We had dinner at Cafe Med on Ile St. Louis on the recommendation of a friend who travels to France often, and always has at least one meal there. We made a reservation for 7:30 but arrived at 7:00 because we were unsure of our...travel time from our hotel. Unfortunately, a group of about 20 people from a tour group were being seated at that time, and this is a tiny restaurant. Nonetheless, we were seated at a nice window table, and received prompt service. (I’m sure it helped that the tour group was partaking of libations and appetizers in large quantity.) I had a cheese galette and my husband had a chicken (curry?) dish, and we found both to be very enjoyable. We were happy that we followed our friend’s recommendation, and this is a cafe we would return to visit in the future.More

It has been many years since we visited Brittany but we have fond memories of their galettes. Spotting this place brought those memories back and so we went for lunch. We washed it down with a delicious Breton cider.The front house was looked after by...just one lady with great efficiency. Would definitely go back.More

What a fantastic find - 15.90Euro for a set lunch of Crepe/Galette and dessert. It's one of those places you just stumble across when you're hungry and find out it's exactly what you were looking for. A small intimate setting, in a beautiful little street...just behind Notre Dame over the pedestrian bridge.More

After spending a long day walking around the city, we were looking for somewhere to sit for a while. Cafe Med was the perfect place to stop for a nice meal. With an intimate restaurant setting, it was easy to focus on the company and...the delicious food. We ordered the prefix menu, which was extremely well priced for the 3 courses that were included. We had the caprese salad, the mushroom risotto, and sorbet. All the ingredients were fresh and flavored with care. The mushroom risotto was one of the best meals I've ever had, particularly for someone who does not care for mushrooms. The waitstaff was attentive and kind. Overall, a wonderful experience and would recommend!More

We spent big $$ renting an apartment for a week on the Seine on Ile St. Louis so in truth I was trying to find modestly priced places for the four of us to eat with plats for 20E or less. Cafe Med fit the...bill perfectly--especially after booking our reservation through TheFork App, which offered 20-30% off the a la carte (but not the fixed price) menu. It's a small, cute place on Rue Saint-Louis en l'Île close to the west end of the island, near the bridge to Île de la Cité. Looks like they could only seat maybe 15-20 people max at half a dozen tables inside. We only saw one man running the place both nights we went, so service can be delayed a bit, but there must be someone in the back cooking because our meals came out pretty quickly after ordering. We loved our food--I had the curry chicken one night and the sauce was perfect, slightly sweet, only a mild curry flavor. Next night I had the alfredo pasta which I loved. Can't remember what the wife and our 22-yr old son and daughter ordered but they loved their food too. And the price is what really floored me--our second meal where we ordered a la carte (instead of fixed price which included an entree and a dessert) was about 66E for the four of us including a bottle of hard cider we split (we did not order appetizer or dessert) and then marked down to 44E with the TheFork discount!! Such a bargain that I left extra euros feeling guilty for having such a nice meal for so little. :-)More

We were flying out in the morning, so we looked for a place close by (and the forecast rain showed up as scheduled, also). Our hotel was about 3 doors away from the restaurant. Mission accomplished. The room is small. The staff appeared to be...one man. He greeted us, seated us, took our order, brought our order, cleared our dishes, brought our wine…. The menu was short but varied. I was surprised to find chicken curry on the menu, and I ordered it. Mild curry, good taste LOTS of rice. Da wife had mushroom risotto. Not as good as others similar dishes in Paris, Normandy or Brittany, but OK, I had vegetable soup- orange, but could not tell if carrot or squash or based on another vegetable. Good taste in general. Apple tart with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Again good but not great.More

We enjoy/ love Cafe Med and we've been going there for years as the the food is delicious and service for us has always been great. I've had date nights with the hubby and have done several parties with about 20 people and everything (food..., drinks, and service) has always been great. I love the Risotto, the Lamb, the seafood oh my! I will not keep on saying what I love cause I won't finish lol basically everything in the menu is yummy and the prices are very reasonable.More

We have been visiting this little cafe for years, under different managements and the experience is always a pleasure. A pleasant menu, very reasonably priced with decent service and it doesn't take all night to have dinner. It is a small place so its a...bit tight in the seating, but for a quick dinner at a good price, a very good betMore

We went to this restaurant the first night we were in Paris and the service and food were great. It has a great price for the menu which is picking an appetizer, main course and dessert. The server was friendly and helpful and hard working....We went a second time and we should have noted the hours, we were there at 5:30 and they didn't open until 6:45. So we went somewhere else. We went back the last night we were in Paris and the server was less friendly and the food was good but not as good as the first night for some reason. That is the reason for the 4 star rating. Had everything been as good as the first night it would have been 5 stars.More
