Quiet place, nice food

This place was recommended to me, and I fully understand why. A lot of restaurants in Paris are tourist traps, but this place has it all: Excellent food, reasonable prices and accommodating staff.

One of our favorite places in Paris. Tucked away on a little side street and easy to miss. The food was outstanding, service was great.

Based on reviews & location to our hotel, I reserved a table at Le Petit Prince de Paris for our 1st night in Paris. Coincidentally, this was my fiances birthday, so I wanted a special place for us to celebrate. This is a intimate restaurant, not too many tables, eclectic decor which just seemed warm & welcoming. Our French is... More

I never write reviews for restaurants, but this experience was so good I am doing so now. Typically French, dimly lit, quaint, stylish and busy! Magnificent food - the French onion soup was the best soup I have ever eaten...no kidding! There was also a well priced, good selection of wines. Service was friendly, with great communication. If you're staying... More

The food and wine were excellent, great, professional and very friendly service. Only one little remark, my main course arrived a bit cold, however I highly recomment that restaurant, it will give a very nice experience of... More

I had been here once before, 9 years ago, and had such a positive experience that when I returned to Paris late January 2014, it was an absolute must. My boyfriend and I had an even better experience this second time around - the pan-fried calamari and escargot in pastry (both appetizers) were the highlight, but everything was good. We... More

We stumbled upon this place by chance, and went back a few nights later as we liked the look of the menu. We were pleased that we manged to get a table despite not having booked and were quite excited as the place looked lovely. But no matter how good the food was, the service really was such a let...

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.
