The menu is diverse (pasta is listed alongside lamb cutlets, designer salads, quesadillas and Turkish flatbreads) and yet the establishment has become known for great food that keeps people returning time and again. This outlet has the same menu that made all the other branches famous, but includes its own specials like salmon in various guises (ceviche, tartare, carpaccio) as well as soft-shell crab served with creamy mayo. They do some of the best breakfasts in town: try the potato rösti topped with bacon, roasted baby tomatoes, rocket and a poached egg. The emphasis is on healthy options like freshly squeezed juices and smoothies, fresh herbs and organic eggs.Wine:
A good and compact wine list, as well as classic cocktails and champers by the glass.Service:
Efficient and friendly.Ambience:

The cappuccinos are among the best in town. (JW, October 2011)

Shocking shocking shocking! I live in Paris and just called the restaurant to make a reservation for myself and 16 friends on Saturday evening. They refused to help me and told me that I must arrive at 6pm to get a table or else if the restaurant is busy, I would need "to wait on the queue" along with my 16 friends. Shocked!
Phew what a mighty disappointing afternoon service wise! From the door to the floor! Sunday afternoon you really can tell when the cat's away here, the rats come out and screw it all up. At these premiums it's inexcusable - it's not our problem that there's a shift change blah blah blah...
Food still a winner though! Will come back during patrol time.
