  • The place is really cosy and it has the Parisian charm. The cocktails are really good and surprisingly not too expensive. The food was decent too, we had dinner on our last night in Paris and we tried gourmet burgers and steak. The menu is really easy to read, as they have several language on the menu board. The prices are not as high as the rest of Paris. The location is really convenient, as it is just opposite Gare du Nord Rail Station. The staff was really friendly, as we were regular customers during the week. They always treated us very well.
  • The waiter war very helpful and nice. The breakfast was not the best quality.
  • Fine place that's close to the train, you'd do better walking a few more blocks
  • Excellent menu du jour at lunchtime, nice service, always a dead cert for lunch before catching the train home. No frills, does what it says on the tin.
  • Very good food and lovely service !😄
