Whenever I am back in Paris, the first thing I want to do is to come back to this small and lovely place. There are very few places like this where you can eat so well and at a very decent price in such a great atmosphere. Delphine and Greg gave me a very nice welcome the first time I... More

I found this place while searching for something close to our hotel in Montparnasse, and it was only 300m from our hotel with good reviews. My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and will try to go again before we leave Paris. The menu has great variety and the food has great character. Wonderful wine and dessert topped...

A lot of attention in the kitchen makes for some very flavoursome and enjoyable food. My son chose one of half a dozen cheeseburger options (along with the tartare, something of a house specialty). My wife opted for caramalised chicken, and I had a very good steak with superb mashed potato. Good wines by the glass, carafe and bottle. The... More

Visited here both lunch and dinner. The waitress who served my lunch hungry spouse was delightful and the Tartare and mash much to his liking! So off we go for dinner, as the electricity in our building was non existent this evening! I only had a rocket salad with bresaola sans the chevre, fresh and as expected. The tartare was... More

Tiny restaurant in Montparnasse. Delicious food especially the tartares and fish dishes. Also good deserts. Very popular so quite busy and noisy. Service is very nice given how busy they are. We went there twice.

Met a friend for lunch here at her suggestion. The food was bey nice and reasonably priced (it's Paris). The food was quite light which was a nice change from typical French food

This is a small restaurant with an exciting menu. Tartare is one of their specialities. This may not be for everyone however, the restaurant takes classic dishes to a new height. A regular burger is made to perfection. I had an eggplant, tomato, basil and mozzarella pasta. Every forkful was pure heaven. The next evening their grilled veal topped with... More

We have been twice this past week. It is small restaurant run by the owner Delphine. It is she who make you feel wanted as a customer and believe me this is not the usual in the restaurant world. The food is simple but very good. Being simple is not a slight here as pretentious food can be just that;... More

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.
