We came upon this restaurant by accident on our way to the metro. It was near an apartment where we were staying on rue cherche du midi.

We were greated warmly by Soni, an excellent and patient server. However, it is the food that is the star of the restaurant. My wife had duck. I had salmon after two unusual starters. All meals cooked to order. The portions are very ample and the atmosphere is cozy. It is a very small place, and it might be wise to book ahead. The price is about 25 euros or so for two very nice sized portions

It is not far from Montparnesse station and near several metro stops---Duroc and Montparness-bienvenue.I can't wait to return.

I went to this place by chance for dinner with some friends and it was a delightful and unexpected experience. It is placed at the unfashionable end of rue de Cherche Midi, across boulevard Montparnasse, looking out at a rather unexciting wall over the road. The menu is small and the place is tiny with clean white decor. Food is good, above average for a very modest price by Paris standards. Mainly classic French but with a couple of unusual things - I had ostrich steak with a spicy peanut dressing which was very unusual and absolutely delicious. The lady who served us was delightful and very patient with our ill-disciplined group. A really nice evening and so unexpected.

Hello everyone,

My girlfriend and I had decided to travel to Paris and experince the city and it's New Years Eve atmosphere. For the New Years Eve Dinner we searched the Internet for at good local restaurant - but what we found would turn out to be greater than that!

With high expectations for our New Years Eve in Paris we set out to find the restaurant. We took the subway half the way and wanted to walk the rest of the way. The restaurant is first of all in walking distance from several subwaystations. Furthermore, it's close to Pont Neuf and the Seine as well as to the Eiffel Tower. Also close to other sights in Paris. It took us a little time to find the restaurant because the road "Rue du Cherche Midi" looks quite deserted and desolate - but remember not to judge the road.

The facade of the restaurant is simpel and not in any way to much, which we are convinced must be the theme for the little and very cosy restaurant. The menu of six diches was cooked to perfection and combined with a very helpful and friendly staff, the whole experience reached the top as well. The staff had picked different wines to match the dish and not just one. Nice little move. During the dining they we're very interested in making sure that everything was okay and met our needs.

The restaurants capacity is 22 people and might be a little to small for some people. For us it just added to the experience. It felt very much like a larger family dinner and with the low background music it all played a vital part in the restaurant. We left the restaurant just in time for the lights to be turned on, on the Eiffel tower and unfortunately missed the coffee and pastry. Im not sure that we could eat any more. The staff was not in a rush and had the time to make us feel satisfied. The food came in just the right timing, for the previous dish to settle in our stomachs. All the diches tasted great!!!

A french local told us, that out of the three aspects "Quality, Quantaty and price", it is rare to find all three in the same restaurant in Paris. But after the visit at "Les Colock" we are very sure that we found one of them. Because "Les Colock" have all three!!

Thank you Sonia (our waiter) for an unforgettable dinnerexperience.

Best regards,
Thomas Renneberg & Ida Lindahl (Denmark)
