Fast food Paris style

Here's the clue - Parisiennes are prepared to queue at 7 pm for a table! No bookings taken, no menu choices for starters and main, just a choice of how you want your steak cooked. Really authentic Paris dining experience, we loved it.

It's just fab - no choice apart from how to cook your steak, what you want to drink, and whether you would want dessert after. The concept of having a beautiful plate of steak frites, enjoying it all, then giving you a second full serving of pleasure is hard to beat.

Le Relais de l'Entrecote is famous for only serving steak frites. I recently went for lunch with two friends and we all enjoyed it. They bring two generous servings of steak and fries so you are likely to leave feeling full! I'd like to go back and try their desserts sometime, too.

Just looking at the queue that forms at 18:30 (no reservations are accepted) you can tell this restaurant must have something... It is called quality and consistency! The quality of the food has remained constant throughout the years as has its very friendly service. So should you be around Saint Germain around that time and starve for a good entrecôte... More

Amazing steak frites!! Had to queue but definitely worth it. Great service, good prices and great atmosphere! Very confused by the reviewer who said there was no atmosphere, it was buzzing!

Brilliant restaurant - never quite been anywhere else like it. There is only one meal served here and everyone eats exactly the same. No menu to look at - the traditionally dressed french waitress just asked us how we wanted our steak cooked and what we wanted to drink. Then bread and a green salad with walnuts and a lovely...

We dined across the street at Maison de la Truffe and witnessed a continuous line at the front door of le relais de l'entrecote the night before trying it for ourselves. Got there 20 minutes before they opened and were seated innediately at 7;30. Waitress came and said" rare, medium or well done. I asked for a menu. Nope, rare... More

Great left bank location (A nice walk from our hotel), yes you probably will have to stand in line but be ready for that - it moves fast, bring some 'cups' of wine for the wait. The bustling atmosphere is fun, waitresses are even better as they create the bustle. I'll let other reviews tell you the servings - we... More

This Parisian restaurant - there are three in Paris and one in Geneva - does not take table bookings, there is no menu (except for deserts and a wine list) and just one main dish: loin of beef in a green sauce, speciality (and secret) of the house! Come early as people cue - in any weather - to get... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
