Description: Le Petit Pontoise...Aussi is found just steps from Notre Dame and serves food made from only the very freshest of produce. A good choice for gourmets and food lovers, here you can indulge in snails cooked in a creamy brie sauce, cheese fondant with honeyed almonds and walnuts or foie gras and apple chutney for starters followed by a fabulous fresh fish of the day or for meat lovers the delicious veal with ravigotte sauce; coq au vin or chateaubriand with pepper sauce. Dessert should not be missed either. Le Petit Pontoise...Aussi also has a terrace that is great for al fresco dining.

We were staying in Melia Colbert and so had wandered round Latin Quarter to check out places to eat. Le Petit Pontoise was literally round the corner and so we tried it out. It was fabulous. At the end of the day it is on an average side street with nothing to make it stand out but the young man/waiter/maitre'd... More

My friend had the lamb which was superb and perfectly cooked as was my was sister's chicken with potatoes. I'm like... More

This is a classic French restaurant serving classic French cuisine with good quality. Prices ate also a bit above average but reasonable for what you get. Good location in the fifth arrondissement, near many interesting place. Open all year round.

Cosy small almost to the point of intimate! Great food, the sort of classic French cooking you hope to find but rarely do. Great ingredients cooked in a traditional style nothing fancy but fantastic. Surprisingly good wines available at reasonable prices. Would I go back? Definitely, but I would aim to go there later in the evening to miss the... More

Small restaurant, very typical in its way of presenting things. But the food is delicious. And the personnel is very efficient (a bit too much ... the girl serving us was so efficient that she forgot to smile ... But you're in Paris, so nothing new under the sun ;o)) A very nice place to have good food, a good... More

We first ate at this restaurant 6 years ago and the food was wonderful so we returned again on our most recent trip to Paris in the first week of June. Once again, the food was absolutely delicious. This is a small restaurant, very close to the Seine/Notre Dame, and open on a Monday night (not many good restaurants are... More

Very nervous and impolite staff. After we decided to take only a main and a dessert, it only got worse. Would not go there again nor recommend it. Good food but price is too high for its worth
