The food is really amazing and lets you savour every plate even more. The quality is at its highest and the portions are very generous. Make sure to order the dessert at the beginning (mille-feuille). Enjoy!

I'd read very good reviews including positive comments from a food author, so my husband and I booked while on Paris. Firstly, they attempted to seat us near the kitchen but of course...no, we asked to be seated at the front. They seated us at...More

We were sent to Dumonet as per the concierge at our hotel. He highly recommended it. And he also told us to be sure we told them we came from LaBelle Juliette, our hotel. This always makes me feel there is a kick back involved....More

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

Everyone speaks English at any nice restaurant. I believe for both my wife and me it was about $100 total. Totally worth it. I would not go back without eating there.

To the best of my knowledge, you cannot reserve at Josephine Chez Dumonet online (and definitely not on the Paris Forum), you will need to telephone to make a reservation.
