Friendly Waiters and Great Food

Smile and say "bonjour" and everything will end well. The waiters are very friendly and the food is all you could ask for. Our daughter is vegetarian and they have a great salad with fresh vegetables, which made it also a great place for me to also order a cheeseburger. Enjoy the wine and the... read more

Well, I thought this place was OK and would have given it a '4' but my wife took against it. My salad was fine but she said her's was oily. She thought the waitress was surly but I thought she was just trying to live up to a Parisian stereotype. So probably worth a visit but I don't think my... More

I liked the wine. The food was quite good. The restaurant was a bit cramped, especially as it was busy. The tables are close and I couldn't feel comfortable. As there was nothing that impressed me and it was an uncomfortable environment, I wouldn't return.

We wanted lamb on our recent trip to Paris & since we had it here last year, we decided for our last night in Paris to have dinner here. Its been nicely remodeled since last year & our wonderful waiter Benjamin now works with his father in the clothing business. (He spoke perfect English & was so helpful.) The menu... More

Food more or less ok, but limited choice. We asked for a custom salad and they said it was absolutely impossible. Overall not worth the price.

We ate here on our recent trip to Paris, mostly because it was just down the street from our apartment & a sign outside advertised English speaking. So we gave it a try. I ordered lamb and my husband steak. Our waiter Benjamin was very friendly & helpful throughout our meal. The food was pretty good, not fantastic but good... More

We've found this restaurant while walking around the Luxembourg garden. I'm happy that we're at this place at lunch time. They have fabulous beef meals, and the deserts (especially the souffle ) were great. Recommended place if you're around.

The receptionist at our hotel recommended this small bistro just off the rue de Rennes when we were looking for a place for a late lunch. They serve classic French bistro fare and have a dish of the day as well as a pasta of the day. My daughter had the steak tartare and loved it. I had the pasta... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
