Great food, convenient location, rustic charm and a friendly staff – this restaurant has it all.
The menu has a good mix of traditional French cuisine with some worldwide standards like steak. Served very rarely cooked, the salmon appetizer is light and delicious. Although some revues claimed the onion soup here was incredible, it was good but there are definitely better places in France, and even Paris, to get onion soup. The beef cheeks in a red glaze are a great, hearty main course. The carafes of house are also a very good deal here so skip the bottles of wine and chug the house special.
When you walk into the small restaurant you will be sure to be a bit surprised by the small, quaint feel of the restaurant. With a piano player by the door and an incredible, rustic charm you immediately feel comfortable in the intimate atmosphere. The upstairs is equally charming but watch your head! The ceilings are extremely low. There is also an outside area which is perfect for a warm Paris evening.
Where and when to go
The restaurant is located in the Châtelet near the Pont Neuf. The hotel can be reached by the metro at Châtelet – Avenue Victoria. The restaurant, as many in Paris, opens later on and can often times fill up quickly so you may want to call ahead for reservations.
