This pub is a haunt of locals and managed by a warm and effervescent lady called Agnes! We stopped here for dinner and for an aperitif the following night! Just perfect if you're looking for a relaxed and friendly place for a bite to eat!

dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
