Superb!

Courteous and patient service for a non-French speaker. They didn't charge me for a glass of wine I couldn't drink. The restaurant was quiet and elegant. Unfortunately, the food was dull. For that kind of money, there's better out there.

I wasted an embarrassing amount of my life debating whether or not we should eat dinner here. It was recommended by a friend who attended Cordon Bleu in Paris, but I needed to get my own intel before I could commit. The mixed TripAdvisor reviews made me nervous. I also wasn't impressed that their signature dish is roast chicken. (Side... More

Hidden in a back street off the main walk. This is a smartly presented restaurant serving classic French cuisine done well. It's a little expensive but would make a great place for a date night. As this is right in the heart of the main tourist area of Paris it speaks volumes that many of the clientele (while we were... More

We stay in Paris at a spot a short distance from this restaurant and eat there regularly. It's a middle of the road place with nice tables, well spaced, not too much noise, and good service and food. I recommend it.

A very warm comfortable restaurant, with tables well spaced so as not to crowd others. The food is classic, but without excessive sauces or a huge amount of ingredients. It was comfortable for me as a solo traveler, with attentive service and an excellent Dover sole.

We came to this restaurant with high expectations, having had a wonderful meal 12 years ago at another restaurant operated by the well known chef, Jacques Cagna. This restaurant, located in a charming neighborhood on the Left Bank, offers a casual atmosphere and creative cuisine, which was perfect for us on the evening we visited. I had a piece of... More

Tucked away on Rue Christine this tiny street offers several good spots. La Rotisserie accepted and honored our reservation on a busy night - attentive service, interesting and quite good menu --- the food and service were of high quality and pricing reasonable. Suggest reservations early in the day or evening. Lovely decor, too

Booked on-line, no problem. Table waiting when we arrived. A party of six and we tried dishes across the menu. Everyone very pleased with dishes - no exceptions (veggie thru fish to roast). One point of advice - the "signature" rotisserie chicken will not overly impress Brits used to Sunday roast (it's unusual for Paris but "so what" for Brits).... More

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
