Still great!

We have been coming to Wadja for years. We used to live in Paris and frequented it about twice a month. Now we make the effort to come back whenever visiting Paris and it hasn't changed. It used to have a fantastic value midday menu which I am not sure it stil has. We visited last week and the... read more

My girlfriend and I were actually looking for a different resturant and unable to find it we asked in the hotel across the road. When told the resturant we were looking for had closed the concierge recommended Wadja. We are really glad we took this recommendation as the food was truly excellent. The friendly waiter was kind enough to explain... More

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.

I use to go for Lunch every week since many years and the menu at 20 Euros is of fantastic value. Certainly the best around Montparnasse ,is's not the boring junkfood you have in many restaurants at lunch but rather fresh cooked,original and delicious.Yesterday a somptuous gigot d agneau in a 20 euros menu!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
