Wife pulled me in and I was upset because I wanted a full restaurant experience but this was a small French bistro. I ate crow along with a delicious meal. She ordered the cossolette fromage which was amazing. Potatoes, choice of meat and cheese melted with wine in a bowl and I had a Scallops in wine sales plate. Both... More

We have visited this place on several occasions during our visits to Paris, and have never been disappointed. Cozy atmosphere and good classic food here. Also a lot less "touristy" than the rest of Rue Mouffetard. We are suckers for Confit de cannard, and this place is great for that dish. Would return again :)

We had chosen to dine at the place next door however that did not open till 7.00pm and as we had just arrived we wanted to eat and have a relatively early night after travelling most of the day. This restaurant was open and welcomed us warmly. Wait staff were friendly and spoke good English. Ordered our meals and were... More

In our previous to Paris three years ago, we stayed in an apartment near Le Mouffetard. When we stayed at the same, apartment, we returned to this restaurant where we enjoyed our meals again. We sampled the beef Bourgogne, salmon, and duck dishes. All were tasted and served by a very attentive staff. The wine list was of medium quantity... More

I've had a perfect brunch there! I sat outside and still the service was very caring. I'm vegetarian so I went for a toast with melted cheese and fried tomatoes on top (~10€). The herbs made it taste super good and I would definitely recommend it. In addition, I took the day's specialty - lemon tart - for a dessert.... More

Terrible experience already outside the restaurant. It is a very cozy, typical french bistro, and the interiour itself made us want to sit down. But when we met the staff, it was like we didn't even exist, so we just sat down on the table anyway. Our waiter was not happy with us speaking english, and his handgestures said: so... More

After having enjoyed the market on Rue Mouffetard, one of Paris most traditional open air market with very good food, we visited the Le Mouffetard to warm up. Very friendly welcome. We had a big bowl of Onion soup, Salat with Goat Cheese and a mixed sausage and cheese platter. All was fresh and tasty. Typical French Bistro style. Attentive... More

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.
