A lovely French experience

Just opposite our hotel - lovely, if not a little basic food, typical French setting. Staff were friendly and let you practice your French!

After a busy day at Orsay, it was so nice to come home to Le Pre Aux Clercs for a wonderful meal. Not a fancy over-stuffed, over-priced meal. Just good solid comfort food dining. Filled with tourists and locals, the atmosphere was fun and the service quite attentive. Parisien hamburger, onion soup and creme brulee all major hits with our... More

I sat at a sidewalk table on the rue Jacob, watching well-dressed Parisians and visitors to the fine art and antique galleries in the area. I ate an excellent plate of foie gras, and a solid steak au poivre. I saw large and fresh looking salads being served to the next table. A good choice for a fair value bistro... More

This is a cramped cafe that served us very well for lunch after a long walk. There were eight of us and the waiters willingly put some tables together for us, which was appreciated very much. Service was prompt and polite, prices seemed reasonable. Food was mixed. Some of the dishes, like the lamb chop special, were very good. Some... More

I admit, we were foolish to step though their door-it's patently tourist fodder. However we were very very hungry! Their food was pre packaged dross. We had: Pate: vast lump of heavily salted, pre purchased supermarket pork pate. Duck: poorly cooked, overly fatty served with an acrid sauce (which would have been better suited as a salad dressing) and a... More

We liked this spot so much we went back again. Both meals were outstanding and the atmosphere, while very busy, was delightful. We felt that a busy place is a good place to find excellent food. And we were right. We also had the pleasure of making new friends with a couple who sat nearby. Very enjoyable and happy to... More

We stumbled on this place as it was close to our hotel. We enjoyed drinks outside one night and came back for a wonderful dinner the next. My wife LOVED the duck and the rest of us had the house specialty, roasted chicken. Gluten Free was not an issue and the mashed potatoes were great. Priced right!

We ordered a full lunch with wine, but immediately after we said we didn't want a desert, the manager slammed our bill down and removed our table! A thoroughly unpleasant and rude experience.

Considering it was opposite our hotel we decided to pop in for a coffee on our final day, wished we hadn't. Weak watery coffee, worst in Paris. Not acceptable when there are so may brasseries on every corner.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

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.
