I booked a reservation for Monday January 19 for 4 people, immediately got a confirmation email from L'Ilot Vache, and headed over there at the appointed time. Well, there was a sign in their window that they're closed from January 16 until mid-March for renovations. How can they still be accepting reservations? My guests and I went out of our... More

Went here on the recommendation of friends. The food was as advertised, very special. Took advantage of their three course menu. The lamb was perfectly cooked with a wonderful sauce. The Boeuf Bourguignon au Chocolat Noir was another treat. The service started off very attentive and as the restaurant filled up the service went down hill. Almost 20 minutes went... More

Our group of four liked the look and feel of the dining room, the fresh flowers, the service, and the food. The location the corner of two streets with lots of pedestrians makes it feel like a hive of activity outside, but peaceful inside. The prix fixe is a bargain. Pro- portions were actually quite large for all of our... More

This place is stunning. Away from the main tourist trap on the island behind Notre Dame, it is lively yet cosy with a really inviting interior of extravagant floral decorations, exposed stone walls, subdued lighting and lots of cows to count (apparently the island was once home to cows, hence the inclusion of cow (vache) in the restaurant title. Excellent... More

My wife and I stayed on Ile Saint-Louis for a week in Oct 2014. L'Ilot Vache was nearby and I concur with all the positive reviews. Service and food were great, prices decent. I had duck confit (the best Ive had) and my wife Beef Bourguignon which she enjoyed. The patès, cheeses, salads and desserts (tarte tatin and creme brulee)... More

Our drinks were made up and served promptly ,the meal was excellent with... More
