Had a couple of good cocktails one evening. Returned the following morning for a leasurely tea and coffee - more expensive than the cocktails! 6.20 Euros each! And the staff are very unfriendly.

Good location, on the corner of Rue St. Germain, but waiter was impatient with us and made us feel like we were being difficult, when asking him for wine recommendations. A shot of Makers Mark was 14 euros, and the Diet Coke was additional 7 euros, for a total of 21 euros for a drink. We won't be going back.

After extensive walking around beautiful Paris, we decided it was time for a beer and a snack. We ordered the "ravioli royale", a very nice serving of small raviolis in a light cream sauce and a generous serving of foie gras. Wow. Pricey? Yes, but what a snack!

After a very long day of exploring Paris, we found this very busy café not far from the Mabillon métro stop. Exhausted and starving, we found two outdoor seats and collapsed. The food was incredibly good. It certainly wasn't Michelin star-worthy, so I wouldn't call it the best cuisine I've ever consumed, but it was definitely the best café/brasserie food... More

Went here for the happy hour cocktails, as we were staying just across the road. I found them good value for Paris, well presented and promptly served. Nice friendly place but nothing to write home about. Didn't eat here. Overall impression was very favourable - the place delivered what it sets out to do. It's not a typical Paris cafe... More

We needed a late night spot to dine after touring the Eiffel Tower at sunset and our concierge suggested we try Mabillon in our neighborhood. I'm guessing that he knew it was one of the few places where the kitchen would still be open late, because otherwise I can't imagine recommending this place to anyone. The food was not very... More

It's not an easy task to find bistro in Paris which serves poor food. If you are looking for such - Le Café Mabillon it is. However, my rating is "terrible" and the reason is dishonest garçon. He served me with the bill almost 50% higher than the actual. I didn't want to argue and asked whether he is certain... More

Great place to nip in for a cocktail or glass of wine and some authentic Parisian food. Waiters are all very friendly and professional, it's always busy and social. Sit outside if you can as it is a great spot to people watch! Again its Paris prices so be prepared. No problems with speaking English, infact I haven't experienced that... More

I cannot comment on the food as we called in for a drink on Saturday night 14 euro for a Mojito, 11 euro for a bottled beer... I know this is Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris, but in my opinion, even by Paris standards these prices are having a laugh. There are lots of other options close to Café Mabilion... More
