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 chef Alexandre Belthoise proposes a menu mixing modern and traditional French with specialities such as stuffed milk pig, beef stew or the creme brulee flavoured with maple syrup. The Bouillon Racine takes you on a wonderful journey through time back to the Paris of the 1900s.

Last dinner in Paris

What a beautiful place, we ate here on a quiet Sunday evening. I ordered vegetarian, It was tasty and interesting but not the best meal. The others did enjoy their meals. Nice place for multiples to eat as in a group or family.

Delightful décor, excellent food and service. Convenient to Jardin de Luxembourg and Blvd. Saint Germain. We had a wonderful evening at this restaurant on a Sunday night. We ate upstairs, where it was peaceful and quiet. The 32 Eu menu included soup, main course and desert. We would return in a hearbeat!

Our best meal in Paris. My son loved his tuna tartare (well, we all loved it, except my daughter who recoils at the thought of raw fish), I loved my steak tartare (as did my wife, who recoils at the thought of undercooked meat), and the waitress taught my daughter the art of carrying up to 17 stemware glasses at...

You really do have the sense that this place was last redecorated 100 years ago. Stunning space with mirrors and tiled panels. Our waitress was helpful, funny and added to the experience. Favourites among the courses our party of six ordered included a crab salad with soft poached egg, cool and fresh gazpacho, steak and fish dishes. A bill of... More

Perfect example of an unpretentious Paris restaurant, with excellent food and service, in a beautiful art nouveau setting. Good value 3-course menu at 31 euros. Not a word of English on the menu, classic French cuisine, highly recommended for visitors who appreciate the good things in life and are prepared to do as the Parisians do.

Went on the Eurostar for a day trip to Paris with some friends. We were looking for a typical French bistro and this cam highly recommended. It did not disappoint. The interior was charming and we were luck enough to get a table upstairs. The service was excellent with just the right amount of bonhomie. The restaurant was busy ,... More

The place it self is very nice and ok for large groups of people since the rooms are very big (can be noisy)the food is extremely average and the portions quite poor,after 2 main course and 50€ bill we were still hungry.

We came for lunch - the soup was excellent. For desert we both had creme brule which was one of the best we've tasted, smooth and full of subtle flavours. Both of us were taken by the decor which is amazing, especially the upstairs room which is a gem. There are so many small aspects of the design which catch... More
