The title of the review in on the business card and to me says that this is a delightful French restaurant with exceedingly good food. The sauces on our dinners were excellent. The soup which was served in a tiny cup and which we were not expecting was nothing short of fantastic. Just a test of what our dinner would... More

We wanted to have lunch with a few of our colleagues from our Paris office in Jussieu and one of the staff suggested Le Buisson Ardent. I was quite impressed with the decor when I stepped in through the heavy curtains by the door. The soothing green paneling with earth-tone murals were contrasted by the rich reds of the dining...

Great small bistrot-type restaurant in St. Germain. Fantastic starters - Vitello Tomato and Terrin. Very decent steak. Good selection of wines. The host speaks English and Russian (apart from French). Will definitely return.

The best beef meal I have every had, bar none. Small, quiet, unassuming place. Highly, highly recommended.

The main dishes are really high end and a big surprise after reading the menu, which makes you think this is new cuisine, but in fact it's rather traditional. We were not happy about the deserts. Luckily they offer a nice deal when ordering 2 courses -30%

Would I recommend: No, but it's ok if you go. Tables were way way to close where we were seated, There were 5 tables alon the wall, and at most there should have been 3 or 4 for a nice ambience, Food is very nice, and we especially enjoyed being able to taste wine before selecting a bottle. We booked... More

We had dinner at the Buisson Ardent because the owners of the apartment we're staying in recommended it. So very happy we took their advice! My ceviche of very fresh and light cabillaud with rice cream and a contrasting salad of red cabbage, sultanas, nori, and something else, lovely ponzu dressing, was just excellent, as was the grilled dorade with...

Love the food here, it is always well priced and tasty. The staff are very nice. The restaurant itself is very comfortable. We have eaten her twice and hopefully we will return to Paris and eat here once more.

We were looking for a an authentic French dinner experience that was mid-range and at a not too fancy place (we're with our two teens) and found this bistro on TA. It was perfect! Interesting decor, friendly waiter who spoke English, and beautifully presented delicious meals. We all opted for the 3 courses menu and everyone was happy with their... More

We found this place through The Fork and were able to get a table last minute. They have two separate rooms and initially tried to put us at the one random table in the hallway but we moved to the front room. They have a daily menu with all the the freshest in season ingredients. The food was very good,... 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.
