Lovely Lunch by the Seine

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... read 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

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

If you are an American, or one who is not fluent in French, you are not wanted in this restaurant. We were spending our wedding anniversary in Paris. It was our 13th stay in a city we love. On many visits we have made a point of eating at Voltaire. Previously the restaurant had been most enjoyable despite our being... More

We used to live around the corner from Le Voltaire and no matter how many great restaurants we enjoyed, nothing could match the food, atmosphere and professionalism of the waiters. Tonight's meal at LeVoltaire closed the deal. I've had better food at In economy class on American Airlines. The waiters were snubbing us speaking french while carrying on in English... More

Fantastic partridge, wonderful and helpful servers, and the type of Left Bank feel you imagine when you think of Paris. Great night!

Delicious lunch shared with my mom and aunt after a trip to the Louvre. Great service even with our minimal French and we would've definitely gone back again if time has allowed. My aunt and I both had the moules frites and at the end of our trip agreed that this was one of the best meals we enjoyed while... More

My wife and I dined here tonight. We loved it. The waiters had impeccable manners and service, and helped us with the extensive menu. I had the oeufs "James" to begin and it was a great start. My wife had the lapin and I had the boudin noir. Both dishes came with generous plates of puréed carrot and potato, a... More

Our lunch was ok. I enjoyed a good vegetable soup and a sandwich. We CLEARLY ordered the special Quiche Loraine et Salade. The Salade never came, so when I asked the waitress to charge us for only the quiche she rudely claimed we ordered it all but only wanted the quiche and it would be the same price.

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.
