Lovely French bistro restaurant close to the Pantheon

Very good restaurant with a traditional feel eg little tables with red and white checked table clothes and decor. Good solid French food and not too over the top. Friendly staff, who were very accommodating with us and our 10 week old baby. Would recommend.

We had an extra evening in Paris as a result of complicated rail logistics and pulled this place out of a guide - well worth it, really good and well-founded bistro cooking. If you're visiting, this place definitely fits expectations of a traditional Paris restaurant. As expected, the wine list worked very well. Staff were very friendly as well.

We actually found this restaurant quite by accident while searching for a different restaurant. We were tired from a long day of sight-seeing and it was very cold out. Stepping into the restaurant is like stepping into the past. The décor is lovely and the staff work hard to keep the atmosphere intimate. If the door didn't close quickly after... More

Located near the Luxembourg RER Station Perraudin is a small but welcoming bistro. The food is wonderful, reasonably priced and the place is often packed so if you are a group or want to go at a weekend please remember to book. The starters and desserts are the stars especially the Profiteroles which are just amazing.

I wouldn't say Perraudin is an iconic restaurant. It's hasn't got such pretention, yet you really feel like you're in Paris, in a time warp. The food is good, honest, classic old family recipes and reliable. Such old style dishes like "tête de veau sauce ravigotte" remind me of my grandmother's cooking and I go specially to Perraudin whenever I'm... More

Small little place in the area near our hotel. The food was solid and reasonable. One could get a 3 course meal (starter, main dish, dessert) for less than 20 euros which is not bad IMHO. We found the onion soup delicious as well as the au gratin potatoes. The lamb was good also. This is not a 5 star... More

Even though the staff was very busy, we got friendly service and we like the basic food. This is not fancy, but good traditional type french food. We will be back.

Nice typical place, traditional decor and traditional food. The set menu brings a warm herring salad, good steak tartare, lovely île flottante for dessert, a very drinkable house wine. Fast friendly service, goo atmosphere. Not scenic though even with Pantheon round the corner. There are no tables outside, and no views from the windows. Just use it to have a... More

After reading some TA reviews, we were disappointed in our dinner at Perraudin. There was nothing special about it at all. My husband had the lamb, I had the beef bourguignon, and they were adequate, nothing more. Our dinner was rushed, and we think it was because a table of about 16 tourists with their guide came in and became... More
