This is indeed the best meat in Paris. I believe I read on another blog that Robert died, but Louise is still at it, at an incredible age. Do you know if that's true?


I have a serious problem with this restaurant, for many reasons. Let me explain. My biggest problem is that it is the absolute tourist trap but pretends not to be one. Yes, there is a wood burning fire place, in a tiny stone built restaurant at the beautiful marais area of paris. that is pretty much the only plus this restaurant has going for it – its location. But then again there are incredibly good restaurants at the marais, so why go for this one? The meat they throw on the grill is absolutely tasteless which makes me think that they don’t prepare it in any way before 'cooking' it. When it came at our table it was already cold and eventhough they ask how you would like it cooked, all tables get more or less the same tasteless, cold, raw ribs on their table, served with a salad and potatoes that lack any kind of imagination. The wine tasted like vinegar and the owner was incredibly rude (even for a parisian). If you make the unfortunate decision of going at least save yourself the desserts experience – to put it simply, they are bad. I would not go back to this resstaurant even if 'Robert' offered me a free meal!
