We had dinner here on a Saturday night, it was very busy, but we still received great service and lovely food. The prices are reasonable, both our main courses were 17 euros each. The sauvignon wine was also very good at 5 euros a glass. I would definitely dine here again if the opportunity arose.

A nice brasserie serving traditional french food (ie mainly some kind of meat coked with veg and potatoes). The food was nice and the service was friendly and efficient. I had a very good crême brulée for pudding!

We ate at Le Pré aux Clercs brasserie for 3 of our 6 nights in Paris after stumbling on it after a walk in the rain and loved it immediately. The service was good but the food was great especially the duck. The Le Pre aux Clercs is a restaurant for the locals and tourists who like to get off... More

We passed this restaurant on way to metro several times & it always looked busy so we stopped in for dinner on our last night in Paris. Relaxing atmosphere, attentive service & excellent food. My daughter had the French onion soup & I had the roast chicken with walnut sauce with the most divine mashed potatoes ever. Delicious!

We ate here a couple of times while in Paris. Our first visit would have been rated a 5. They service was excellent and the food was very good. We decided to return another day and it was a much different visit. The waiter spilled red wine on me while walking by. He apologized profusely but then we didn't see... More

This is the sort of place I dream of having at the end of my street. My husband wandered to Le Pre aux Clercs for his daily coffee at le comptoir. We had about 3 dinners there while we were in Paris and each time the service was friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. Without a doubt, my... More

Dropped in during a downpour, 7 pm on a Saturday, and was seated immediately, between two of us ate delicious onion soup, steak, salad with thin sliced ham, bleu cheese and potatoes, excellent wine, good service. It's probably not done but we asked to take the rest of our food because we couldn't finish and our waiter furnished us with... More

After getting a recommendation to come to this bistro from a tour guide (from Fat Tire Tours-Toni) as his favorite place to just relax and have great food away from the tourists, we had to try it. Just as he said, it is a very friendly bistro where they are just as happy to see you if you are only... More

It was 10:30 P.M. on a Wednesday, and my husband and I were tired and hungry. We did not feel like wandering around too long looking for a good place to grab late night food. We were so glad this place was literally across the street from our hotel and they stay open late. All the servers were very friendly... More

We have breakfast here almost every day during our three-week stay in Paris this year. The staff get to know regulars very quickly, and we sit down at one of the outside tables, and they check to make sure we are having our "normal" and bring it. It is separated from the street by a row of potted shrubs and... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is 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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
