Description: The famous Bouillon Racine is in the district of the celebrated Parisian university of the Sorbonne. This splendid brasserie was created in the art nouveau style by the Chartier brothers in 1906. The building itself is a listed building and the interior has been painstakingly renovated to its former splendour. The menu is a mixture of modern and traditional French with specialities such as stuffed milk pig, the original Café Liégeois or the crème brûlée flavoured with maple syrup. The Bouillon Racine takes you on a wonderful journey through time back to the Paris of the 1900s.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel receptionist and first impressions of the atmosphere and decor suggested this meal would be a highlight of our trip to Paris. The experience went rapidly down hill from then on. Our table was booked for 9.30 pm but we did not sit down at the table until 10.00 pm. It then took ages... More

Beautiful art nouveau décor and a restaurant we have revisited several times over the last ten years. We were so looking forward to it as it was the first time our whole family of six could be there together. The staff were great but unfortunately the food was average and not up to the standard we expected based on past... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with impeccable service and food to match. My husband and I were charmed by the decor and ambiance. The sparkle of beveled mirrors and glass and the cool pale green felt like being under the sea. We had the superb pumpkin soup to start. I had a rolled pork dish with an incredible sauce and... More

This is a gorgeous art deco restaurant that is worth it just to walk inside and see. We went for lunch and got the plat du jour which was very reasonable. I had pumpkin soup for a starter and veal with potatoes for the main course. It was under 20 euros and very tasty. The place was not filled with... More

We were invited here for a evening dinner, and the place has been done to reflect the early 1900s classic french theme. The art decor takes you back in time, and the place certainly attracts the crowd as we could see it was really busy. Being a veggie, the 'chef's special' was better then what I had at other places...

We loved the duck with cherries and the dinner of 3 kinds of pork. The service was a little slow, but very friendly. We arrived early without reservation which wasn't an issue. Good food, good value.

It was my first time in this place, so, I was curious what to expect in that famous Parisian restaurant. We went there on day to have a lunch. Insofar the atmosphere and the nice classical interior did not disappoint, the food was no more than average. First, the portions (especially the main plate) were rather small. Second, the quality...

A throw back to the early 1900's, the decor of this restaurant takes you back to an earlier era in Paris. This is a popular restaurant - was full on a Tuesday night. It is on the pricey side, but worth it for a special meal and experience. This was our last meal before leaving Paris, and as such, was... More

One of the pretties restaurants in Paris, this classic French is near the Luxenburg Gardens, and quite a find. It's on the pricey side, so we went in the afternoon seeking the lower lunch prices and had an amazing meal. The 15 Euro prix fixe lunch menu offers multiple choices and is hard to beat, although they also offer a... More

Devine, luxurious,classic French restaurant that catered for our large family visit (9 of us) with two vegetarians and 3 children with kindness, professionalism and excellent service. The food was outstanding beaten only by the distraction of our surroundings. You do need to book ..we sat upstairs which was quieter than down stairs.
