Our server was a delightfully friendly young man who was happy to serve us a beer in the outdoor seating area. The complementary nuts were a nice touch and the experience made for a good memory of our last evening in Paris.

Been there on a calm week night. Not many people inside, only regulars. The waiters were friendly, but the food was nothing to write home about. I do not doubt they use fresh ingredients and cook everything on demand, but this is no excuse for...More

Came here for lunch whilst waiting for a hotel check in. Service was awful - all of the 'locals' received complimentary water and bread with their meal - we did not. We both had burgers, for 15 euros, you would expect something 'decent'. It was...More

Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
