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 is a beautiful restaurant. My wife and I ate here on Sept. 2. We sat at a table near the bar. There was only one server for all the tables. He was very busy and only said a few words to us. Other people complained about the service, but no one from the restaurant provided any help. I had... More

Typically French and art deco this restaurant does not fail to deliver. The wine is excellent and you will be spoilt for choice if you are a fan of French cuisine. The food is fairly priced considering this is a short walk outside the very centre of Paris. The desserts are far superior to anything else we have had in... More

We enjoyed a later afternoon meal as a family of five with young children. They served excellent food in a short time frame, which was enjoyed by all. The staff were professional and helpful.

This restaurant is simply lovely with it's art deco style. The food is good. It is not the best meal that I had in Paris but very flavorful and comforting. Suckling Pig, Pork & Saurkraut & Beef Stew were all prepared nicely and enjoyed by the table. The cheese course provided a great selection of different cheeses and the chocolate... More

We ate here for lunch, we ordered the set for only 15 euros for an amazing and beautiful meal. I had the eel. The soup of the day (I think it was pumpkin soup) was sooo delicious (as expected, I suppose, from a soup kitchen). The interior of the restaurant is also gorgeous, and the service is excellent as well.... More

“Originally a bouilllon, one of the Parisian soup restaurants popular at the turn of the 20th Century”, the Le Bouillon Racine Restaurant has been beautifully renovated in the Belle Époque style (1870 - 1910). The restaurant is two floors, casual dining downstairs and a more formal setting upstairs. The menu is seasonal and there are set menus available. The meal... More

We enjoyed our dinner here while visiting family in Paris. Bouillon Racine is a historic building, with Art Nouveau decor, an eye-candy setting for dining. The brasserie serves very good French food. The avocado spinach soup (cold) appetizer was good. We had a variety of main courses including steak, duck confit, duck meat (breast I think) in cherry sauce, lamb,... More

This restaurant is a classy restaurant...so dress up before you go! We had spent the day exploring and did not feel we were wearing proper attire. That being said, the staff greeted us just like anyone else, regardless. They were very welcoming and pleasant. Our waitress however did not speak a word of english. This doesn't bother me as i'm...

Our last night in Paris, we decided to walk the streets near our hotel and see what we could find. While getting hungry, it started to rain and we ran into the first eatery we could get to. Lucky for us, even though they were not open yet they invited us to sit at a table and have a glass... More
