We were tired after a long day of sightseeing and decided to stop here for lunch. We were glad we did because it was a great spot for people watching! Starters were excellent. I had the onion soup and pate platter. Yum. The mains were so so. The special of the day, "onglet" was rather bland as was the duck... More

I have been going to this cafe for years. The service is wonderful and the food always amazing. The roasted chicken is a favorite for all that live in the neighborhood - and people come from all over Paris for the Coquilles Saint-Jacques. Also the wine list is very good and not too pricey. The "vin du mois" is usually... More

Ate here a number of times including breakfast lunch and dinner. Good French food at reasonable prices and staff very helpful and speak good English. Music is good being modern jazz and the locals seem to frequent it . Nice place to observe the world go by and see what the locals eat.

Looking for a quick bite to eat for breakfast, this was open and it sufficed. However, the breakfast was very basic and significantly over priced. The service was sufficient, but one felt one should be grateful for the little attention that was received.

Just up at the corner from Hôtel Des Marronniers, the food is always good, there's always a table available (though this is a popular place), and service is friendly and efficient.

I struck out when I went here for a quick bite, shortly after landing in Paris. Over the next several days, I learned how many wonderful places I could have chosen and done so much better. Their eggs are watery, the croissant stale, the coffee powdery. The waiter was very nice though.

As we walk through vacation cities we check menus to decide where to eat- their menu looked appealing so in we went. Service was cheerful and very helpful as we had a few questions. Unsure of which of 2 dishes, I took the servers recommendation, as did my husband, and we both were more than pleased. I highly recommend this... More

We liked this bistro. We were two couples. The Onion soup was great. The young waiters were friendly. Lots of locals eating here. Foi gras was great. My fish was great. Everyone liked their lunch. Great neighborhood. It was a welcome break from walking in the Saint Germain neighborhood and the musée d'Orsay. If you like American History, note the... More

This restaurant stands out amongst others in the area because of its decor, music and young, friendly staff. The food was delicious and there was a diverse menu including substantial fresh salads. It was a busy Friday evening and filled with Parisiennes. It was a perfect antidote for jet lag and we will definitely return.

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.
