Tourist. But nice.

I spent a night with my company on this boat. Nice environment. But average food. Nevertheless the service was ok. And the view ... is unique. Worth a visit

This quaint little restaurant directly opposite the Notre Dame is a hidden gem, we had a nice two-course meal for only 15 euros each and the food was exceptional, the waiters were very attentive and helped me with my French and enjoyed trying to speak English to my girlfriend, the place did feel a little squeezed, tables were very close...

Ducked into this place to get out of a rain shower, because of a sign for moules and frites. (Mussels and fries) Some of the best we have ever had. But, some of the other plates looked weak as they went by. Give it a try but be careful what you order .

Because of the French national holiday (August 15-Assumption Day), many good restaurants were closed. We were famished and the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. This place was packed, so we took the plunge. The waiters were great (that's the positive). Very friendly, funny. Once seated, we only heard loud American English spoken throughout the diners. Our meals... More

Attracted by the large crowd we entered however experience was a true disappointment. Croque Hawaii for kid below standard, quite low taste in the pasta, steak not very tasty... Not recommended...

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant 3 times during our week long holiday to Paris as we enjoyed the food so much! It was right near our hotel as well so it was very convenient! The menu is huge with various options for different financial needs. The first 2 visits we chose from the 19.50€ for 2 courses menu... More

Located just across the river from the rose window of the Cathderal of Notre Dame, we were part of a tour group. Multiple waiters took our orders and gave us timely, attentive service. The restaurant served a multi-course meal to over 25 of us. The food was delicious, the service top notch and very importantly, the chocolate cake dessert was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
