We had lunch at Brasserie Lipp Paris and it was again a fantastic experience. The interior of the place, their great staff and of course the excellent food was simply a wonderful experience again. This is French gastronomy as good as it gets. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is very busy. My friend went here several times and this time she came with me as well. She said that the food tasted better before. L'escargots is not the best I have had. However, foie gras is very tasty.

Only stopped by for a beer with my father. We wanted to have drink where Ben Bella supposedly disappeared many years ago. Very friendly service and cosy outside seating with sound protection from the noisy street. Sure, a little pricey with 7€ for a small glass of beer but a small platter of olives was included. We're happy we stopped... More

As others have said, I believe that at one time this place was a Parisian institution. From my experience, it is expensive without reason. Avoid.

Brasserie Lipp used to be one of my favorite spots in Paris. Eating there brought back memories of childhood and the sense of belonging in Paris. All this is gone. The food is three times more expensive than that of an average touristic brasserie in Paris, but it is no different. Average flavor, texture, variety. Classic reciped performed generically. The...

This is my absolute favourite brasserie in Paris, I am sure there a plads wi better food, and better service. But the overall ambience at brasserie Lipp satisfies all my needs. The service is efficient more than friendly, the staff is however knowledgable and have sufficient patience with foreigners for it not to be unpleasant. But the are French to... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
