Everything we ate and drank was delicious, accomplished, unpretentiousness and reasonably priced. We ordered a la carte:...More

The restaurant specialises in game, so October is the perfect month to go to it. It offers a very good value set price menu at 34 euros for four courses (including a cheese course). Wine is extra, but also reasonably priced. I had a home-made...More

The four-course prix fixe menu at 35 euros/pp was a great bargain. The food was tasty and the portions were incredibly generous. The juicy escargots in green pesto sauce came out piping hot and you got 12 of them instead of the usual 6. I...More

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

No. But I suppose you can order a salad anywhere, Try the tourist bureau near the Hotel De ville they had a book (free) on vegetarian/egan restaurants when I was there in July.
