It is still ok but it became really touristic place, food is good with quality product but not always amazing . We had escargot which really not good, the famous terrine of mere Brazier is still good but coming with half pickle when in the past they were providing the pot ... I had roasted chicken that was good, but... More

We were looking for a cool place to have diner and liked the look of this cosy restaurant. The brasserie type food was well prepared and tasty. A good place for a lunch of better for diner. Prices were reasonable.

Rude, unwelcoming, condescending. There is really no reason to go to this place considering the excellent bars and restaurants in this part of town. I don't see this restaurant lasting for very long if they don't change their attitude quickly. Learn how to treat your customers with respect.

I was expecting more when I visited the Grille St-Germain. Their menu looks good but the execution not so much. The specialty of the week was an old fashioned stew - which was correct. Their Os a Moelle was copious and delicious even though it was not served with coarse salt as it should have been. They are very particular... More

They advertise them selfs as restaurant serving traditional french cuisine. It was quite busy at a time of our visit during lunch time and we were probably the only tourists. Food we ordered was from menu recommended for a given month and it was pretty decent. All in all, good dining option around Boulevard Saint Germain (but not the cheapest).

Three of us enjoyed a late lunch sitting in the sun at this brasserie near St. Sulpice. Two chose the seafood beignet on special with salad, inexpensive and very tasty. The other, the fresh salad of salmon, avocado, greens. Waiter was so attentive we left a tip. Recommended.

Absolutely horrendous. I didn't know before eating here that it was possible to make a salad this bad... We wouldn't recommend to anyone.

We got here because it was close to our hotel and they have a menu in English. Big mistake. The Chicken Club Sandwich was ok, but the Filet De Perche was so overfried and dry that after the second bite I decided to send it back. The smiling waitress said "No good? I'm sorry". But we got billed for it... More

We managed to stumble across this restaurant after two nights of 'touristy' restaurants on the main streets and we were amazed. I was desperate for proper french food and that is exactly what we had. The escargot, rillettes & steak tartare were to die for and the manager was amazing. I would recomment this restaurant over and above any other... 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.
