Perfect Bistro after having visited the market on Rue Mouffetard on a Sunday morning

After having enjoyed the market on Rue Mouffetard, one of Paris most traditional open air market with very good food, we visited the Le Mouffetard to warm up. Very friendly welcome. We had a big bowl of Onion soup, Salat with Goat Cheese and a mixed sausage and cheese platter. All was fresh and... read more

I am here by myself in Paris and was hunting about to find a nice quiet restaurant to eat authentic french food. Came across this place which was about 30% full and decided to try the fare. Being a non french speaker I went for what I knew, Boeuf Bourgignon which came with boiled potatoes and carrots in a rich... More

We stopped for a Sunday breakfast on a very cold winter day. They are great. There are lots of places to eat on this street. But this one stands out.

The first thing you need to be aware of with any of the restaurants in this area is that it is a student area, so the food quality may be lower than you'd expect, but it is very good value for money. Some other reviews have said it wasn't as good as they expected, but keep your expectations realistic to... More

What we liked in this restaurant was the fact that it did not surprise us. The entrecote was perfectly prepared as medium rare. The real gem was the delicious mushroom sauce. It was sort of rustic in a very positive way and really made all the difference for the whole serving. Recommended at least when ever the sauce is on... More

My wife and I had a late lunch here today. I ordered a steak with salad and fried potatoes. Got off to a bad start by giving me a knife that was not washed (maybe just barely). I asked for a clean one which came no apology. The salad was the highlight of the meal and it was sub-par, just... More

I was there with my boyfriend, wanted to have a very nice, romantic dinner. We asked for a nice wine. My boyfriend is an expert on wines. We received the wine, which was simply undrinkable!He ordered the Burger Specialty of the House and I ordered a goat cheese salad on hot toasts. Both foods were awful. His fries were cold,... More

My wife and I ate here on a Tuesday evening. We were weary after a long day of sight-seeing and were looking for a relatively cheap and cheerful cafe/restaurant. We made an excellent choice! It was remarkably warm (22C) for an October evening, and we were drawn to the fact that we could dine outside along a small side street... More

Me and my girlfriend went here because a booking at a "real" restaurant went wrong. This place is a total touristtrap. The only good thing about this place is the interior. The food we got served was unbeatable. The meat wasn't even dead and still we really appreciate rare meat. Because of the bad food and service I went on... More

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.
