One of my favorite restaurants in Paris. I first went here in 2011 and had to come back in 2016. The food is absolutely incredible. There are so many flavors all at once in each meal. The food is heavy so do come here when you're prepared to eat a full meal. The style inside is beautiful and elaborate. It's... More

We went to the Bouillon Racine as our host who lives in Paris was raving both about the food and the architectural and cultural history of the building. Sadly the Bouillon Racine appears to have moved with the times, and now packs people in for maximum occupancy with very ho-hum service and intensely ordinary food. The architecture and the high...

Classic french cuisine, prepared to perfection in the idyllic "art nouveau" setting. Service is inobtrusive but good & knowledgable. The food is flawless at reasonable prices. Also a good selection of wines & Champagnes

We go here on every visit to Paris (9 times so far). I love not only the upstairs magic with mirrors and art nouveau dining, but have never had a disappointing meal. I've also recommended it to friends and they've been equally swept away. I was so glad that my grand niece included it in her honeymoon stay! Be aware,... More

I walked by this restaurant many times and admired the Art Nouveau decor. Since it was lunch time and they offered a Formule Midi (a fixed price lunch menu) we decided to give it a try. We both had French onion soup to start - which was quite tasty. My husband had homemade duck confit which is one of his... More

Booked for my wedding anniversary and was not disappointed. The food was amazing (I even ate the salad, and I don't normally). The waitress made an excellent recommendation for the wine. The decor was not something I usually see in the UK, which made it even better, especially as both my wife and myself enjoy the Art Nouveau period styles.

Great place with beautiful art-nouveau décor. Food was excellent, particularly the cuisse de canard, with fair prices (dinner menu at 33 euros). Would certainly come back!

Booked a table for my boyfriend's birthday online, and had to change the time last minute. They were more than happy to move the booking which was great!! Sat at the bar while we waited for our table and enjoyed some witty repartee with the barman. Once seated, we enjoyed beautifully cooked steak and duck followed by crème brûlée and... More

Sunday night table for four. We were quickly rumbled as English and were given menus in English and made to feel very comfortable and welcome. The interior is like stepping back into the 1930s with Art Nuveau décor and amazing floor tiles and mirrors all over the place. The food was traditional French with basics such as an amazing French... More

Description
The famous Bouillon Racine is in the district of the celebrated Parisian university of the Sorbonne. This splendid brasserie was created in the art nouveau style by the Chartier brothers in 1906. The building itself is a listed building and the interior has been painstakingly renovated to its former splendour. The chef Alexandre Belthoise proposes a menu mixing modern and traditional French with specialities such as stuffed milk pig, beef stew or the creme brulee flavoured with maple syrup. The Bouillon Racine takes you on a wonderful journey through time back to the Paris of the 1900s.
