My partner and I attended for the Valentine's Day set menu dinner. The interior of this place is amazing; I loved the rustic feel that the place has. However, the set menu was not particularly suitable for someone who's allergic to shellfish and intolerant to beef (obviously, this is not the restaurant's fault), so a few more options would have...

This restaurant seems to be always very well patronised, and deservedly so. Very atmospheric..decor, style, upmarket but retro. Good service and meals with an extensive wine list..all at a price. We will come back with our friends and family so they can experience the whole scene.

Was here with a large group and so the fixed menu it was. To be fair this is a beautiful, typical Parisian restaurant. Love the interior details. The service was not as attentive as we wanted. It took a little while to get their attention when needed. But let's talk about the food. Kick off with soup - forgotten vegetables.... More

We ate an excellent French dinner . The only thing that was terrible was the Savarine (desert). The fish, the risotto, other deserts were excellent. The place is very beautiful and pleasant with Art Deco ambiance.

Centrally located, the Bouillon Racine is a real find - the food is excellent and the decor very traditional French "high style". We had artichoke soup with truffle oil, brandade of haddock with lemon hollandaise, and iles flottantes . A very memorable meal.

My husband and I lunched here today with my brother-in-law and his wife. We sat upstairs in glorious art nouveau surroundings reflected in a multitude of mirrors sumptuously framed with sinuous eau de nil woodwork and bouquets of stylised flowers. The food was excellent and graciously served. After leaving the restaurant it suddenly occurred to us that we had actually... More

We walked in off the street not knowing anything about the place. The decor is wonderful - really decorative. The food is even better and we were very pleasantly surprised. I had two starters and that was plenty for me. And superb service.

We booked this restaurant for our friends 60th birthday and although the surroundings are impressive the service and food was very lack lustre. I had asked for a candle to be added to our friends dessert and they forgot. No fuss or acknowledgement was made to the special event. I felt we were treated like tourists who were unlikely to...

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.
