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 found this restaurant by accident when making a walk an August evening. The whole experience was very pleasant. Very good food at a normal Parisian price, for that neighbourhood. And a very pleasant service, which is rather rare around St Michel. The terrace location added to the charm, but this may be less the case when it's cold or... More

The tables are close together but the atmosphere is cozy and fun. The staff was very helpful both with the food and our french. We started with an artichoke... More

Discovered this place via Rough Guides and managed to get a table for three just after it opened at 7pm without a booking. Very quickly it filled up and they had to turn people away in droves so reservations are recommended. Great atmosphere but a small place so never too noisy. Friendly staff by Parisian standards, fantastic traditional food presented... More

We ate here during our recent trip to Paris through a recommendation from a friend. The restaurant was not very busy when we got there, but after 30 minutes all 10 tables were full with both Parisians and tourists. The host was very sweet and attentive. I ordered the duck breast and my husband got the duck confit. Our friends... More

This place is a complete find!! Went for romantic dinner with my husband on our recent trip to Paris. He wanted to go to the restaurant that we always go to so I had to convince him but boy was he pleased with our decision!! Fab food and very friendly and helpful staff. It was expensive but worth every cent

Delicious rustic food, great service and lovely house wines. We visited on a Sunday evening, having booked in advance over the phone, and enjoyed an excellent meal. Of particular mention were the goat's cheese with beetroot entrée, delicious scallops in a provencale sauce and hearty braised pigs' cheeks. The cheese plate was stunning - a tasty selection of St Nectaire,... More

This Restaurant is really the best place where we eat in Paris. The food is unbelievably tasty and looks great! The stuff is friendly and helps to make a good choice. Prices are not high (for Paris). And it works on Sundays till 22-30. Highly recommend!

Servide is great as the owners are on the floor. The food is typical French and not experomental or innovative - this is why we like it. I had the casserole de... More

Lovely little restaurant, serving delicious food. We started with foie gras and a salad of beetroot and goat's cheese, followed by duck and scallops. All were good to very good. Nice bottle of Burgundy pinot noir to accompany these delicacies. Shared a very delicious tarte tatin as a dessert. Mix of tourists and locals; great and friendly service. Not cheap,... More
