Lovely Restaurant

A lovely restaurant in the Latin Quarter with great food and wonderful service. Definitely a restaurant to visit if you're in the neighbourhood. It was one of our favourite meals of the week.

Wanted to fine a typical French restaurant to have a beautiful meal in whilst in Paris and a few people recommended this place and was not disappointed! My mum, sister and I did a three course set lunch with champagne and loved it from start to finish. It's tucked away in a quiet street and is where Hemmingway lived in... More

Spending five nights in Paris we went to La Maison de Verlaine on our second evening. Simply great service and food. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Highlights were the foie gras , sea food and the profiteroles. We loved it so much we went back the second night

Walking by La Maison de Verlaine, while we didn't have a reservation on a Friday night, we were able to get a table indoors. The food was wonderful, accompanied by a lovely wine. The interior was cozy and filled with memorabilia. The wait staff was attentive and the manager came by to make sure two women were having a wonderful... More

We were staying in the latin quarter and wanted an authentic experience for dinner. This restaurant was great- we were met by the owner with a smile and he helpfully made a table available to us without a booking. He spoke good English (although we tried our best to order in French!) and the atmosphere of the venue was cosy... More

This restaurant is charming, from the friendly owner to the charming server. We enjoyed a lovely evening sitting at an outside table. The food, wine and service were exceptional.

We had a lovely evening here. The setting is perfect on the inside, it has a quaint and traditional French feel which made if feel very romantic. We also loved the chance to try some lovely traditional french food (including snails) at a very reasonable price. We had a 3 course meal with champagne and coffee for 29.50 euros each.... More

I must have gone to La Maison de Verlaine on a bad night given all the great reviews posted below. My friend and I both ordered from the three course menu. The onion soup was so bland and barely had any onion in it. The steak was hard and dry. The crème brûlée was the only decent part of the... 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.
