Fodor's Review

Warm and authentic, this bustling little bistro near the Musée Picasso offers a convivial slice of Parisian life—and excellent value. Here traditional French bistro fare is adapted to a modern audience, and the best choices are the old tried-and-trues: hand-cut tartare de boeuf; rare entrecôte served with a side of golden-crisp frites and homemade béarnaise; and the classic parmentier with pheasant instead of the usual ground beef. Portions are ample, but save room for dessert: old-style favorites like diplomate aux cherises, a rum-soaked, cherry-laden sponge cake, or the terrine de chocolate with crème Anglaise are not to be missed. The €17 lunch menu is a bargain.
