    What a great unassuming little restaurant this is This was an absolute joy for our friends who had spent 5 days in Paris unable to find a decent meal. As well for us this was the first visit to this well rated and deserved eatery. The staff were very helpful. The choice of wine was superb the food we ordered was excellent. We really couldn’t fault anything. The croquests, spicy meatballs, 4 cheeses potatoes charcuterie platter and the Spanish gyoza were sensational. Our friend who’s an avid Japanese food lover declared these were one of the best gyixa he has ever tasted Definitely worth a visit, highly recommended

    The atmosphere was small and intimate. They have a great wine selection. They also had an English menu and spoke good English. Our food was very tasty! It’s a good find

    The patrona was alone and a bit stressed, but still was charming and did a good job. Food was great.

    The meal we had was really disappointing. From reviews, we had greater expectations. Most restaurants in the area were closed for summer holiday, there was no crowd, only us and one more table. Even though the hostess/waitress tried really hard to please us, she could do nothing about the food. One of the main courses (fish) was not cooked and served almost raw. We had to send it back. They were nice not to include it in the bill. After showing our surprise at the food quality, the waitress told us that it is the chef substitute working in the kitchen, as the main chef if on vacation. Waste of time and money.

    Expensive for what they offer. Service tends to give too much advice on everything, which is unwelcomed. They should focus on waitering tables attentively and only provide info when asked. I also found the menu a bit confusing with what look like Spanish recipes dressed up with some Asian additions. Not to my taste to modify authentic and successful traditional recipes by adding new flavours. Chef if you want to innovate create something completely different instead of adding wasaby sauce to traditional recipes and so on...all in all I would not recomment this place to people who cook themselves and appreciate good quality food.

    Very good food and wine, a small location with a pleasant atmosphere where you can spend a good time and have a nice conversation. The personnel is professional.
