One of the first restaurants I tried during my 2 month holiday in Paris. This old-school bistro makes the best Beef Bourguignon that I have ever tasted! The meat was very tender and the thick stew was perfectly seasoned. Since I was there for lunch, I opted for the smaller portion of Bourguignon. After my first bite, I regretted not getting the larger portion.
The Duck Confit was outstanding as well.
The Grand Marnier Soufflé came with a shot of Grand Marnier! The soufflé was very light and airy, but I found the liqueur to be a bit too overpowering.
Verdict: AAA; My favorite classic French Bistro in Paris
