looking for a good value lunch of steak and fries. The restaurant chain provides reasonably priced menus and good quality dishes. We ate our fill and left satisfied without paying an arm and a leg. A good choice for a family lunch close to the local shopping streets

Ate alone one one night so took a steak at hippotomus close to hotel. Ordered a Charleroi steak, cooked exactly as I ordered. Service was quite slow. Side dish of potatoes was awful, just a mush. Considering that the standard option is fries, I wish I hadn't 'upgraded' to the other side dish. Could be much better considering that the... More

If you like overdone steak and overcooked green beans that fall apart on the fork, this is a place you will enjoy. Otherwise, you can get a better steak almost anywhere else in Paris, except, probably, another Hippopotamus restaurant.

I didn't expect much of this chain restaurant and my low expectations have been met. I liked the Tzatziki Saumon as a starter. The rest of the meal was of very acceptable quality and reasonably priced.

We went to hippopotamus looking for a huge slice of prime beef. Sadly the beef was very small, undercooked and overpriced. The sides were plain with no creativity and the wine was very expensive considering the quality. Our order was forgotten for desert and no apology given. Despite this the beef was good quality but I would not eat here... More

Good steak house in vicinity of Arch de Triomph. Popular Chain restaurant. Very crowded on Friday evening. Steak is good and worth waiting for. Service is a bit slow due to overcrowded, but generally the waitress is very attentive and try to do their best to serve the customer.

Restaurant was a couple of doors down from my hotel. Looked busy, normally a good sign. Great welcome from the manager on duty. Seated and served within minutes. Great value food and drinks (cocktails only €5), Waitress was friendly and service was very quick, food was great. I was in and out in less than 45 minutes. Would definitely come... More

My family and I went to this restaurant on our first night when we arrived in Paris. The food was rather plain; the fish was hard and flavourless and the steak was average. The drinks are not cheap too, but set meals were quite worth. The waiter who served us was very friendly, asking us about our vacation and helping... More

Basic but good French steakhouse chain restaurant, consistent well priced and basically you cant go wrong if you stick to the basics. This is not the place for special occasion or if you are in Paris for just a few days.
