    Food was delicious- all three courses very tasty. Service however was exceptionally slow.

    wonderful lunch, even if quick as it was the first time out with our newborn. excellent confit de canard that we both ate, very nice entree of the day with morille mushrooms that are in season. we particularly appreciated the staff's efforts on accommodating our stroller so that the little one could be close to us. we recommend!

    The food was good but nothing “wow”. The restaurant is too big, and it was too crowded and noisy, so if you are looking for something more intimate, this is not the place to go. We ordered the saumon tartare as a starter (well... it was ok....), the cod fish and duck as a main dish (they were good, the duck specially) and as a dessert the crepe (i dont recommend, it was kind of tasteless). The servers were polite. It wasn’t bad, but I would’t go back.

    The service was the worst I have had in Paris so far. Regardless of the fact that I have made this booking well in advance, and have called 2hrs before to confirm the booking, we stood outside the restaurant for about 20 mins before being tended to. The restaurant was really not that full or busy. The bill was a complete mess and had to be re-done three times before it was accurate. There was another table that had gotten up halfway through their meal screaming and shouting at the staff - not pleasant. We were four people, the one person ordered duck, it arrived at the end of our meals - no apology was given. I definitely would not recommend this restaurant.

    Nice service even though the restaurant was full. The dinner was nice but some dishes were under the expectations. Nice place and atmosphere also for couples.

    Happy to discover this place! Very friendly and casual ambiance, clean and a great room with old walls and maps of the world. I had the daily special (red mullet with leek and curry sauce) plus a dessert of 3 different crème brûlées. Good food and good price/value! Will come back when I‘m in Paris.

    It's not my first time here and, as usual I was really satisfied! Cozy place, welcoming staff and good kitchen! Without the The Fork discount it can be a little expansive, thought, but the area is very chic!

    I was hoping for a really pleasant evening, given the high ratings for this restaurant on The Fork. The food was disappointing, and the ambiance nothing special. There are better choices in this price range.

About the restaurant

"The restaurant La Boussole welcomes you in its stonewall room and beamed ceilings.

On the road to the spices from the East to the West, from North to South, during our trips, La Boussole has brought back unexploited flavors home: Tonka beans, Sarawak pepper, Raz-el-Hanouts... contributing to reinvent traditional cuisine.

In the image of spices, this warm and atypical place will inspire you with a breath of exoticism."
