First Review by MBermingham

Incredible! - Edit

This place is so cool! Loved my traditional French food cooked to perfection. My boyfriend (also newly vegan) is Parisian and he was really shocked at how good the dishes were. I also had a a cocktail of fresh vegetable juices and a glass of vegan red wine.

Super friendly staff and the restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and Ian dog friendly too for little dogs as the place is quite small.

Top tip is to book ahead as they are always busy! We were lucky to find a table without booking but normally this isn't the case.

The dishes were generous and really tasty and everything is also organic too!

This is now my favourite restaurant in Paris!

Pros: Traditional French food in gorgeous location, Wonderful service, Really tasty meals!

Cons: None! But reserve a table as it's that good!!!

expensive but tasty - Edit

I had a great dinner here back in April. My favourite thing was the french onion soup, the cheese and the bread were so well done. I also liked the seitan goulash in red wine or however it was called and the cakes were also very tasty. It is a small space though so you feel a bit cramped but I would go back again. It is fairly expensive though.

Pros: tasty

Cons: small space, expensive

Food is great but...expect hostility - Edit

First off, let me begin by saying that the food here is amazing! However, one of the male servers actually yelled and got into the face one of a young lady at my table. There was a slight misunderstanding about the number of our party. When we politely tried to notify the waiter, in fluent French, he began to yell and cause at scene at the restaurant. It was horrible and beyond embarrassing for the entire table. I tried to come back again, eager to give the place another chance... Unfortunately, this did not go well either. My boyfriend and I were waiting in line to enter the restaurant when it opened. The same server was there. We patiently waited in line behind other guests. After the lady in front of us had been turned away for a table of 4, we asked if there was room for a table for 2. The server offered us a table and the lady who was just turned away began to make a scene and roll her eyes. The server again yelled at everyone to get in an orderly line and all became chaos. I’d give the food 5 stars, but my experience with the staff and other guests was beyond hostile.

nichts besonderes - Edit

Sehr klein und familiär, wir hatten vorab reserviert. Schneller Service allerdings war das Essen teilweise kalt oder verbrannt. Durch das Warmhalten in der Küche war alles sehr zerkocht.

Pros: rein vegan, netter schneller Service

Cons: verhältnismäßig teuer, Essen okay aber nichts beso

Not impressive, overpriced - Edit

The general idea of the restaurant is to serve French traditional cuisine revisited in a vegan fashion: it is sadly mostly revisited in a tasteless style. And the prices and two high for the quality of the food. There are many better options in Paris!

Pros: Location, Friendly staff

Cons: Tasteless, Overpriced

So French - Edit

If you want to try typically French food, this is the place for you. For my main dish I had a mock beef, which was good but the absolute star of the meal was the French onion soup. Worth going for that alone!

Pros: Delicious and French!

Wonderful! - Edit

This was my second vist and it was just as good as the first. The staff are so nice and helpful. They speak English so well. The food was really great, real French style cuisine and don't forget dessert! I had a cereal coffee (which is great as I couldn't have caffine) with dessert (chocolate mousse, of course!) and it really hit the spot. Loved it! Great place!

Pros: totally vegan and some g/f options

Nice and cosy - Edit

I got the crispy quinoa burger with grilled vegetables and tofu, however, there was no tofu.
It was still really good.
The mushroom sauce was to die for!
My mom got the spinach-walnut lasagna which tasted a bit too much like spinach.
The cheese on it was amazing, though.

The restaurant was quite small, so I would recommend making a reservation before going there.
We barely managed to get a table when we came at 7 p.m.
I really liked the cosy vibe it had.

One thing that wasn't good was the apple tart.
My mom and I didn't like it, it wasn't anything special.
We would come back, but not for that dessert.

Pros: Small place, got the food quickly

Cons: Bad apple tart

one of the best places in Paris! - Edit

Not only did we enjoy a full meal with great dishes, and a very friendly service, I can positively say that any other dish would be fantastic as well.
Our favourites we're the onion soup, seitan borginion, and apple tart.

Lovely lunch! - Edit

More traditional options on menu, with vegan versions of Europeand dishes (like seitan stew, salad with vegan cheese). Loved the food, although would have like some more cheeze in the salad for example, of some more spicing.

Very friendly. Cosy little place. But a bit crowded.
Small terrace in front.

great food! - Edit

We had a great dinner there, the food was amazing and the staff was very nice. We had the vegan versions of two french classics, the onion soup and the seitan bourguignon, and also a carrot soup and a (lupin) roll, and everything was great. A bit pricey but worth it. Its very recommended to make a reservation beforehand.

Pros: fully vegan, versions of french classics

OMG - Edit

I had really high expectations for this place, which usually ends with me at least a bit disappointed (I don't know why I do this to music). But not this time. I was expecting great food and I got blew-me-out-of-my-shoes food. It was so delicious, it tasted so fresh!
My husband is usually fussy about vegan food (just for the sake of being so) absolutely loveled the food (and the dessert, and the drinks).
The place was jammed on a Thursday night, so I was really happy we booked our place (I think that's a safest option). The staff was really busy, but really nice.
It's expensive food, but it's very special food and a great experience!

Pros: Delicious food, Full vegan menu, Organic ingredients

Cons: Expensive , Portions are small

Simply Amazing - Edit

Been there with my girlfriend yesterday and it was astonishing! Never had such a good meal in years. The interieur of the restaurant is romantic, 'classically french' and fitted perfectly. We had a 3-course-menu which was tasty beyond our expectations, although it was quite pricy (which was expectable). We highly recommend the onion soup and the spinach-lasagne. We would come back to Paris just to eat there again. :)

Délicieux! - Edit

Nous avons mangé un tartare d'algues, une pomme de terre au pistou et tapenade, des lasagnes aux épinards, un bourguignon de seitan et un carrot cakes
Tout était parfait!

Lost Me Before I Could Even Get a Table - Edit

I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant. I was traveling and loved the idea of trying a vegan version of French food. It didn't seem like the waiter was too interested in having me, unfortunately. He was cleaning silverware when I came in. I waited at the door not knowing if you seat yourself or wait to be seated. He was about 10 feet away from me. He looked over at me twice and completely ignored me. After about 5 minutes, I decided that I didn't have the patience or time to deal with such service, or lack of, and left. I walked about five minutes away to Hank Vegan Burger where the staff was very friendly and helpful.

AMAZING! - Edit

I had the seitan bourguignon and creme brûlée, both my favourite dishes before turning vegan and I hadn't ate them in over two years. Both AMAZING!! Omni friend had a salad which was also delicious. Would come back to Paris purely for this amazing place.

Cons: slightly pricey but expected in Paris

a gem in the marais - Edit

Had a great meal here today. A tantalizing menu that manages to be both French and vegan, and believe me that is an incredible accomplishment. Super friendly service and cute, intimate tables.

Pros: tasty, great service, good options

Cons: too small for a large group, best for two people

worth the reservation - Edit

I've been here two times, and both times I very much enjoyed the food. The atmosphere is cozy and very charming. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. It's worth noting that my meat eating husband came with me the 2nd time and enjoyed his meal very much.
