People are not gentle in this place, to be mild. In fact, they have been talking in French among themselves insulting us (degueulasse) just because we dared asking twice for some more bread. The little island is fantastic, but there are better places for getting...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,

Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

Le nom de ce restaurant rend hommage a l'ilot aux Vaches - appellation qui designait autrefois l'ile Saint-Louis.Au coeur du berceau de la capitale, laissez-vous seduire par son accueil chaleureux et sa decoration originale.Sa cuisine traditionnelle et savoureuse ravira les palais les plus exigeants. Goutez donc un filet de boeuf Rossini ou un carre d'agneau aux senteurs de Provence !
