Very good brasserie in Saint Germain. Menu has a good choice even if it does not change so much in the time. Quality is good.

We expected high prices and the snooty waiter at the door but were pleasantly surprised the table waiter could speak English. This makes it even more appalling that he didn’t warn my husband not to order andouillette. This is not, as the uninitiated would suppose,...More

Well... what an absolutely breathtaking restaurant. Me and my girlfriend visited last night and our taste buds were tantalized by quite possibly the nicest meal I have ever had in my life. The steak was cooked to perfection and the ambience was authentically French. I...More

The sauerkraut ("choucroute") main course dish, served with sausages, pork and potato (all in all a large portion), is delicious. I had the caesar salad as appetizer and cheese for dessert. The whole meal was excellent. With three glasses of superb wine, this wasn't an...More

I've been to Brasserie Balzar in 2011, and 2013. The pepper steak was good sized, juicy and the jus was delicious. I was looking to get more of the same but it seems the steak was half the size and overcooked. Technique and value has...More

Faultless meal and service. Nice ambience, not slow but not rushed. We had the rump steak and Parmentier Duck. Real old fashioned service with that certain Parisienne style and panache. Great recommendations (e.g. steak cooked medium not bien-cuit was spot-on. If you’re looking for a...More
