Excellent Food, Small and Cozy

The restaurant is right next to the Pantheon. A bit off the beaten path. The restaurant was filled with English speakers, but it seems like locals also really enjoy this restaurant. The food is very filling. It is traditional, home-style, French cuisine. The atmosphere is very cozy and... read more

The restaurant is right next to the Pantheon. A bit off the beaten path. The restaurant was filled with English speakers, but it seems like locals also really enjoy this restaurant.

We found L'Estrapade when the highly rated restaurant we were trying for was closed (on Saturday evening!). It's a small, cozy & friendly neighborhood place near our apartment in the 5th arrondissement. Theirs was the best foie gras of our week in Paris. The food was high quality & well prepared, unpretentious and delicious for both our meals there. Staff... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the staff at our hotel right around the corner. We went in the middle of the week so we were able to make last minute reservations. We speak very little French and they were very accommodating answering all our questions. This service received was unlike any other any other we received while dining... More

Two couples went to Bistrot L'Estrapade our second night in Paris based on my brother's recommendation, and it was a delightful little place. Not surprisingly, a small restaurant so you'd be advised to make reservations. It's located a couple blocks from the Pantheon - it's convenient without being exactly on the beaten path. The space is nice and cozy, the... More

Tiny restaurant, we booked earlier in the day while wandering through the latin quarter. Read reviews, including T.A. and it lived up to the high billing. Very authentic french food, not overworked, with simple service but totally focused on making the meal experience go well. Complaints about tourists invading the place may be valid, there were other americans there when... More

Have been coming here a while - it is now packed out with tourists (mainly Americans) due to success on tripadvisor! (I assume) The restaurant is small and cosy and diners are squeezed in. The staff are very friendly and there is a reasonable choice on the set menu. We enjoyed our starters and deserts but the main courses are... More

Brought family here, pre-booked on line. Beautiful pear, chorizo and blue cheese bake and great fish dish. Prize dish was the pineapple with ginger dessert. Staff were excellent. Would recommend

My husband and I dined here earlier this month and had a great meal. It is a tiny little place run by a husband and wife team. We made reservations in advance but they weren't full on this particular Thursday night. I started with a baked pear in a filbert crème sauce - yum! My husband had the escargot which... 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.
