A fabulous little restaurant for both a quick coffee or dinner. Waiters were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. I can recommend the Duck Magret. Not far from the river right across the Louvre

Returned several nights for nightcap after having lunch there,. Great location for people watching. Flavio (hope I have this right), our english speaking waiter was terrific. Very personable and helpful with interesting local knowledge and sightseeing recommendations. You do have to deal with smokers on the sidewalk serving stations.

After two very disappointing dinners in Paris our faith to be had in the pleasures of Paris were restored. On a very busy Friday evening we managed to secure a table. After discussing our food and wine selections with the waiter, he made a couple of alternate suggestions. He really hit the mark! Wine was superb and our food was... More

Being two blocks from our hotel, it was a very convenient location. The food I ordered was ok (maybe it was just the lamb that I ordered that wasn't so good), the selection of cocktails and beer on tap were good as was the casual ambiance. For dinner, we sat at a table just inside but open to the sidewalk... More

We just spent a week in Paris. Two grandparents and one parent were traveling with a rather picky 13 year old eater and Le Pre Aux Clercs had something for everyone! As were were tourists, we tried many establishments for lunch and dinner. Le Pre aux Clercs had the friendliest servers that we encountered in Paris. Food was excellent. This... More

Very overpriced, tourist trap. Pretty spot, but espresso was burnt, and they couldn't even make a good crepe, and at 7 euros that's a crime.

This cafe was across the street from our hotel (Hotel La Villa Saint Germain Des Prés) and we found the service and food to be terrific. It turned into our final stop each evening for a glass of wine and good internet access before turning in. The first evening, we also shared a very delicious chocolate/banana crepe....very good. Service was... More

In July 2013, we ate here twice and had a great time. We returned this year and it was just not that good, sad to say. For one thing (and maybe this was unique to us), we had really loved the coddled eggs with salmon, which was great last year. This year, it was just ok. The other food was... More

Care with ordering, and look at what others get delivered some meals are typically french and do not constitute what a British person might call a complete meal! Otherwise food is good, service OK and atmosphere is good, packed out! Watch cost of drinks it is unbelievable Food is reasonable and bear extortionate. Litre of beer was 21Euro

Badly cooked food with ok wine. I had lamb cutlets that were either raw or burnt and my partner has chewy roast chicken. McDonalds would be better. I suggest you try somewhere else.
