Very good but not quite as good

My husband and I were here in August and had a very special meal. This time in March not quite as good. The service was warm and welcoming, however, the wait staff was over whelmed. The foies gras and escargot were very good but our main courses (veal chop and pork chop) were over cooked. The... read more

We passed this restaurant looking for another restaurant that had no availability. We had to wait about 40. minutes for a table but it was well worth it. The food was incredible without being overpriced. Authentic Parisian bistro atmosphere.

Five Years ago we discovered this darling place. We loved it so much we went there two times in one week. It was quintessential French. We told several friends and family it was a must! We knew it was On our short list of must go to places on our recent trip. Unfortunately, it was a classic tale of nothing... More

...at our hotel, this tiny, out of the way, traditional French restaurant exceeded the expectations engendered by its TripAdvisor ranking. Good food, good service, great atmosphere!

Wine list was excellent Food tasty, although a bit 80's in style. Restaurant cramped, could do with removing 1 or 2 tables

My husband and I have a romantic trip to Paris over Valentine's Day most every year. We found this charming little restaurant with exposed brick and stone walls while on our honeymoon trip 15 years ago and always try to make time to book a dinner here each time we return. This year there was an adorable couple from Belgium... More

This is a small, cosy restaurant serving traditional French dishes. The staff were extremely friendly and in general, we enjoyed the meal very much. The only issue (and it may have been because we are English) is that when we asked for our steaks medium-rare they cooked them completely all the way through and essentially ruined them. However, once we... 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.
