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.

Our travel blog group met in this art nouveau gem in the Fifth Arr. for cocktails in October and several of us lingered to enjoy dinner in the upstairs very large and gorgeous dining space. Duck confit with cabbage was my choice and I would happily recommend it. When in France I never can resist ordering il flottante when it's... More

I had 3 teenagers in tow in Paris on NYE. I chose the Bouillon Racine because of their menu, atmosphere and location. It met every expectation and we were so happy with our evening there, including the amazing food! For NYE there was a prix fixe menu with either turbot or doe. Our table had both and both were very... More

The restaurant is stunning, but we are also there for food. My order of the duck leg is cooked to perfection. However my husband ordered the special of the day, which is a pork chop. The Pork chop is so hard that the knife couldn't cut through. He is literally spending 90% of our meal time trying to cut the... More

The food was really good but I would say the portions were too small considering the price. I had the scallops and I felt the side was a bit of a cloud: you can see there is something in your plate but you don't feel much going in your stomach! The staff felt a bit restrained. The decoration is a-ma-zing!... More

For the price you should get better service. It is a pretty place and the food is good. The service is terrible (and it was not very busy).

We came in on a Friday night without a reservation. The place was mobbed, but the maitre d' graciously found us a nice table, the order was taken quickly, the food was delicious, and we came out very happy.

In the heart of the Latin Quarter/St Michel, this restaurant offers stunning food and fantastic wine list. For lunch they have set menus is you are on a budget but please try the deserts, they are delicious.

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.
