    SMALL! So forgive ppl who bump into you. But well worth a visit. The people working there are all really nice. The menu (tapas) is hanging from the ceiling! So cool, and not something you everyday.

  • Aurélien M.

    Des vins excellents et des plats typiques français à 3€ en tapas. Formule excellente.

  • Luiz E.

    Go with the flow... Grab a wine, just tell them what you like and they will figure it out. Camembert , codfish croquettes and ham. Be happy. You're welcome

    Esos pimientitos del padrón!!!

  • Patricia W.

    Amazingly good food and fair prices. Glass of wine 3.50 and tapas around 6 and filling. Very friendly staff. Only standing, no tables. Will be back for sure.

  • Matteo R.

    Crazy good apero place, an affordable high quality gem in Saint Germain. You'll have to stand and order things listed both on ceiling and on daily menus. Good values and friendly staff

  • Vihang M.

    Amazing crepes and sandwiches. They are huge, filling and surprisingly cheap for the quality. The stand up bar is also good. They serve some amazing fresh bread.

  • Artur S.

    Música alta, milhões de opções de vinhos em taças, comidas em pequenas porções (que infelizmente não provei). Fica aberto até tarde, é do lado do metro, não tem lugar sentado.. Puta bar

    Artur Siviero · January 6
  • Julien G.

    Favorite place for 2 years now : Wine, prosciutto, cheese, carpaccio, mushrooms... On the counter, in a small place and with a great staff! You need to tolerate noise and being very close to people 😉

    Finest. Stunning.

    Great wine & small plates. The bartenders were some of the friendliest in the city

  • Carlos F.

    Carpaccio muito bom, pouco espaçoso mas com bom serviço, preço razoável

    Carlos Fernandes · September 26, 2014
  • Ishmael V.

    Tight space. And by tight I mean really elbow to elbow tight. There is no wine list. Just point or ask for a suggestion. Also place your whole order at once. It is difficult to place orders afterwards

    Ishmael Vasquez · September 24, 2014
  • Clau S.

    O lugar mais descolado da cidade. Pra tomar um vinho em pé no balcão petiscando alta gastronomia. Peça o boudin noir, típica lingüiça de sangue de porco. Inigualável.

    Clau S · September 14, 2014
  • Iris N.

    Tasty tapas with decent prices and excellent service! House made blood sausage was delicious!! Stand-up bar and gets busy quickly towards dinner time. Cool decor with menu hanging from ceiling.

    Iris Ng · August 21, 2014

    Foie gras and blood pudding with spiced apples

    Apéro time !

  • El★na

    It's a teeny tiny little place. In fact, I could hardly get into the doorway because with 10 people inside, it's already packed. If you want a crepe and no wine or other food stand outside.

    El★na · August 7, 2014

    Artichoke and cured ham waffles; the hand-churned Bordier butter, set on the bar for everyone to share; and a wine recommendation from friendly barman Eric. Read more

    Pequeno e simpático bar. Mas comemos crepe "to go". Belíssimos os crepes por sinal.

    Amazing. Michelin star quality food. The desserts are crazy.

    Shayan Sanyal · June 7, 2014
  • Taline E.

    From noon to midnight, packed with folks ordering finger foods—ham croquettes, duck confit sausage hot dogs, fried Parmesan cheese puffs—from the drop-down ceiling menu and chalkboard daily specials.

    Taline Ekmekjian · June 5, 2014
  • Heather R.

    Lait de vache pris concombre celeri pomme for dessert is amazing. Duck hearts are a must!!

    Heather Rodriguez · May 19, 2014
  • Heather R.

    Amazing tapas. Good price, taste and wine. Try the gauffre jambon artichaut, hot foie gras with pepper, cheese with cherries and much more! Awesome place!!!

    Heather Rodriguez · May 18, 2014
  • Kate G.

    Crêpes up front and pork (Ibaïona) in the rear. Standing room only at Yves Camdeborde’s tapas and wine bar, a hit since it opened in fall of 2009. Go during the off hours. A great neighborhood option

    Kate Gold · May 11, 2014
  • Sylvain Y.

    Rien d'exceptionnel

    Sylvain Yan · April 27, 2014
  • Erica A.

    Cada tapa, uma surpresa melhor...da pra comer varias e nao gastar tanto...Muito pequeno e se come no balcão, então chegue cedo.

    Erica Azevedo · April 23, 2014
  • Andy E.

    For the love of god, order the Gauffre Jambon Artichaut. Best bite in Paris
