A gem on the south bank.

In our previous to Paris three years ago, we stayed in an apartment near Le Mouffetard. When we stayed at the same, apartment, we returned to this restaurant where we enjoyed our meals again. We sampled the beef Bourgogne, salmon, and duck dishes. All were tasted and served by a very attentive... read more

I've had a perfect brunch there! I sat outside and still the service was very caring. I'm vegetarian so I went for a toast with melted cheese and fried tomatoes on top (~10€). The herbs made it taste super good and I would definitely recommend it. In addition, I took the day's specialty - lemon tart - for a dessert.... More

Terrible experience already outside the restaurant. It is a very cozy, typical french bistro, and the interiour itself made us want to sit down. But when we met the staff, it was like we didn't even exist, so we just sat down on the table anyway. Our waiter was not happy with us speaking english, and his handgestures said: so... More

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 tasty. Typical French Bistro style. Attentive... 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

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.
