In Paris for a business meeting, I was staying in a nearby hotel and looked at the options near me ( on TA) the reviews for here looked good and the French Onion Soup received great plaudits. I understand both. A charming and relaxed restaurant, we found the service to be of the highest quality. The French Onion soup was... More

Our hotel was located next to this restaurant. We had diner on the very first night of our stay and also the last night.... Food is typycal but very very good. Concerning the wine, we chose the rose (called M), good choice ! Ask for john-Paul (the owner), very friendly. Can't wait to visit paris again.

We were in Paris for the weekend and had actually headed for another place near by. But, we did not really fancy the menu on that day and decided to take a chance at this place. And we were glad we did. Our timing was perfect: we place was packed but managed to get the last table. The onion soup... More

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

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.
