    Oh my god... Just shut up and come here. They do with artichokes and ham what Picasso did to art. They speak English, serve you well... Just... Come here already.

    As a "tapitas" lover, I had to come here. Small French bites and the best wine 🍷.

    Unreal dining experience. Cozy and unique. The wait staff was possibly the best I've experienced anywhere. The tasting menu was just incredible. This is THE place.

    Love this gem. Pull up to the standing counter & order endless dishes of deliciousness while sipping on wine by the glass. Daily specials on the chalk board and the full menu is hanging above — fun!!

    From noon to midnight, the place is packed with folks ordering Yves' fantastic finger foods—ham croquettes, duck confit sausage hot dogs, fried Parmesan cheese puffs.

    Spain has tapas; Venice have cicchetti and Paris has L'Avant Comptoir. Excellent French food in a cozy service ritual. Pied de cochon; foie gras; ox tail Corsican wine, can't get better than this.

    This is the best place in all of Paris. Cheap, delicious wine and French tapas, great staff, and fun atmosphere. Also, communal bread and butter is delicious!

    Apparently, they changed chefs... today food was very bad. Had the ham croquettes, gauffre w/ artichokes / ham, macaron foie gras, which should be a success, but they were just tasteless. Disappointed

    Two words- beef carpaccio! Awesome service and since there's no seating, it's a great way to meet new people!!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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 😉

    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
