Visited here twice. Food is very tastey. Restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and there's outside seating too. It's in a busy, buzzing area full of bars and restaurants. Highly recommend the profiteroles.

If you are lucky enough to have dined here, it will always stay with you. This is the quintessential traditional Parisian restaurant, the atmosphere as charming as the host and the poems of Verlaine printed on the menu. The food is simple but delicious and...More

Went there on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. The waiter was very helpful and the food was amazing. The duck , fais gras, seafood and dessert was excellent. Took a stroll down the street to the plaza to enjoy the music.

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
