Table for four for supper. We arrived at 7:00pm because we did not have a reservation. We were quickly seated inside. The restaurant is small with a small kitchen with excellent chefs. The chicken terrine as superb. Followed with sausage from Lyon and potatoes. The staff speak English and are very attentive and courteous. Desserts: try the Creme Brûlée. Prices... More

Ate here last year and was very happy to return. Same family team running the restaurant and still superb bistro environment and food. Only a small restaurant but seemed to accommodate everyone but I would certainly book when I return. One of my must eat places in Paris

My father thought he had visited this restaurant some years ago and thought it was rather specially then. He suggested we tried it on our recent visit to Paris. It is a very tiny well run place. The food was well presented and delicious. There were a lot of Americans there - clearly following the recommendations of their fellow travellers.... More

French fare, that caters to mostly French locals. We had a reservation problem (our fault); but, our group of five was still seated in a busy restaurant. Service was excellent and friendly. Food was very good; and solidly "French". The hit at our table was the house specialty - boeuf bourguignon. The sauce is incredibly rich, deep and flavorful. Definitely... More

Intimate local restaurant. Would be a hit in Miami. Phenomenal food. Large portions. Chateaubriand to due for! Great service by what appears to be a husband and wife duo. If I lived in Paris, this would be one of my regular spots

Ate here this evening and had a most enjoyable meal. This is a tiny (24 covers) restaurant and tables are pretty closely spaced but the welcome is warm and the food well cooked, nicely presented and good value. We variously had rocket and walnut salad with Parmesan, grilled red peppers and endive and Roquefort salad as starters followed by fillets... More

We dined at Le Bistrot d'Henri on our last night in Paris, and it was delicious. It is a tiny space, so reservations are a must. Everything that we ordered was top notch, and the portions were generous. My husband and I ordered the bone marrow for the starter, which was so good! I was surprised at the portion size... More

I really enjoyed the boef bourguignon special the evening we were there. My companion loved the gratinee. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. The tables are very close together and you'll end up making some new (mostly American) friends. It was nice to walk through St. Germain prior to dinner!

This is a fantastic little restaurant full of French Charm. The menu is rustic French with some standard French dishes which just taste superb! We had the Hot Goats Cheese & Escargot to start. Followed by Beef Burgoinon & Fresh Scallops with Sea Bass in a Garlic Sauce. We ordered the House Red Wine. Everything was just elxcellent. Not to... More

It's a small restaurant with 2 chefs and 3 people doing the service. But they serve amazing food. The escargots and the scallops with para were both divine. Loved the quaint atmosphere and the food.

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.
