My family and I stopped during a nice walk along the canal. Service was very friendly and I ordered l'azteque, which was super tasty. I definitely recommend it for lunch if you are in the area

Small and cute. Service was friendly and our food came quickly. Their selection of croques all sounded so good it was hard to make a decision. Really glad we stopped in here.

It doesnt matter what you order all the dishes are delicious! They serve simple Toasted sandwiches but what they fill them with is out of this world perfectly cooked flavoursome fillings. Oh and the French Toast was delicious too!

We spent a week exploring France and did not have the chance to try a croquet monsieur until Fric-Frac (we ate a ton of delicious food though!). This restaurant did not disappoint! Our hotel staff recommended it, as we were in walking distance to Canal...More

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
