The art nouveau decor, lovely mosaic floor, table cloth, napkins and cutlery make this an artistic as well as gastronomic experience. We had the lunch menu which was an excellent price and our soups and tuna steaks were yummy. The ratatouille served with it was colorful and tasty.

This is the restaurant with probably one of the best art nouveau decors. Suits perfectly for a special occasion dinner. They serve good traditional French food, I thought the mi-cuit au chocolat was exquisite. I don't know why the place is rated as very expensive, the prices are normal for a Parisian restaurant with main courses not going over EUR... More

First things first: order the duck! It's amazing. This beautiful restaurant prefer that you make a reservation, but I arrived early the first time I went and got a very comfortable table where I could watch everything that happened in the restaurant. Extraordinary service and attention to detail. If they are crowded and offer to seat you next door, say... More

We went there with business friends. The menu for 33 euros was good but the burrata and tuna were amazing, I think the price is too high but you are in Paris and at least the beer was half price compared to other sites.

I come here every time I'm in Paris. It's worth coming just for the stunning Art Nouveau interiors. But the food is also delicious. I've had both steak tartare and salmon here which were great. But don't miss trying one of their soups! Last time I loved the creme d'avocat.

The food here was good and we liked the atmosphere inside. I was upset though that we were overcharged on our bill. I would like to think this was a honest mistake but this was the second night in a row this happened to us in Paris. The bill was printed on a computerized system so I have a hard... More

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.
