Superb Food for a Birthday Celebration

The restaurant was a 10 minute walk from our hotel, and we chose it for reviews, the menus and the cave-like quality of the main room. We opted for the a la carte menu (there were tasting menus also): we were both extremely happy with our choices. The service was faultless, friendly and extremely... read more

save your money. Do not go. It is a trap. The person from Michelin than gave one star must be fired. Food was just below any reasonable standard.

This restaurant is situated in an exciting part of Paris, the St Germain district. It's a small, but very romantic setting. The food is creative and exceptional. Ignore reviewers complaining about the portions, the cuisine is rich and plentiful in flavour and won't leave you empty. I had the pleasure of a tour of the cellar on my last visit,... More

My husband and I were in Paris for our anniversary and decided to have a really special dinner. The service was magnificent and the food was truly genius, beautifully presented and with flavors/complexity of the food was wonderful, really delicious. Please note that it is very expensive, and if you do the courses with wine pairing, you are looking at... More

My friends eat here every time they come to Paris, which is quite frequently; and they invited us to share this establishment's culinary delights on their recent trip. Located in the buzzing St Germain district it's very interesting, especially if you eat in the renovated subterranean cellar, very cosy and intimate. I think the chef had an off day, I... More

This was my first visit (with spouse and son) and won't be the last. We took the cheapest available lunch menu at 40 euros with a choice of two starters, two main dishes and cheese or one of two desserts. Everything was original and very good, a nice compromise between creative cooking and common sense, from the "amuse-bouche" to the... More

I recently enjoyed a decadent, truffle-filled culinary journey at La Truffiere. Every dish had that distinct truffled note, incorporated in a way which complemented the other ingredients. Dishes ranged from truffle-studded scallops to a delicious truffled oxtail stew. I'm not normally a fan of oxtail as I've had a few unpleasant experiences, but this dish made me an oxtail convert...

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.
