this is not really what I would call a restaurant, it is a small place with stools instead of proper chairs and a limited salad, cheese and ham plates, there are no warm cooked meals. If you are looking for a tapas bar, then this is a reasonable place.
We were lured by the high ratings in Tripadvisor and a special discount granted to web booking. We were disappointed because we thought we would find a wider range menu similar to other restaurants of the Latin Quartier. We decided to have dinner anyway but when we received the ticket they did not apply the discount offered in the web because they argued that this was valid "only for lunch time" (there was no mention of this in the web...)

Hi sir thanks for your review.

You are right concerned the type of my place it’s a tapas bar with different kind of ham and cheese. It’s for that reason which there is no warm meal.
The card is based on cure meat (ham) and cheese from all over Europe so you have large choice.

When you book on trip advisor it’s clearly notice about the discount 20% at lunch only.

I invite you to read better which kind of restaurant you are visiting to not be surprise at the end.

Thanks and have a nice day

It is perhaps not the fault of this restaurant that the 'bigging up' done by so mant TripAdvisor reviews results in disappointment.

This is a decent, but very average, small local tapas bar.

If I lived nearby, I would definitely drink a glass of wine and have some tapas and watch the world go by at this place, but I would not go out of my way to visit this restaurant.

I would not go out of my way to eat here otherwise.

The tapas was unimaginative and not very fresh.

The welcome was indifferent and the goodbye positively rude (less than attractive side comments to a local in french not realising that one of our party spoke fluent french as we left was a 'bad taste in mouth' parting gift).

Clearly the sentiment that we wont be coming back is probably welcome.

Shame, the hype was so much greater than the reality.

Our hotel was very near to this place, tried our luck to find a place. That is a unique experience, we tried several cheese types and meats. The wine was a great one. Try to reserve a table.

Thank you

Thomas was once again an incredible host to our daughter Brenna today. She called us as soon as she finished her visit to Rumeurs to tell us about her amazing experience. We are glad she got to meet Thomas and see for herself what we already knew. He is not just the owner of a restaurant. He builds relationships with each person he meets, and treats each of us like one of his family.

Very simple and very tasty. Limited choice of jamon, cheese, fish, ham and other similar staff. All is fresh and tasty. Good choice of wine and sweet drinks.
