Rating: Touristy, but delicious
Wanting something casual, but ignoring Tripadvisor, we found this well rated street cafe/bistro.
Yeah, it appears a bit touristy, and the menu is “classic” but execution is quite good.
The classic Paris street-side seating.
A glass of Chablis.
Tools for the snails.
Onion Soup. Also classic, but a very good cheesy/bready soup.
More bread — useful for dipping up the garlic butter from the snails.
Beef Tartare and fries.
There was actually a choice of Tartare style, the old pure French barely adorned style and this slightly newer “Italian” style with arugula and Parmesan.
French Fries. Really good thin crispy fries.
I was surprised how good the food was. I actually just wanted to order these obvious French favorites as a benchmark and they didn’t disappoint. Each of them was pretty much a perfect example of what it was.
Service was brusk but extremely efficient.
