Wery good traditional French restaurant

Run by two brothers who are enthusiasts when it comes to traditional French cooking and wines. We dined there June 8th, and was recommended the meal of the day, with the recommended wines. Very tasty, and we were well satisfied when we had finished the main course. I was not certain if I could... read more

We had dinner here our first night in Paris. It was very low key - quiet atmosphere, which was odd since it was Fete de la Mistique. Every other restaurant we passed was alive with music, so eating here was a bit of a party pooper (at least on that day). We were the only customers in the restaurant the... More

Small neighborhood place. They start you with a portion of rillettes, tasty and not too greasy. The foie gras d'oie (terrine) is a win. They make it in house, and you can buy it to take out. Perhaps that is the best way to patronize this restaurant. The pressed leeks were cold with a cold roasted egg. Perhaps if it... More

At first we were worried we would not be treated as well as the French clientele in restaurant. There were reasons for my concerns initially not worth mentioning because it turned out to be more of a "loss in translation". The owner recommended fantastic dishes and took great care in choosing wine parings. At one point our party was having... More

A friend recommended Les Ronchons since it was so close to our hotel in Paris and boy do we owe him huge thanks. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our very first dinner in Paris. We arrived just a few minutes before the owner Jean-Jacques did and were immediately impressed by the bags of fresh produce and... More

We found this hidden gem on the Quai de La Tournelle just west of the Pont de La Tournelle using a restaurant finder program called LaFourchette. Reviewers there made what I thought were exaggerated claims as to the quality of the food and the company, but we gave it a go. After the first dinner there, we decided there was... More

We came to Les Ronchons tonight after seeing good reviews on tripadvisor and it has been the best meal we have ever had in Paris. The menu of the day was lamb sweetbreads with black truffle sauce... Exquisite ... the cheese was a super follow on, again with truffle centre!! And the best Rhum Baba ever ... We recommended it... More

Our hotel (Les Dames du Pantheon) recommended this restaurant as ideal for simple but good French cuisine. Not so inviting from the street but a very different story inside. With meagre French language skills, we needed help with the menu but need not have been concerned. The front-of-house was charming & helpful & our food was wonderful. In addition, the... More

One of those little places only the locals know about, few tourists in sight. Memorable lunch today, chatting with owner Dominique Besnard. Excellent entrée (cold cucumber soup on a hot day!), even better main course: great fish and provencal vegetables. But the winner was an absolutely original dish: farm-bread chicken, delicately prepared and with a lovely juicy texture, served in... More

Two adults and a child: fish of the day (me), beef and duck respectively. I tasted all three dishes and they were very well prepared. The fish was accompanied by an exciting sauce which made my meal fantastic. Serving came surprisingly fast and we got all the attention we needed from the nice waiter. Definitely a place I would go... More

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.
