What a place - good work Freddo!

The food, the character, the price. It's well worth a visit if you're in that area. When your food arrives you'll find it difficult to believe that it's produced in the tiny area just as you enter. Then when it comes to paying you'll be amazed considering you're in Paris. We had a great... read more

We visiting some friends living in Paris, and were looking at places to go for dinner on a Saturday night. We called ahead and they were happy to accommodate us, requesting that we come a little later in the evening as we had not planned this in advance. We arrived to find an absolute gem! Downstairs in an old cellar,... More

We first saw L'Ecurie in a Telegraph review of Paris restaurants. From the outside, we wondered what we had walked into - and then we went down a steep flight of steps, ducked through a doorway and into an old cellar, lit mainly by candlelight. We all had steak, which tasted great. The chips were very good too, as were... More

This is a very small but cozy restaurant that offers an ambiental and a gastronomic instant trip to the countryside. Visit if you like to go back in time when things were simpler. Skip if you look for luxury or don't feel comfortable in a small place.

One of our favorites in Paris. Never disappoints, the (bavette )steak and chocolate mousse on the €17 menu are highly recommended. Nice touch in getting the free aperitif and digestif too!

I was looking for a traditional restaurant near our hotel in the Sorbonne area that wasn't too expensive as we were travelling on a budget. Stumbled across some good reviews on Tripadvisor and thought I would give this one a shot. Very glad I did! We were the first customers at lunch time and opted for the 17 euro set... More

We love this place. Sitting outside in the day time when its warm is great but its also lovely to sit downstairs in the cave when its cold out. The only problem is the toilet... Don't bother!!! It's pretty gross given the building is so old. We always order the 17 euro set menu which is great, the bavette and... More

In the olden days (i.e. the early 80s) you could eat your way down the nearby rue des boulangers in a variety of creaking wooden-beamed rooms where you were shoved in next to complete strangers, there were always red and white gingham table cloths, and you felt as if a scene from An American in Paris was about to explode...

This was our third visit to L'Ecurie and we were to see that nothing had changed! The simple well cooked food, the warmly egalitarian staff and the rustic atmosphere make for a very enjoyable experience. We discovered subsequently that this building is shown in a photo of three Resistance fighters on 22 August 1944 at the Liberation of Paris.

This is a fantastic throw back to the 70s, when we first started to holiday in France. Then, in virtually every street and village there were simple authentic bistros serving an excellent robust three course meal for a very reasonable price. Now, virtually all of them are tourist traps, with catering designed on the principle that, 'Nobody ever eats here... 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.
