Late dinner outside

We didn't have a reservation, but we sat outside with heating. A beautiful evening with a choir singing in a church down the street. The food was excellent and the staff friendly, they even understood my French!

Having wandered round the tourist part of the Latin Quarter the previous evening and not found any nice looking FRENCH restaurants we were taken out to dinner by Paris residents and we arrived here. The menu is small and wine list big (always a good sign) and varied. 3 courses for €32 is a bargain. Goats cheese was lovely, and... More

Went with my wife, took a while to find the place. Sat outside under the sun. The waiter was not especially friendly at first, insisting we sat beside another couple eventough it was near end of lunch and three other 4 seaters were empty, and stayed empty. But when we asked the waiter to recommend what was good, he was... More

Booked ahead for our family of five. We were treated rudely from the beginning. We were sat at the same table as a french couple who were given their food and drinks before us. It took 20 min just to get water while the couple next to us had great service. We tried very hard with our limited french but... More

Come for the 14.50 € lunch! Two courses, a glass of wine and a coffee . what's not to like? Vegetable soup flavoured skilfully with cumin to start and then either guinea fowl cooked with Moroccan spices or a small sirloin (bavette) with mashed potatoes. Very gluggable glass of Pays du Vaucluse wine from the South. I was a little... More

This restaurant served me and my girlfriend some very good food. You had a couple of starters, main coursers and desserts to choose from. I chose the lam as main course and it was a very good experience. The dessert I ordered was one of the most delicious I have ever tasted. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere friendly.... More

Well the restaurant was not as good as everyone is telling (in my humble opinion) The Dorad with coconut milk was missing some salt and tests. The mushroom in the tuna was tasteless and the tuna was OK. If I need to compare it to the place I was a night before Pierre Sang at Paris 55 Rue Oberkampf. Well... More

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.

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.
