This place offers creative cooking - good products and innovative preparations with a touch of spices. Try their 'cochon de lait' (piglet) or their lamb. My only criticism is that the menu doesnt change that often - but maybe thats what being consistently good takes. One of the good places on the Paris scene of creative bistros at reasonable prices.

I really liked this restaurant. I booked it on their website about a week before travelling to Paris and I'm glad I did as it filled up very quickly after we arrived at 8pm on a friday evening early in January. Just one thing about their website though, if your reading the English translation of the menu just double check... More

Le Pre Verre is a great little find, and their 14.50 Euro lunch is a bargain for high quality food and beverages. On this visit the appetizer was a delicious creamy zucchini soup, followed by a wild boar stew served with mashed celeriac and carrots. And, the price includes wine and a coffee. As we know the restaurant is almost... More

A friend from Paris took us there and we found it to be fun & the food was delicious. We got the 30 euros price fixed menu which was great. Not a lot of food but just enough. The crab & avocado appetizer was great, the prawn entrée was good and the dessert was divine.

The place is so popular, people gather in front of it's doors 30 minutes before opening, and i wondered why. Their offer is a miracle from the kitchen - choice, the way of serving food, how they treat guests, deserts.... and on the top of it all - prices are moderate for a 3 course meal. my family was super...

I went to this bistrot recommended by a friend. The food was very tasty, with some originality in the flavours combinations. Informal service in a relaxed atmosphere, full with local people. Very reasonable prices for Paris. I would certainly return the next time I go to Paris.

Chef Bruno Govaere is knocking dishs out of the gastronomic park night after night. I can testify having dined there three consecutive nights with no selection repeats. Solo in Paris can feel intimidating but the cast of le pre verre take you into the fold if you are willing. My favorite is the cochon de lait (pork roast) with crunchy... More

We stopped there after visiting the Cluny Museum. The place was quite busy which I always see as a good sign. Lots of locals. This is just down the block from the Sorbonne. We ordered La Formule which included entrée, main course, and glass of wine. We had the liver pate (not fois gras), roasted chicken with seasoned rice, and... More

We stopped for lunch before going to the Cluny Museum. I had a smoked duck salad, a wonderful venison with raspberry sauce and a pineapple macaron dessert. The Mr. had eggplant and watermelon (!) salad, grilled fish and chocolate truffle with molasses ice cream.

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.
