I've picked this restaurant based on these reviews and I'm very pleased to say it was a good choice. Excellent food, excellent service and atmosphere. We felt really welcome even though we were the only not-french there. For a bit more money the evening before we had much poorer dinner. It's worth to come here, I would highly recommend this...

For friendly service, atmosphere and value Maison de Verlaine is very hard to beat. Nicos and his family take great pride in giving their clients a very warm welcome and food that's tough to beat. If you eat here on your first night in Paris there's a good chance you'll dine at Maison de Verlaine more than once.

This place was amazing! The food to the service A+. The lamb is a must, but sells out fast. The pepper steak is made to perfection, overall the quality of the food is amazing. Price wise all I can say is WOW!!!!! The set menu is a great deal or ala cart, and the wine! We are already planing on... More

Chose this restaurant by chance on an evening in Paris - often a chancy proposition as for every unforgettable meal in Paris there are lots you wish you could forget. How great that my random choice turned out to be La Maison de Verlaine. Over the top great service, delicious food and a surprisingly small bill. The owner/manager was very... More

Very seldom are all the ingredients in place to make a dining experience perfect. This evening was one of those rare moments. A few steps away from Rue Mouffetard, with a most charming terrace, and super friendly staff, we could only ask for good food. And it was. Not perfect (one of the magret dishes was slightly overlooked)' but the... More

For the past year I have used trip advisor to find restaurants when visiting new cities and once again they did not fail. La Maison de Verlaine was an excellent place to eat on our first night in the Jardin des plantes area of Paris for a few years. The set menu was 20Euro and there were excellent choices. I... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and it never fails to offer great service and food at a very good price! I have been to other places in the area which were far more expensive but none were as good as La Maison de Verlaine! Everytime I have been there the customers are from all locations,including locals and... More

In Hemmingway's house at the top of Rue Mouffetard (but on Descartes) sits this quaint little restaurant. Yes, it's for tourists, but the food was very good and the service exceptional. When we walked by earlier in the evening (we were starving and wanted to eat asap) the waiter didn't seem terribly friendly and just said come back at 6:30... More

Well once again we visited here on the basis that it was very nearby when we had all had a long day sightseeing in Paris. What a find! Made our last day so special. We all took the set lunch menu which was great value and everything was delicious. Creme brûlée to die for! Our waiter was a total star... More
