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.

We had walked by Le Pre the evening before we went and I made a mental note of where it was because he food looked delicious. The following evening we sat at one of the tables street side and people watched while enjoying our meal. We both had the steak with potatoes and it was delicious, the service was pleasant... More

We walked from the Seine up past Picasso's old studio on rue des Grands Augustins to a great art gallery on rue Saint André des Arts. We had already had lunch and hadn't planned to stop in here at Café Pré aux Clercs but a heavy rain fall and the known Hemingway connection made us change our minds. I'm glad... More

From our recent trip to Paris, my wife and I were wandering home from having just visited Musse D'Orsay (which was wonderful) and we stumbled on this cafe. It was the middle of the afternoon so we seated immediately, and there we stayed for about 2 plus hours. We had the table just to the left of the front door... More

We wandered in from our hotel jet lagged and ducking the rain. What a perfect find! Fantastic bistro food, i had salad and fish with veggies and my table mates had soup and roasted chicken. We went back late one night for a nightcap of wine and it was just as pleasant to sit outside when the weather permitted.

We were very pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this little cafe off of the louder main streets in St. Germain des pres. Our waiter was efficient and the food, a salad with large slices of chicken and a variety of vegetables and a tartine with ham and tomatoes were nicely prepared, were just what we wanted. Since we did not... More

We stopped here after a visit to the Orsay - a 10 minute walk away. The prices are slightly high, but the food was very good. The french onion soup was the best I had in Paris and perfect for a chilly, rainy day. The roast chicken with potatoes was very good too. I must come back for the coffee!

The atmosphere, open floor to ceiling windows, the friendliness of the staff was all AMAZING! The food was very good as well and the Onion Soup is the best we ever had! Our server, Fred, was wonderful! Between the little French we knew and the little bit more of English that Fred knew we had a fine time! We ate... More

My daughter and I had a lovely early dinner at Le Pre Aux Clercs on Sunday. It was a beautiful early evening and thus the restaurant was busy but the staff were delightful. The food was very tasty, although my daughter's steak came out more well done than medium rare. The Sancerre was devine. We will definitely return when next... More
