Yes - it is part of the Flo chain. But they know how to do brasserie right, and this is a sterling example. A bright light in the dark constellation of restaurants near Gare du Nord. All the brasserie faves, executed to perfection.
Stayed here for three days while in Paris. Seemed like a regular hotel, and at least I got two robes since we had two adults in the room. They fulled the toiletries, but were not as good with re-filling the coffee cups, tea cups, the coffee and they couldn't even have enough conversion plugs in stock for us to use, hence I couldn't use my laptop on my trip and I had to eventually buy one across from the train lines.
The room service food was not as good as I had expected, but all in all I would not mind coming back. I didn't love that they had a good complimentary continental breakfast, buffet style.
It is a perfect place where you can enjoy as much as Paris and then hop on the train back to London within 20 mins.
This place is a very traditional French brasserie. I don't think the menu has really changed over time, but food is good. Warning: this is part of a bigger group, and it does not look like food is prepared there.
From seafood to steak tartare, to fish, fish soup , it's all there. My steak tartare was excellent, but the fish a bit dry.
For desserts, traditional French with my favorite, profiteroles :-)
As for service, quick, efficient, but except the traditional Parisian arrogance ;-)
As a conclusion, this place is perfect before getting on the train to the North, serves good food, but prices have really gone up recently.
We had Xmas dinner here on the 24th and they had a set menu but it was not too bad. The waiters were very friendly, but sometimes a little pushy, I guess to get people in then out as quick as they could. They could have dimmed the lighting a little bit but apart from that it was pleasant enough. The food was average and the prices were ok for Paris.
Terminus Nord might not be on the same level as the famous Train Bleu in the Gare de Lyon but it is an excellent brasserie nevertheless.
If you are coming in with the Eurostar late in the evening and craving typical french cuisine, then this restaurant right opposite the train station entrance should be your choice. The Gare du Nord neighborhood is not exactly dotted with excellent restaurants, so this should be an easy and safe choice.
I can highly recommend their terrine de boeuf, onion soup and choucroute. very traditional fare as you can see :)
Apart from this place, most of all eating places around la Gare du Nord are rubbish (at junk ratings). On arrival in or departure from Paris, if you fancy a decent, traditional and proper French meal in that area, this is exactly where you should be with no doubt.
Any type of dishes are up to mark. My special recommendation goes to crustasses (ou fruits de mer). You don't have to be constrained by the month ending with 'er' but probably better avoid June to August. A very good inventory of wine and lovely desserts.
Services are very good, well, in a traditional French, very knowledgeable about food and wine (maybe too much) and witty enough. They make you feel immediately 'you are in France', voila!
Incidentally I adore their ladies room.
A great brasserie. The perfect place for dinner if you're waiting for the evening train back to London. Awesome service, great seafood. Loved the oysters!
