The waiters/waitresses were a really joyful bunch but there was honestly nothing too special about the menu. Nice local-y atmosphere though.

We travelled to Paris and we wanted to try the real Paris cuisine with a cozy traditional environment, chilling atmosphere and professional but friendly service. The received treatment was simply amazing! We have been welcomed with a bottle of vin rouge and some very tasty bites. A proper aperitif experience. Then we had some main courses with a very good selection of cheeses to conclude with some desserts tasting. Quality of food was top and the whole experience was very enjoyable. Definitely a place to come back again. Recommended!

Speaking no french and being in a non-touristy part of Paris can be a little intimidating. Doing things like reading a menu, ordering, etc, isn't always easy. That being said, the folks that ran this restaurant were very helpful and accommodating to us. My friend and I stopped here a couple times as it was right next to our hotel. A lot of locals eat here (which is usually a good sign) and from what I gather this is pretty common, "every day", type of French food. Her and I had the streak and fries a couple times, hamburger, and raviolis. Along with some Heineken (good thing you say that the same in every language) and wine. All of it was good. We had the same waitress both times and she was awesome. She didn't speak much English (more than I can say about our french), but she was very friendly and helped us out as best as she could (I cannot recall the name unfortunately).

Great little bistro just opposite the Metro stop of Avron. Anytime we passed to go to or from our nearby hotel, the bistro was busy. We enjoyed several drinks on the pavement tables and were impressed by the service and atmosphere each time. The food was good quality and reasonable for Paris - the chacuterie boards with bread were particularly enjoyable.
