A little bit overprice

The taste of food there is good, but the price of them are a little bit unreasonable, for example a big bottle of water there is €8.50 which is not very reasonable. However, the food is really delicious, it's good to have a taste.

A group of friends and I went to La Truffiere for a set menu lunch. Service was good and the dishes were decent but I wouldn't say it was the best lunch I had had in Paris. We appreciated that the staff tried to explain the various dishes and wine pairings but they did speak quite quickly so some of... More

Located in a beautiful old house in the 5th, this place should have charm and with a Michelin star and truffles as its focus, this should be the perfect combination. The good is not that good and there is so much better in Paris whether Michelin star or not. And the prices are simply and totally ridiculous. There are many... More

We first dined here many years ago, sent by our hotel desk clerk on Rue Monge. It is a beautiful place with a lobby/bar/fireplace upstairs and the dining room downstairs. Food lovely, service impeccable, very romantic. Price was reasonable. On our recent visit to Paris we looked at the menu and the prices posted in the window and sadly decided... More

The food was good, but not as good to justify the price. We didnt leave the restaurant with the wow feeling, which is what i would expect if i have to pay 250 euros per person for a normal dinner.. The wine list contains more than 4000 wines but it was difficult to find any wine below 100 euros.. Don't... More

Actually 2 amuse bouche, 4 courses, 2 palette cleansers, a pre dessert and mignonettes!

After spending four hours on a toasty, June walking tour of the Latin Quarter, we were looking for a lunch break and from the cafe scene/cuisines; on the recommendation of our guide, we stopped by La Truffiere. To say that we were dressed a bit on the casual side would be a bit of an understatement. As soon as I... More

Last Friday we dined with a group of 12 people at La Truffiere. The restaurant had been recommended to us by a local so we were looking forward to the experience.

I discovered La Truffiere thanks to the concierge. If you compare this review to my review of L'Abeille located within Shangri La Hotel, Paris, you will note although both are 1 star restaurants, L'Abeille is far superior for the same price. My experience was similar to another Trip Adviser reviewer i.e. travelsonitsstomach. The starter was a minute canneloni which frankly... More

The concierge recommended La Truffiere! And we are so glad he did! He advised us to look at the menu on the website so we would "not be surprised." This 3+ hour dining experience was excellent from start to finish! We were greeted and taken downstairs to a cellar-like, romantic dining room. The service was flawless and the attention to... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
