This is one of my hangouts in the city business or pleasure ,and many meetings there. It is the polebearer of now several branches in Paris. The square victor hugo is unique with its quaint old streets around it,and the market plus a huge car parking that I use.
The restaurant is a typical old Spanish bar, of the many immigrants here since long time, very cozy and decorated with bull corridas posters. The ambiance is chic, and grand, with nice service and wonderful folks that even waits on the table for you even if late ::)
Favorite Dish: we go for the menu of the day and beers. menu du jour, or déjeuner ,the lunch at 13€ is a bargain
the porc noir de bigorre is excellent and a specialty of the house, black pig from the bigorre region further south.
