Service: friendly. Tapas: very good. Steak: they don't know how to cook it. I asked a medium-cooked sirloin steak and I got a chewy, gummy piece of meat. Very tasty, but simply impossible to chew and swallow. I sent it back, asking for something similar....More

The coffeee was fine, the service decent, but it was full, and with a lot of weird people too! This is the kind of place where the (often delightful) French tendency to sit for hours without consuming things could and probably should be clamped down...More

My partner and I tried this place for dinner tonight. The service was good. The waitress was friendly. However the food was terrible. My partner had the steak - this was an incredibly thin, uneven piece of meat which was folded over to give the...More

We had a wonderful meal on Saturday night in the private upstairs room which we'd booked for our group of 30. We pre-ordered a 2 course meal and drinks for 20 euros and were delighted with the quality of the steak and salmon and home-made...More

The only nice thing here is the view. The service was dismissive. I ordered one of the specials and as my husbands plat was being served they announced they were out of what I ordered. I reordered their Magret de Canard....what a mistake. It was...More

We had a salad and the croque and both were very good. The Italian salad was a nice surprise as it came with a little bowl of pasta and some ratatouille. Service was good and prompt and it wasn't too expensive. Locals seem to love...More

We stop here for breakfast every Sunday we are in Paris – Nearest Metro is Censier Daubenton. Such a lovely spot with the church bells and the little shops. Service is reasonably quick and they give you a chance to speak French, which we really...More

This is one of the best of its kind in the 5th arr. Specially early in the morning and late before midnight. A beautiful feeling of the whole square of Saint Medard. It's a must.

Great service, very friendly. Wonderful French fries. Everything was very fresh. I would recommend this café. We stopped after grocery shopping on the Rue Mouffetard. We had the tapas and the croques.

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

Le Saint Médard reopened in April 2014 after an important renovation. The menu is a mix of chic snacking and Parisian brasserie cuisine. Make sure you don't leave without a taste of our famous Nutella tiramisu!
