Our 2nd night in Paris of 6 and this was our favorite meal. The salad of greens with sliced poached pears, roquefort cheese then topped with a square of puffed pastry was the best salad I have had in a long time. Very rich but out of this world. Duck breast with a raspberry sauce not to sweet, cooked perfect... More

Our friends, whom we are visiting, took us here to get a true taste of Paris in atmospheric surroundings. It was absolutely perfect in every way, from the impeccable service to the gourmet meal. The 36 euro fixe price for appetizer, entree, and dessert couldn't be beat, for the epicurion delights we were served. Two of us had the lamb... More

As a local Parisian expat, I've dined here often and recommended this restaurant to friends and colleagues. This evening I took my family, visiting from the US, to dine at what is normally a great restaurant. The food and ambiance are still wonderful, but sadly the gentleman working this evening was unbelievably and shockingly rude. After he ignored our table... More

I had heard great things about this restaurant. The location, atmosphere, and wine was very good. Unfortunately the food was below par and was in fact the worst meal I had during a 2 day trip to Paris. The rare fillet steak ordered turned out to be an off cut of meat which was very well done and very gristly.... More

Top notch and by far the best. Outstanding service, outstanding food and outstanding ambiance!!!! We were treated so nicely and no complaints. 4 course meal for 3 including some wine was only $120 Euro. Beef Bourginoune was to die for, melted in your mouth served in a beautiful cassoulet....my 8 year old nephew ate every piece of duck as it... More

This is a great restaurant right on Rue Saint Louis en Ile. The atmosphere is unique given the eclectic decor. Cosy and comfortable, some may find the table configuration tight depending where you are seated. Classic French bistro cuisine including confit de canard. Good wine selection. Our Brazilian host was entertaining, welcoming and went out of his way to get... More

Been a long time returning after about 8 years but Liilot Vache was still there and to a great surprise had a free table for the Saturday night. Though at 37euro the set menu seemed a little pricy but compared to the 'slop' 'made for tourists' in the latin quarter this was fantastic. If anything had improved with age ,... More

My wife and I had an excellent meal, served by friendly, attentive staff in a room with a unique ambiance. It's hard to get better. We found the restaurant by luck as we were just walking around looking for a place to eat. The decor and stone wall/rustic interior looked inviting and the English speaking front of house staff welcomed... More

Myself and fiancée visited L'llot Vache for a romantic meal - and weren't disappointed. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance; warm lighting, flowers, exposed stone wall... Although it is a touch small, we we're fortunate to have one of the larger tables for two (worth requesting ahead if you want to avoid joining another couples table!). The service was attentive,...

The best meal we had in Paris. Service was very good, not rushed, and the food outstanding. A very relaxed place as the entire service from beginning to end was 2 hours+. My wife had Beef Bourguignon and I had lamb. I did notice that other patrons were not happy with speed of servers but for a romantic meal with... More
