le Pot de Fer

I am not a believer, be sure of that, but I have never questioned whether to not d’Artagnan and the Three Musketeers were once regulars here. The place is certainly old enough. I believe that the building was constructed in 1539. There really is no reason to doubt these facts, and therefore, Le Pot... read more

Got a good but in our view entirely undeserved write up in our guide book. Classic French food but served up badly cooked (my snails far too salty). Room itself is pleasant (Three Musketeers sort period/theme) but service is indifferent as is the food. Like so may places in Paris aiming at tourists a disappointment. The French classics look good... More

Fantastic experience. Easy online booking. Excellent value for Paris. Fourth visit,but first time in the evening. This is a place where locals go! We were the Brits there and once it filled up it had a lovely ambience. Despite the waiter’s slightly gruff exterior he was fab with a little toddler on thbe next table and we enjoyed a really...

The food was really really bad. These other reviews suggest otherwise so perhaps this place has recently changed hands or the real chef was away. We were served onion soup the was basically hot water with loads of tasteless melted cheese, the steak main was not great quality (although well cooked but a rubbish cut) with odd chips (very brown...

We were taken to this lovely old restaurant as a coach party group. It was delightful. Traditional rustic place set in a narrow street. The food was delicious, I had the Seafood starter followed by Salmon. Both cooked to perfection. My husband had the Greek salad followed by Steak. He said the steak was one of the best he'd had...

I came here as part of a group of four people for dinner at around 8 at night. It was very busy in the restaurant, but we managed to get a table. The food was fantastic, prices were decent, and we had a great time. The staff was a little standoffish, but I suppose that was due to the fact... More

This restaurant is a bit of a Paris institution and has been there for centuries.the food was acceptable but not memorable but reasonably priced especially for Paris .We had no problem with the service but just found the experience a little underwhelming.

We arrived before the kitchen was set up for the dinner service, but we seated. However the waiter was moody and not interested in making us feel welcome. However me and boyfriend ignored it knowing that generally french service isn't the best. This bad service continued throughout the evening, we obviously felt a bit awkward but we read it about...

If you take the metro to Place Monge, you'll find a great shopping street with tiny little restaurants, boutiques and fresh produce markets. The Place Monge is only about 6 blocks long and the Pot de Terre is at the top of the street that makes the first arm, at the top of the hill. This place is terrific for... More

We strolled up and down the rue du Pot de Fer reading all of the menus posted for all of the inviting restaurants with their colorful displays. We finally settled here and felt we made a great choice. My son said a 'must do' was to have Ratatouille in France and this restaurant offered 'Tartatouillie' because it was served on... 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.
