This came as a hotel staff recommendation and all I can say is they must be on some form of incentive, it was awful.

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.

The meals have absolutely no taste, some are too cooked, hard to cut, others too small, WHERE THE HELL IS THE COOK ? That is NOT "french cuisine" ! And it's quite expensive ! Go somewhere else, even if it's open when all others restaurants are closed, even if the restaurant looks beautiful and the street so frenchy and nice,... More

Sent hear by Holiday Inn staff as were all patrons around me. The food is french and they have a nice on-site cutting station for cold cuts and sausage. the menu is french essentials, nothing extravagant. The price was a little on the pricy side, I took the set menu (cold beat soup, chicken breast with veggies and mint pear... More

Many visits have proven great frites, salade de lentilles and soups. Fun service, nice atmosphere. This is a classic standard. Not the least expensive restaurant in the area, but always enjoyable.

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.
