Three people with three aperitifs, entrée, plat principal, and dessert plus an €80 bottle of wine cost €200. Quite reasonable given the quality of the... read more

We went for an early diner with my children. Everyone loved it, even the eleven year old. Very French.

Showed up with 5 people and no reservation (it was a long day) after a tiny bit of repeating "5? No booking." And appearing shocked we would attempt to get in they found us a table! Food was wonderful, service was great and the prices were very reasonable for gourmet food.

This was our favorite meal while in Paris. It is out of the way, right next to the College of France on a very narrow street. Do make reservations, we didn't and had to eat outside on a cool evening.

My wife and I visited the restaurant, and we knew the moment we entered the place that this was the real deal. Great genuine bisto cuisine for a resonable price. The restaurant was packed with only local parisians, and the atmosphere was fantastic. Service was excelent too. 3 courses with wine and coffee for two was about 80 euroes. We'll... More

We ate here on a Sunday evening. It's a very small place. Pros: had a lovely piece of trout and some nice wine. Cons: atmosphere was lacking (bad 80's pop music, loud diners next to us), most of the food was just OK, and the service was extremely slow and clumsy. There are plenty of great choices nearby, so I'd... More

We booked this restaurant for our first night in Paris based on trip advisor recommendations. We booked for 7.30 and were the only ones in the restaurant for a while - we ate at 9 after that! The food was fantastic, I had l'escargot for the first time and loved it, while my husband had a scallop flan and the... More

As soon as you walk through the door the warm welcome make you think you have made the right decision in coming here. This feeling continued with the choice of food on the menu. Everything was superb. All in all a dining experience not to be missed.

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.
