“Boutique style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This location is refinement of French on a small scale. Quiet without any hassle or bustle. My favourite location to find a small restaurant for a fixed price 2 or 3 course lunch with glass of wine and coffee.

“This is where you find St. Chapel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Don't be bothered abut the security line. It moves fast. Don't be an idiot and hold it up either. Treat it like an airport line.

“Must see in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This Ile had a small charming park at the point overlooking the Seine River and some of the most important historical buildings in France. Its easy to navigate through the streets. It was fun watching young people enjoying the park and areas near the river. In addition the lighting of the Ile at night is beautiful. If you want to eat at a specific restaurant, make reservations a few months in advance. Otherwise, take a chance on one of its numerous cafes.

“lovely time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

They have set up stands so that you can just sit and admire the front of Notre Dame. I could spend hours there. Also many wonderful shops to get a Croque Monsieur (fantastic ham and cheese on bread covered in more cheese) and souvenir shops to wander.

So wonderful to walk around and experience the Romance of Paris. The city is like nothing you will ever experience anywhere else.
