Walking after dinner one night we decided to stop here for a nightcap. We enjoyed cocktails and then had ice cream and coffee. Our waiter was good. Our cocktails were excellent. We never made it back to eat. Good out door cafe.

So last night, a Sunday, we ended up wandering the streets trying to find a place with salads that didn’t stink from cigarette smoke. Sad...we enjoyed Paris put you can get caught with no places open, like Museums on Monday, and many cafes on Sunday....More

Walking through the streets of Paris, we came across this little cafe/restaurant. While the prices are quite high, the food is good. I chose the steak and was not disappointed (although the potatoes were a little dry). A nice place for dinner.

Chose this over Deux Magots, 100 metres away from this one. Food was ok; service was great. All in all a worthy alternative to Deux Magots

Extremely limited breakfast menu with NO substitutions, e.g., eggs only fried and accompanied by a pancake!

Met friends for dinner. Classic French bistro. Very good atmosphere on a beautiful Sunday evening in Paris. I had steak. Very good. My wife had goats cheese salad and said it was excellent. We also had the house red and it was fabulous. Would recommend

Perfect end to our perfect day! Service was terrific and very friendly. We share the gnocchi and the St Germain salad. Both were delicious. It was great being able to sit and watch Paris life unfold before us from our table too. Great location!

Slightly away from the St.-Germain church, so a little more quiet, and slightly less expensive. We really liked it. Went twice. Once for drinks and sat outside. Once for an impromptu early dinner and sat inside, but the glass walls were open, so almost as...More

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
