A lovely, historic spot to enjoy a well-priced meal

High up near the Pantheon, on the corner of a couple of winding streets, is the classic "classic French bistro" L'Ecurie. We strolled in off the street, or we would have done if we hadn't eaten outside, which was a stroke of luck given both the apparent popularity of the place and the quality of... read more

My husband had been here several times and greatly enjoyed the experience. We were pretty disappointed with this visit. I didn't mind being squashed into a tiny corner,semi smothered by our coats hung on the wall. My six foot son didn't mind having to sit with his head tilted forward because you the cartwheel hanging on the wall above him.... More

L'Ecurie is a treasure undiscovered. The chef still cooks by fire in an ancient charming restaurant around the corner from the Pantheon. The food is fresh, delicious and made to order. The service is warm and helpful even though we speak only a few words of french. The filet with pepper sauce and fried potatoes was exceptional.

Always return! Very small so make a reservation. The owner Mini, has run this tiny restaurant for 50 years. Be sure to get the fillet which will be grilled to your liking!

My husband and I stopped into this place for a steak dinner. We ordered from the table d'hôte which included several well priced steak options. We both had the steak and frites dinner and it was great -my steak was bloody and had a nice texture (it was just how I like it). The wine selection was lacking, but the... More

I had been here before a few years ago and had lived with the memory of the melt in the mouth steak and exceptional service. So couldn't wait to go back and show a friend what I had been telling them about. It is still as charming and the service is still as friendly. The 17€ menu is great value... More

After a eurostar delay of 2 hrs we missed our booking at another restaurant and were lucky to come here. Arrived at 10pm and waited 20mins for a table for 4. Had a complementary drink while waiting. Excellent service, relaxed, great atmosphere. We mainly had the €17 set menu and couldn't fault it; had steak and frites with Roquefort sauce,... More

If you like steak, then this is the place to go as really, that's all they do. Steak and frites. We last dined here 14 years ago and neither it, nor its owner have changed at all. Olde worlde, rustic and very basic but food cooked well and friendly service. We'll visit again, but not leave it 14 years.

We went 3 years ago and again this week and it is pretty great. Very fairly priced and tasty food and wine. It is a solid steak place. Owners are a bit crazy (in a good way) and service isn't the best but it's part of the charm. Seating outside is nice with a view of a beautiful church on... More

Had a great time here. The delicious food was served quick and was piping hot. The staff were friendly and polite. We had the Lasagne which was very tasty. Thanks for a good meal.

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.
