We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary and went to Paris to celebrate! Not bad.... My husband wanted to go to a one star restaurant. We found this but were a bit suspicious about the truffels focus. But it was an excellent choice, one the pricy side, but for sure worth it for the overall experience, the food, the drinks... More

We had a brilliant anniversary dinner in Paris. The service was flawless, attentive and helpful but not smothering. The dining room is intimate yet not too tight. The cuisine is excellent, the wine list is very extensive and the courses never stop coming. It is somewhat formal so you should not dress too casually, but a jacket and tie is... More

Felt very welcome from when we arrived. Tried the lunch - a good way to try a Michelin experience without making a large empty space in your pocket. A cosy restaurant. Service was fantastic.

Great place to enjoy truffles in Paris. Off course the diner is expensive, but great truffle is never cheap in Paris. In terms of experience: - very nice personnel, perfect timing and good advice - we tasted the lobster, foie gras, parmentier; all excellent - wine list is amazing and the sommelier is great - better keep some space for...

We went to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and had the 135 € diner with the ‘prestige’ wine pairing. This is a six course dinner with truffle in at least 3 different plates, which for us was plenty since truffle are very aromatic. Personally, I would not do the full truffle diner, but this is more of a personal... More

This is a Michelin star rated restaurant and I was eager to try it. Overall, pleasurable. The oxtail over mashed potatoes was excellent, and the desserts were gorgeous and delicious. I especially liked the wild strawberries in chocolate surrounded by a red sugar shell. Foie gras was good, but I have had much better. Interesting combinations and beautiful presentation. Not...

La truffiere (truffle finder) is in the 7th on the left bank. Young crowd and neighborhood....but this is a one star Michelin that earns its stars. Truffle butter, truffle pecorino cheese....and even truffle suffle (delicious). If you are serious about truffles...this is the motherlode. Great service. Wine list was almost a big as a Bible.....but they had the Puligny Montrachet... More

Top service! I love the little "tabouret" for lady's bag. It is so sweet. The menu of midi is very nice, not too much, not too few, just fine. Good taste, I think it is worth to try at least once. The liste of wine is very rich, we found good wine with less interesting price.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
