With a reasonably priced set menu at €39, this is an ideal spot for a relaxed meal after the Louvre. Natural light streams through the restaurant, and a broad, curved staircase leads to a spacious upstairs salon. It's also a hit with vegetarians: chef Gunther Janicot whips up a meatless prix-fixe menu with two starter and two main course options—perhaps summer vegetables with mimolette cheese, followed by minipasta with wild mushrooms, herbs, and artichoke (though his efforts can be hit-or-miss). Meat lovers might sink their teeth into farmer's lamb with confit vegetables and mousseline potatoes. The wine list spotlights little-known producers alongside the big names—as befits this sister restaurant to Willi's Wine Bar.

The vegetarian menu is perfect for a light lunch, fine and tasty. The other dishes mix the classic French cuisine with an exotic touch, but always in a balanced way.
