We ended up here for lunch as our first choice, Terroir Parisien, was closed for August. We enjoyed the food - it was probably the most refined of our trip - but we found the atmosphere to be a bit stiff. There weren't a lot of people here for lunch - it's in a quieter section of the Latin Quarter.... More

Found a special on line 30% off reservation & got there for 7.30 pm when it was fairly empty on the same day. Staff speaks OK English and ordered the 29 Euro 3 course meal. Half a litre house red wine which was fine. We had the seafood cold soup, mine was the gazpacho of green asparagus with poached egg.... More

I've just been to this place with my husband. We've got complete menu + wine. Everything tasted great. We ordered two different meat dishes, pork ribs and lamb. They both melted in our mouth. We enjoyed our desserts as well. Parfait was exceptional. Service is very attentive, gentle and helpful. They speak English very well. Price is not cheap but... More

Marrie Carrie (Paris 6) The fixed menu is 25 euro for appetizer + main (and 28 to include desert) Got a gazpacho (free) to start (should have been colder) The appetizer was very interesting, with quid in a soup with an ice cream (tomato?) The main of fish was only OK.... More

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...

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.
