We stopped at lou Lou for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised. They had Brooklyn brewery on tap and Jurassic 5 playing on the radio. The outdoor seating was shady & cool. Service was good and they spoke some english, which helped. My husband got a burger which ended up being duck. He was... read more

Tired and hungry midday on a Sunday after early museums visits, we were delighted to sit down in this welcoming outdoor cafe (with an amusing name) in the Latin Quarter, and read the menu of American style eggs and burgers. But all the other diners were French! An amusing combination of French university students, couples, and families. Great Eggs Benedict... More

We ordered the club sandwich and the basque burger with beef pattie and chorizo. They both came with hand cut chips, unfortunately they were nothing special. Service and atmosphere were both great though!

I ordered Kale Salad because I really wanted to eat kale! But was not told that kale was not in season. The dish came and it was just plain old rocket salad - which objectively wasn't even good. The waitress was nice enough to give me some avocado on the side but it really doesn't excuse the fact that I... More

Great little spot and the friendly diner name is spot on, smiley waiters, no frills burgers and the best home made chips/fries. All washed down with a little carafe of red wine. Hit the spot after walking the City all day. Nice.

Visiting Paris for a short break. Called into Lou.lou.Paris for a late evening drink and snack because it looked welcoming and there was a good buzz from french speaking customers.

Hello! As the manager of Loulou Friendly Diner, I am pretty disappointed with the experience you had in our restaurant, and I apologize for it. It is true that we first close the hot food, then, a bit later, the all kitchen, in order for the late customers to have a chance to have desserts after their main course. I... More

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
