  • This place holds great memories for me. I came here almost every night during my time in Paris. I met so many people and the staff soon came to recognize me and were always so pleasant. I always got La Soupe de Poisson and it was always lovely. I miss this place and it will always be a big portion of my memories of Paris.
  • I love it dinner and eau bien perfect. I am see confused? Clear I am like it things and amour jose hug moi
  • Expensive and not very good. Near the station but not much else to offer, I wouldn't recommend
  • Good place to enjoy a glass of wine before taking the train.
  • THE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE VERY RUDE AND LOUD PLEASE DON'T GO! I REGRET THAT I DID NOT READ REFERENCES IN ADVANCE. OTHERWISE YOUR LUGGAGE CAN BE WET AND YOU WILL NEVER BE APOLOGIZIED.
