This off-the-beaten-path restaurant is worth the effort to find it. It is small, but very comfortable and welcoming. Despite the diminutive kitchen, the chef manages to offer a lengthy, interesting menu of beautifully prepared meats and fish, almost all of which are served with a distinctive, personal culinary touch. And the prices won't put a dent in your wallet.

While its 73 year origins are Polish, the restaurant Wadja off boulevard du Montparnasse is a timelessly authentic Parisian bistro. It occupies a maple-stained storefront down a dim narrow street a block off the boulevard. It has the customary three-stool bar on the left and an exuberant red, green and white mosaic-tile floor. Behind its twenty-some paper-covered tables along banquettes,... More

Interesting menu. Tried the Utah oysters in red wine broth as starter. Chicken as main. And a complete mandarins boiled in sugar water during a l0time and with its juice from the cooking. Interesting combinations and twists. The recommended accompanying wines per glass were nothing special. 72 Euro for one person including champagne aperitif and a coffee. Worth the money?... More

Perhaps too much effort was put to surprise, indeed, the envelope was pushed to far. Out of three course meal one was decent, the rest was, how to say, difficult to explain. Go there and make up your own opinion, as I am not very fond of Michelin establishments. May be it was just an unlucky day. Whatever you do,... More

I work just the other side of the street and have had a chance to go to Wadja many times in the past but not until the last year have I tried it. It has a history related to the nearby artists' atelier and school--and you ought to take time to look up the history of the neighborhood. The menu... More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed this restaurant which was just across the small street from our Hotel des Artistes. If we hadn't been staying at this hotel, the we would have missed this true gem. We were very pleased enjoy the food, wine and most importantly the owner, staff and his many friends that were there that night.

Had dinner here last night and it was great. Small menu but it was awesome. Staff is only owner plus one but service was great. English was no barrier.

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel! The food was amazing! This is a place that locals go to and with our minimal French we were able to figure out the menu with the help of the staff who were very friendly.

If I could give Wadja a negative review, I would. We spent quite a lot of time trying to locate the restaurant and then were told we wouldn't be served. First, the reason was that they were too busy and the wait time would be 45 minutes. We explained that we did not mind waiting until they could seat us.... 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.
