Stopped in to eat because we arrived into town fairly late and it was right by the hotel. Our food and service was good. I ordered the lasagna and my husband had a carbonara dish. Would recommend both!

An average-price restaurant conveniently located just 5 minutes away from Notre-Dame de Paris. Big portions, tasty food an good wine. The floor managing lady was very professional helping regular waiters with all the clients in the restaurant

The food here was good, not great but good, wasn’t overly priced either. We couldn’t believe how fast the food came though especially for a Friday night and it was happy hour! The service was the star here, waiter Olivier was very good!
