About
A typical Parisian brasserie time of old, emblem of the French restoration, our brewery is one of the greatest culinary and social institutions of the capital (ranked 33th best Parisian brasserie in 2014 Cityvox / Yelp): this is more than sixty years that we press to settle on our seats, more than just a restaurant, it is a place of life where we have lunch or dinner while experiencing life in Paris .With a beautiful terrace that Cardinal Lemoine Street and the corner of the Boulevard Saint-Germain, sunny all day, perfect for a short break during shopping! We offer typical dishes of the gastronomy and French brasserie. A few steps from the Pantheon and the Ile Saint-Louis, Cardinal Saint-Germain
