I liked the look of this modest restaurant around the corner from our AirBNB; and we were glad to try it. Decorated in amusing art, photos and ethnic dress, it has the feel of a family-run business, keeping the authenticity of a culture and it’s food, married to the demands of the Parisian restaurant market.
We split a mixed appetizer and then each had a main. My leek raviolis with a mixture of lentils and ground beef was simple, and really very delicious, and tasted similar but not quite like anything I’ve ever tasted before. I love to try new dishes!
My better half had a tender stewed beef or lamb (I forget which), on top of some rice with an egg on top. He liked it. The place was nicely busy, and I think we were probably lucky to have gotten a table, arriving just at 8pm, when it opened, but without a reservation. The waiters had good beards. With our dinner washed down with a carafe of reasonably priced wine, we give this place a solid thumbs up!
