Is 80 Euros for Turbot the most expensive fish dish in Paris?

We joined a group of six for dinner on a Friday evening. Interior dark and outside on Quai Voltaire noisy with traffic.The dog-earred hand-written laminated menu belied the fact that it listed some of Paris's most expensive dishes. 80 Euros for turbot, 61 and 55 Euros for beef filet dishes, 23... read more

Don't go here, ever! Rude, poor quality and expensive. My wife's omelete was visibly, barely cooked, served soupy and had to be sent back. My wine was about a shot glass size served in a water glass, about 1/2 the size of the other French patrons. The sandwiches were thrown together. Although they knew English they chose not to speak...

Was there during the recent Paris heat wave, temperatures were 93 Fahrenheit at 5 pm. Food was more classical French with wait staff in white jackets and a more upscale bistro style meals. Service was impeccable -- lots of plates, flatware, and great extras. With my small roast chicken (poussin), I was served wonderful French fires, creamed potatoes, creamed sweet... More

The food is really good traditional French Cuisine made as it has to be. The restaurant is small and it is very dificult tobook a table there mainly for dinner.... More

Stopped in here between the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay for a quick lunch and was pleased with the quality of the food, the service and the prices. We only had a light lunch with a glass of rose each for just on 30 Euros. Quick service meant were in and out quickly and on our way for more museum hopping.

Went here because people said you should go there. It's famous but Antoine the current owner who took over from his father was rude and really couldn't give a hoot what your experience was. All French menu and didn't want to go over any items in English. Stood there tapping his pad with an agitated uncomfortable non welcoming feeling. I... More

This restaurant is hyped as a reliable stalwart but our party of four was terribly disappointed by the quality of service and food. Unfortunately this evening's tone was set by placing us at a small table for two and we were constantly bumped and pushed by staff. This in the setting where there were larger open tables available as we... More

We stopped here for a quick bite on our way to Le Louvre and had a lovely meal. A simple Quiche Lorraine with salad and bread, very tasty. If you just want a quick snack I would recommend sitting on the bar side, much more relaxed and friendly than the restaurant. Also, head over there early as it isn't as... More

Really enjoyed my first visit to this restaurant - I went for a business meal with colleagues who spoke French so made the whole experience very good. The menu had some unusual choices but a good range of options.

Never disappoints. The menu is long and you will talk yourself on and off dishes until the waiter finally arrives. The had salad and bisque to start and pheasant and sole for the mains. Excellent The couple with us had herring and charcuterie as the starters. The wines are superb and try to leave room for desert. The staff has... 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.
