This restaurant is fantastic! We had the special, flank steak and gratin potatoes- wow so decadent and light at the same time. We sampled several desserts and everything was delicious. This is a must go to if you are visiting the 5th.

Amazing dinner, exceptional service. Bar manager was helpful in getting us to our next point by detailing each stop and transfer we need to to take on the unfamiliar metro system.

I went there with a group of friends and the owner met us at our table and was very nice. This is a great place to nibble some typical French delicacies just to have a glass of wine. The prices are similar to other brasseries and the atmosphere is nothing bout of this world, but it delivers good food with... More

Excellent friendly and quick service. Good range of dishes and specials. Wine recommendations also very good. This is not a gourmet restaurant but good local fare at reasonable prices.

Both meals were served quickly, looked beautiful in the bowl, tasted wonderful, and were extremely good value for the Euros we spent. The drinks menu was great. I had a Grimbergen beer in a beautiful glass goblet. The beer was right on my palate The... More

We went here for lunch because my traveling companion wanted to try confit de canard . We were not disappointed. Crispy skinned tender succulent duck on top of perfect fried potatoes with garlic. And a nice little salad. All for 13,90. I had a salad with shrimp, crevettes and smoked salmon. It was enormous and delicious. The service was gracious... More

Called in here on the off chance after walking in the area. Very nice , relaxed atmosphere with kind and gracious service. We lingered over a long meal with nice wine. Bavette steak well cooked with fine frites. I'd definitely return. Made for a relaxed enjoyable evening which is what I want from a bistro.

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.
