We had an after work and was really nice. We tried a lot of things and some of them were really tasty. The fried calamari, the shrimps and croquette of chorizo were my favorite. Really good time.

After the recent reviews, we were somewhat nervous about the restaurant. It was a very nice neighbourhood restaurant and the quality of the food was good. Our server was very pleasant and treated us well. Two of us at the table shared the duck, which seems to be their signature dish.

I have been coming to this restaurant every summer for five years. The experience has always been top flight in terms of food and service. Tonight's experience was beyond disappointing. The service was near non existent despite the restaurant being practically empty. There was a complete lack of attentiveness. I had to go up to the bar several times to... More

We were there for dinner during a conference. The open wine was okay but nothing special. We were wondering why only few guests received the "amuse geule". We ask the waitress why we didn't get it as well: it is only for guests taking an aperitif. Since this question the waitress wasn't anymore very friendly to us. The dorade and... More

I understand your bad feeling and really apologize. We do not want make any difference between french and foreign people ( by the way we had 25 people of Northern Europe the same dinner and they say it was great). If you didn't have the "amuse gueule", it was just because you didn't order aperitif. If you didn't receive the... More

We had this restaurant recommended to us by some friends who had been. Upon entering the staff could not have been nicer. Very patient explaining wine and food to us. We ordered the Duck, cooked really well and quite good. Presentation was great and the wine we selected came from the same region as the duck itself. All in all... More

Having carefully considered our dinner reservation we were put off on entry by the strong unpleasant smell of the place, something like urine. Our hopes were high that we had found an authentic Gem as we were the only non-French diners. Unfortunately the service was adequate if unremarkable, to be honest the service made us feel like second class guests.... More

Wow, what can I say?! I LOVED Afaria! When travelling to Paris, I was a little worried because I am a very finicky eater. My boyfriend selected Afaria for dinner one night because I had mentioned wanting to "live a little" and try duck. I am so glad he found this gem! The entire experience was wonderful! When we arrived,... More

We were staying in a hotel nearby and booked a table here at the last minute for my husband's birthday via Trip Advisor. What a lovely friendly welcome when we arrived! The staff were friendly and attentive, and helped us to choose a wine for our meal. We told the waitress it was my husband's birthday and with the desert... More

This restaurant serves exquisite simple French cuisine that was packed with flavour and a delight to the eye as well as the stomach! The service is fantastic, the staff friendly, multilingual and ever helpful. The restaurant was full, on the evening we dined there and it had a warm, friendly, family feeling. We went for the Artichoke and Comte Terrine... More

Walking around our neighbourhood in the 15th arrondissement of Paris looking for somewhere to have dinner, we came across Afaria which, to our great delight, had a late cancellation so place for three. We were in for a pleasant surprise. Afaria has great food - we started with mushroom soup, artichoke terrine and salmon tartare and followed that with duck... More
