This meal hit the spot after a long day of exploring

We happened across this restaurant after a long day of walking all over the city. Boy, the service was really efficient and the food was very tasty. We both had the beef steak which was excellent. We had been craving some greens after splurging on macarons, crepes and other sweets all day and were... read more

Went for dinner, wasn't looking for anything overly elaborate, just some simple cafe cooking. Ordered off the 18.50€ menu... I think that was a mistake. There was also a 34.50€ menu, but the items we wanted (beef bourguignon, roast lamb) were on both menus - the cheaper menu served the smaller-portioned mains with fries (vs gratin potatoes) and offered a...

We booked this place for lunch on our first full day in Paris – because it was an easy walk from where we were staying; the prices are moderate for classic French; and it had decent reviews. The first clue that things might not go well was that the menu included English translations – always a sign that things have... More

Our last night in Paris, we chose to just wing it, and walk around to find a great spot. We stumbled upon Perraudin, and we couldn't have been happier. This is truly a spot where the locals go. We ordered a bottle of wine, a few appetizers, entrees, and shared a dessert. The food was excellent. We don't understand some... More

No trip to Paris, for us, is complete without a visit to RESTAURANT PERRAUDIN. Every time we go to Paris, this is one place we always visit.. Situated near the Sorbonne and The Latin Quarter you really cannot get more French than this. The atmosphere is like nowhere else, a truly warm and traditional place, with wonderfully, exquisite food, and... More

I was rather disappointed with this place. I don't know what I was expecting. I guess the days when boeuf bourgignon and French onion soup were regarded as a special treat, are long since gone. These traditional French dishes need to be cooked and prepared to perfection if they are going to be regarded as something spécial ---and priced accordingly.... More

However not anymore the one I experienced 20 years ago. The food is good but maybe too expensive for what they offer

If you want to go back in time to the 1900, this is the place. This is a typical old restaurant where time seems to have stopped. The service is friendly, efficient and excellent, nothing to complain about. Wines are very good, so are the meals as well as the quality. It is different and well worth an experience without...

This is a delightfull small restaurant with good priced and well cooked food. We rocked in about 10.00pm after spending a night visit to the Lourve and were welcomed by the owner who speaks English. We had a great meal and wine at a good price.What more do you want? I usually am disappointed with a lot of the French... More

I very much wanted to like this place, since it is close to where I live and has a nice ambiance. Unfortunately, I had one of the most bland and boring meals I have ever eaten in Paris (or anywhere else, for that matter). The menu was fairly standard French food, and not too extensive. I chose the pot au... More

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.
