Established first in 1832 in the Les Halles quarter, this restaurant has stood at the very same location since 1879 where it is still today. It has witnessed the Belle Epoque, the Roaring 20s, two wars and all the decades since while dishing up its famous Normandy-origin cuisine to its loyal customers. Ornate painted mirrors, aged wood and molten glass add to the historical ambiance of this traditional restaurant. Dining rooms are both upstairs and downstairs with 5 smaller rooms you can privatize for small parties and receptions. The menu includes favorite dishes served in the Normandy countryside such as housemade andouillette and boudin (blood sausage) but there's also lighter fare on offer such as scallops for seafood lovers and tender chicken breast prepared with apple cider.
