“An Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Went here on other recommendations from Trip Advisor. Was not disappointed. You enter upstairs into a tiny bar, with a few tables in another room. We were shown downstairs and suddenly you are in this most fantastic underground room - cave. We had the set menu and for this area of Paris, it was excellent value. Very simple, but hugely tasty. I had the tomato salad and my husband had the pate. It came with the most wonderful just cut loaf of fabulous artisan bread and a very garlicky mayonnaise for sharing. We had a pitcher of red wine to accompany this - what is not to like! I then had the entrecote and my husband had the lamb. Both pieces of meat were perfectly cooked and delicious-served with the most wonderful frites. No sweet for me, but my husband had the creme caramel, which was fabulous. They are used to tourists and treat you very reverentially. Go and enjoy.

“Exceptional value for money in central Paris.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We visited the restaurant whilst on holiday in Paris, with friends of ours who live in the Latin Quarter. Everything about the experience was fabulous, good,wine, value for money and ambiance. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff made you feel like part f the family, a truly enjoyable meal in a fantastic authentic atmosphere. A place that I will frequent on my future trips to the city of light.

“tiny place with plenty of charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Good value and kind of feels like you're eating in the back of someone's house but thats what the charm is all about. Food is good without being spectacular but the staff are so friendly and the prices are so reasonable that you forgive them any failings. Surrounded by plenty of other restaurants so you have plenty options nearby if its not for you. Recommend a drink the Bombardier pub around the corner afterwards!

“A bit of old Paris charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We happened upon this tiny little gem of a restaurant quite by accident. Just off the Pantheon square in the Latin Quarter, l'Ecurie is a treat not to be missed while in Paris!
The inside is cramped, old and chock full of character! You can see the chef expertly cooking cuts of top grade meat on open fire while patrons happily chomp down on their dinners and try and make themselves heard over the general laughter and clatter of a busy little resto! Very charming! We actually sat outside at one of the miniature little tables against the stone wall. It was a very pleasant summer evening and the setting was perfect to get into the mood ...
We ordered steaks. Now, while I am not a big steak eater - not so much because I don't like them but because it is so "rare" to get a really well made one - I have to say that the steaks at l"Ecurie were outstanding! Melt in your mouth and cooked to perfection! Make sure you order rare to medium - any more would be an insult! :) Topped off with a jug of vin rouge ... ahhh, what a perfect way to end a day of sight seeing in one of the most magical cities in the World! Bon appetit mes amis!

“unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Read any of the reviews below and they are all true. If you want characterless hygiene this is not for you. If however you want a crammed steak house, unchanged since the revolution it would appear with an owner that has the exact personality of the establishment. Don't order meat well done or expect elbow room or matching cutlery. Eat great meat char grilled, rustic pate and drink seriously quaffable vino at prices unheard of in Paris in the company of an owner who knows what he's doing and isn't going to change that because it doesn't fit everyone's sensibilities.
