I've been here a few times alone and with friends. This place is quaint and friendly. I've never had a bad experience. They play great music too.

This restaurant was so busy and we were lucky to get a table. The place was buzzing and atmosphere great. We all enjoyed our meal but the onion soup was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this place.

Coming back from D'orsay to our hotel (at raspais blvd), looking for a place to warm up (freezing by that time, around 6pm) and some food&drinks, we decided to stop in this bistrot. Standing in a charmy looking corner, just like a Parisian one. What a lucky! No tourists, so an authentic place and, believe it or not, a very... More

We visited here at 10:30 p.m. and were warmly welcomed into a comfortable setting. The service was excellent and the food could have been better. I settled for a 15 euro burger that was priced about double what it should have been. My wife's Noix de St. Jacque was, well, adequate but the rice was dry. Our friend was not... More

Booked table for their fixed New Year's Eve meal - having dropped in for a casual glass of wine in early evening. Very pleased with the decision. Restaurant buzzing - all tables decorated - staff friendly and smiling. Good menu at 51euros, started with glass of champagne and got better. We don't eat foie gras but other starter, smoked salmon,... More

I cannot comment on the food. We only ate breakfast here on our first morning before we could check into our hotel. Breakfast was good. But the best part of this cafe was the fact it was near our hotel and we truly sat outside in freezing temperatures under the heaters every day after sightseeing. Tired, hurting feet, we sat...

We found this by chance and had the set menu (approx 50 francs). Champagne to start, then salmon, one had foie gras. Mains were fish , another had steak - all excellent. Desserts were a mixed selection. Wine was great. Execellent food, excellent service.

Stumbled upon Le Pre aux Clercs while looking for another restaurant the Seine River hop on hop off employee recommended. The decor was fantastic - It was December. All the employees really wonderful. My dish, the chicken and potatoes was okay, my travel partner's must have been good for she ate it all. Went to the bathroom and returned to... More

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.
