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

Inventive and tasty food in a charming setting with great friendly service. They left the rum bottle on the table for my Baba Rhum dessert!

My husband & I went to this very small, quaint restaurant as an organised conference dinner (30 people). We occupied all of the front area and a great night was had by all! The staff we efficient, English spoken and the meal outstanding! I had the clams - not as good as I had hoped (unusual shaped), guinea fowl -... More

Close to Jussieu metro this classic 100 year old bistro is really nice. The food is excellent and the ambience and service are great. Has the most beautiful art-deco light fittings and is a pleasure to visit.

My husband and i had dinner on the little terrasse and took the formule 39 €, appetizers delicious, dessert/cheese as well, but the main course of lamb was averaged served with coucous... Not what we expected. Service really great and we enjoyed it overall.

We went with high hopes and overall were pleased with the food quality and satisfied if not overwhelmed by the service: despite an early reservation, we were shuttled to the last table at the back, where our view was a brick wall and window overlooking...another brick wall. Many other tables were free but apparently set aside for the better clientele.... More

My wife and I visited Le Buisson Ardent for dinner before going to Paradis Latin (which is just around the corner). From start to finish everything was excellent, the service, the wine, and the food!! On our weekend in Paris, this was by far the best meal we had. As with the rest of Paris, expect it to be quite...

On the recommendation of the proprietor of a Wine Tasting Room nearby I had a great experience here last week. I didn't have a reservation but they accommodated me on what turned out to be a very busy night for them. Everyone who I came into contact with was patient and polite to me as an obvious none French speaker.... 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.
