We wanted to experience the best of French cuisine in an authentic French restaurant. The Buisson Ardent is this.... and more. As a party of four with only a little French vocabulary we were made to feel very welcome. Very attentive staff. And a wonderful setting with an intimate atmosphere. As for the food....well....this has to be simply the best... More

You need to book a table! The food was stunning and the service excellent. A real bistrot with a gastro food. You can choose your wine by glass. Everything was just delicious! Staff was pleasant . The bistrot is on the opposite of the Jussieu university. 2 mn by foot from the metro Jussieu We will go back

First off, the food is great here, easily worth 4...stars? Blips? Circles? You wanted a review about a restaurant right? The last point is for everything else about this place. Service was fast and efficient, staff was very nice and very helpful with the menu and wine pairings. If you're not from France, you may find the seating a bit... More

Our French hosts recommended this restaurant as it is local to them. Booking seems to be necessary as we tried on spec without success. Our experience was rather disappointing - although the menu and food was good the service really spoilt the evening. We booked at 7.30pm opening time. We ordered aperitifs which had not arrived before the first course.we... More

I needed a restaurant to take 10 people for dinner in this area of Paris. I also needed a pre-fixe menu and vegetarian options and it needed to be on a Sunday night! I went for lunch to try it out and it was amazing in every way. It was beautiful inside with the 1925 mural, the food was delicious... More

Definitely the best restaurant in this area. It serves very elaborate dishes, all made with fresh food. The cuisine is typically french. It's an expensive restaurant but it's completely worth it! Plus the service is impeccable and meets your expectations. I truly recommend this place for lunch or for dinner.

Thank Claire J

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.
