Nice Spot for Lunch

We stopped here on a walking tour and found it the perfect breaking spot. The food was good, the service as well. We were seated in the back, in the salon and were surrounded on all sides by professors and graduate students. It was a real taste of local life for academics in Paris.

Food at restaurants is so expensive but this place had very good prices. Instead of a sandwich the croques here had one large slice of bread covered by toppings then cheese then broiled. We also got a bottle of tap water for free which was nice. There is a college across the street which may explain the lower prices.

This is a pleasant restaurant right next to the Pantheon, in a student area of Paris near Luxembourg Gardens. There are lots of other cosy and interesting restaurants nearby. My friend ordered chicken and mash; I ordered a special of white fish and carrot mash: Both were fine, not great. A number of customers were eating large salads - a... More

Came here on final day for an early dinner - sat outside, so cannot comment on facilities inside not used. The food was edible but not exceptional perhaps to be expected because of price. Ordered steak (medium) but received more like well done - was going to have dessert but this put me off & as I was only going... More

Having spent 4 or 5 hours on foot exploring the southern and eastern districts of Paris, this place offered a welcome respite Located right next to the Pantheon, we popped in here for mid afternoon drinks and nibbles Prompt service (given how busy they were) and reasonable prices (16 euros for 4 drinks is less than London)

Try to sit outside for great people watching in a lively location. You can also have Pantheon and Eiffel Tower views. We found the service friendly and efficient. Food was just okay, but nothing to complain about. This place looked better and more authentic than other cafes nearby in vicinity, and I am glad we chose it.

Found this in Lonely Planet guide and verified with TripAdvisor. Sat on terrace with (partial) view of Eiffel Tower. Great for people watching too. The pate and duck confit were both excellent. My husband enjoyed the chicken. Good value for money.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
