My wife and I have visited this restaurant at least 4 years in a row. The first times quality was superior compared to price but the last two times quality has been rapidly declining, and the restaurant is not at all up to previous standards. To bad, as the atmosphere is good and service excellent. This time was our last... More

Below the hill leading up to le Jardin des Plantes, by the Curie University, isn't much to look at. But this unprepossessing little bistro is a diamond in the rough. The two gentlemen who handled the other diners and myself on a damp Monday evening in November could not have been more cordial or efficient. And the plates they served--excellent... More

Fun menu with creative choices. Expect to enjoy a great meal prepared by a great kitchen. Prix fix was creative and exciting. Not disappointing. Prices were very reasonable for this quality of cuisine in Paris. Service was friendly and the dining room was not crowded. Reservations recommended. Review the menu beforehand if you are particular about food.

Excellent, reasonably priced gastronomic level small restaurant with friendly, unpretentious service. Good wine selection too. Nothing lavish...its about the food, period.

We arrived in Paris after a very long journey from Vancouver Canada and this was our first meal. Our Airbnb host recommended it. Everything was delicious. Our three year old daughter was exhausted so we ended up packing our entrees for lunch the next day. We had foie gras and a cheese plate. Then pork tenderloin and beef stew for... More

When working at Jussieu, I would frequently have lunches in this very traditional restaurant, mostly connected with jurys. I went back last year and found the place unchanged with the same high levels of quality and traditional service. This is more bourgeois cuisine than haute cuisine or nouvelle cuisine, but there is definitely nothing wrong with that sticking to culinary... More

Arrived in Paris having travelled by Eurostar and caught the metro to Jussieu. After unpacking in our apartment had a walk around for a couple of hours and when we returned set about finding a restaurant for our evening meal. Amazingly,TripAdvisor reviews indicated that we had a top 200 restaurant right next door! A quick nip outside to have a... More

This restaurant was the hilight of our trip! Oksana, the owner's wife made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped foot in the door. We did not have reservations and she made sure we got a table in spite of that. The meal was amazing and we chose to do the 4 course pre fixe menu. It was beyond... 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.
