If you want something that is tucked away and might be a brasserie style experience it looks the works. I have been twice and you might wonder why. well in a sense I thought the first time it was Ok ish. but this time you have to say the frogs legs were either swamped in garlic or fried up.

The food is a bit better than average, but not great. The frogs legs were quite good, we had them two ways, provencal is best. Duck breast was good. Lamb shank was good, though a little fatty. But this place is not really about the food, it's the place. A small, eclectic space with maybe 10-12 tables with ancient tiled... More

I spent two weeks visiting my cousins, who live in the neighborhood near this restaurant. Of all the meals we are out while I was there, this was my favorite French meal of the trip.

A quiet but unique restuarant on a French side street. Loved the decor and the food. Probably the most expensive meal we had in Paris but well worth it to try local food cooked by locals.

Everything was very good, food was delicious for 4 separate meals delivery was fast (<20 minutes). Wine pick to dish was very good, staff was polite, one can order taxi and pack unfinished food for no extra cost. Interior is filled with 'frog' (visit and you will understand what I mean) and it gives place it's own unique style which... More

Six students and myself had dinner here, one had frogs legs, another had duck, but I aced them all with escargot and some of the best salmon I have had anywhere. I do not know what was in the sauce, only that it was superb. It was served searing hot. Very highly recommended.

Ma and Pa and two grown-up daughters liked the look of the outside whilst looking for supper so thought we'd try...this was quite a find. Starters were snails and foie gras creme brulee (not as weird as it sounds if you leave your previous creme brulee expectations at the door)which we shared and followed with seared beef, 'big pig' which...

Be sure to try some different French specialties. My absolute favorite is the assortment of Foie Gras (with red wine, pineapple and as crème brûlée) and their frog legs

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
