First of all, we used TripAdvisor to find restaurants open in Paris on a Sunday night - and we came up trumps! When you come up the steps at Jussieu metro station there is an initial feeling of disappointment. It is not a "typical" Parisian street - there is a modern university on one side and the other side is... More

Situated behind the Arab World Institute in a relatively quiet section of the Latin Quarter, Le Buisson Ardent offers some of the most sophisticated and delectable creations Paris has to offer. In a tiny two room seating area, a fixed price menu presents a diverse and well balanced set of starter, plat and dessert offerings for 39E per person. Required... More

A beautiful restaurant on a quiet street at the edge of the Latin Quarter. Very friendly and attentive staff. The service and food were outstanding! We visited on a Sunday and were delighted to find them open. We'll be back.

Came here with a dear friend: the menu was a cut above the standard steak/frite basserie fare. The staff members were extremely friendly and professional -- well done! The food was very good... I hope to be back!

I went here by the recommendation by a friend. I'm not a huge fan of French cuisine so I was sceptic already beforehand. I think service was ok even they maybe trying to be fancier than they actually are. At least we had really weird ppl around us - for example a couple who apparently had had already two bottles...

Really liked the French decor and cosy atmosphere. The service was good. However, the food was a strange fusion of French and Asian, and every dish seemed one step away from tasty. A touch more seasoning, a bit of chilli, a touch of spice and I think I would be writing a rave review rather than this lukewarm one. Having... More

The restaurant itself is typical French and beautiful old decorations, and give a great atmosphere. We had 3 courses and they were all amazing! The food is truly great and were by far the best meal we had in Paris. And the prices and low compared to the level of the food. And the service was so great and really... More

We booked dinner at Le Buisson Ardent through TripAdvisor for our last night in Paris, and we were not disappointed! The service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was romantic and cozy. The walls are covered in frescos that were painted in the early 1900s which add to the charm of the small restaurant which only has roughly 15 tables. Our... More

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.
