The food is descent and freshly prepared. You are always welcomed warmly. The French fries are home made and just wonderful. Try "les andouillettes", it is really one of the best. For dessert; my favorite is "l'île flottante", just fantastic... A good address

This was my second visit. It's a small,relaxed place with a limited menu but with a good range of options to suit different dietary preferences. Food is very nice if not spectacular—simple, fresh, well-prepared food, not fussy. Prices are neither inexpensive or expensive. My meal with soup, main course and a glass of wine was USD $38. I was somewhat... More

I wanted something other than the usual 'brasserie', and I was not disappointed. White linen, courteous staff, not an extensive menu but the special of the day was excellent - wild duck in a luxurious, rich sauce. Nice choice of wine by the glass or 50 cl. A place to return to.

I found this restaurant via TripAdvisor reviews of places near my St. Germain hotel, and had no problem as a single diner getting seated immediately. Service was very pleasant throughout, and they have all their menu items (including specials) listed in both French and English (there's literally a separate English chalk board for specials). I loved my starter dish --... More

This bistro was recommended to us by our hotel in St Germain du pre. I guess if we weren't in Paris it would have been ok but we expected the food to be much better. Steak frites was very tough. Nice atmosphere and only place I have been where they bring you a box of cookies to eat at the... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 15 years. The only disappointment is that there is an English menu with plastic coating. I used to love the old paper menus. Do not miss the "Ile flottante" the best version of this classic French dessert.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
