In this area of Paris everybody finds some place to have his special lunch or dinner.. You have a lot of nice bars as well! and actually it's also worth to see this neighbourhood, it's one of the most living neighbourhoods in Paris by evening! And pretty romantic with his small streets!

Latin Quarter is my favorite area in Paris. It has great atmosphere, brilliant eateries and bars and is full of friendly people. I've been there for breakfast, during lunchtime and dinner and it never disappoints.

An amazing area with a maze of narrow streets, little shops with lots of inexpensive cafés and restaurants. Central to many Parisian sites and the Metro a great way to send as much time as you want. Some there for every one.

Both visits to Paris we stayed in the 5th arr. and felt it was the perfect home base for seeing the city. We wanted to immerse ourselves. We rarely heard any English spoken in the restaurants. We felt like locals by the end of each visit. Loved it!
