Tucked away in a particularly charming corner in the Marais, this loud, lively – and cramped – Provencal restaurant is the place to go for an excellent meal and a good time. You might have a difficult time deciding between delights such as the chèvre spinach salad, stuffed peppers, mussels Provencal, thyme-crusted lamb, and ratatouille, but don't worry – it'd be hard to choose wrong. The service here can be hit-or-miss, but the superiority of the chocolate mousse goes a long way toward making up for an imperfect server. Terrace dining available. Reservations strongly recommended.

  This is a great traditional French neighborhood restaurant. Busy, loud, crowded, as expected! The service and food was superb, and we had no wait for our table. The menu is in French, so look at it online prior to going. The waiters, though, all speak English very well, in spite of what some of the reviews say, and are very pleasant and helpful in spite of being busy. The Chocolate Mousse that they are so famous for is excellent, so don't miss that at the end of your dinner. This is definitely a little gem of a place to go in Paris! Just be sure to make reservations (as early as possible, dinner starts at 8 PM and it quickly gets very crowded)!...   Read More
