A cozy place, with French families all around you. Knowledgeable staff and one of few quality places open on Sundays. And the food! Good options a la carte and a "today's" with alternatives. They stay with the pure tastes. Don't expect a number of conflicting tastes and dishes. If you order duck or lamb or whatever, you'll truly experience that... More

La Marlotte is located on the Rue du Cherche Midi not too far from the Shopping Complex Le Bon Marché. We had gone there solely based on the décor to celebrate a birthday, which was probably a mistake. Their Sunday fixed menu was somewhat expensive considering the portion sizes and when it came to dessert, they definitely need to hire... More

This came as a hotel staff recommendation and all I can say is they must be on some form of incentive, it was awful. The steak my wife had resembled shoe leather and the cod I had was bland and tasteless with not a hint of the lemon butter that the menu suggested. Dessert was worse, with creme brûlée that... More

La Marlotte is a traditional french restaurant located in the great area of Saint Germain des Pres. The food is fine and the ambiance is very good, full of people. We went here for New Year's with our family and have to say that the service was very good, everyone very very nice.

Appetizers and main courses were all good, but desserts not. Fondant was heated in microwave. That is definitely not the way to go. Luckily super good steak was still on my mind when desserts came to table. Might go again..

I have been 3 times now to this traditional restaurant in the centre of Paris and it just gets better. It has old world charm with a modern no-nonsense approach to cooking. There are staples of french cooking which are top class. I love the saladier de lentilles and dos de cabillaud and île flottante. Their meat dishes are superb... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant and the food. It is more than casual café food like a number of the restaurants in this area, so go here if you want to sit down and have a meal; cost reflects that. Our group had a variety of dishes that were all great. I had whole grilled sea bass that was perfectly cooked... More

Surprised by some of the mixed reviews as the night I was here with three friends everyone enjoyed it. The sea bass was cooked correctly and the terrine very tasty. Good selection of wines at above average pricing. Service was good but don't expect to converse in English to any extent. Tables are very close together so you need to... More

The service was good and the the atmosphere was nice. Our American tastes weren't quite aligned with the cuisine but we wanted to try something new. I ate pressed beef tail which tasted like my mothers meatloaf. The cold chocolate soup for dessert was delicious.

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.
