Review: Myself and my girlfriend went here for dinner last night and it was an amazing experience. The service was impeccable and very accomodating to our limited French. The waiter who served us spoke politely and slow enough for me to understand which was a nice change from waiters who either refuse to slow down in French or convert immediately to English (we need the practice so thank you!) He explained and recommended the plat du jour which was a gourmet Falafel with a fresh, French salad which my girlfriend ordered. She really enjoyed it and said it was the best meal she's had so far in Paris. After trying it myself, I thought it was one of the best falafels i've tasted and the French Salad with a great dressing complimented it really well! I had the cous cous with a vegetable tagine which was also very nice. They served it with extra marinated raisons and a fresh, spicy tomato puree on the side. Although it didn't knock me out like the falafel did it was a very fulfilling dish, that i thought really suited the surroundings - candlelit and warm, with a great bistro style ambience. It seems like a very popular restaurant too and I think we were lucky to get a table without making a reservation. For dessert we had the zuchini and chocolate cake which also hit the mark in terms of taste. Served with thinly sliced apple, we thought at first was an unusual accompaniment but it was actually quite refreshening when combined with the rich chocolate. The prices for all of our meals were not the cheapest we've come across in exploring vegetarian Parisien restaurants, but between the two of us with two mains, a boutique French beer and a dessert to share combined with the whole experience coming under 50 E I thought was reasonable. I would definitely say this is a must visit if you're vegan/vegetarian visiting Paris. The service was the best we've found so far and the food and ambience combine for a unique and memorable night out. We would definitely go again!
