Visited the area on many occasions to get something to eat in particular. Was staying nearby at one point, so was handy. It is always pretty lively & vibrant, especially in the evening. Amazing variety of eateries for all budgets & tastes. Plenty of shops, so great for a stroll as well as a food destination. Close to Notre Dame.... More

Outdoor cafe's are pricey but the smaller lunch counters & bakeries where the locals eat offer good inexpensive meals.

Staying nearby, I went for a stroll around, and this place has a different charm to it. It comes lively early in the evening, but don't expect it to be as busy post 10pm. There are some good dining options too, with different cuisines to suit everyone's taste and budget. Keep safe late at night, as one another traveler in... More

The latin quarter is big but the true latin quarter is by the river close to the Notre Dame Cathedral. We had walked around the latin quarter for quite some time before we found the true latin quarter where all the people were and when we got there it was just the best :)

If you really want to experience Parisian "joie de vivre," you must take a stroll through the Latin Quarter. It's the perfect place to have a wonderful meal in one of the many restaurants and enjoy people-watching. It is especially romantic and fun at night when all the lights come on. Ah, Paris! Life is good here. Make the most... More

This is a great area of paris that you must see. Restaurants, stores, cafes: the latin quarter has it. And go on a saturday night for live entertainment. Crowds of people are out all night, it is a fun place to go at night.
