Whether or not you’ve seen it listed in your Zagat or Tripadviser, be prepared for a culinary exploration, in an upscale ambiance (they are close to the National Assembly after all, so you may run into a few state ministers) of great produce and a reasonable price to match. They have a very rich and varied wine selection with an in-house Sommelier.

I was joking with my friend that I felt s bit under dressed without a jacket vest as so many people seemed to have been wearing one – of course I learnt later that is normal. Most of them are elite french locals or members of the french parliament and guests and a few tourists that were sent by their luxury concierge from the luxury hotels near by.

At night it becomes a more romantic location for dinner for two.  We shared an outstanding meal with many pleasant surprises – there is simply no criticism that comes to mind!
