Draughty table next to the window. Service was OK - pleasant but slow. Sauté de veau was pretty tasteless; my wife had the veal steak, which was better but not extraordinary. The menu choice is very limited. I wouldn't go back, and I'd say you...can find much better places to eat on the Rue des Ecoles, within 2 or 3 minutes walk.More

My Paris birthday dinner was here and it was a very solid pick. I want to be close to our Latin Quarter Hotel but not go to one of the many tourist places in the area. Café de la Nouvelle Mairie was the right choice....Luckily we made a reservation as the place was packed with locals when we arrived. Be aware that the menu changes daily with about 3 main choices available each night. The food was excellent (pate a great starter) and the atmosphere, Parisian.More

Popped in here for an evening bite to eat on a wet Friday evening, lots of locals but not too busy. From the reviews in trip advisor and guide book we were expecting hot food would be available but all dishes were served cold. This...is more of a small plates tapas type venue. Although the food was tasty and service okay it was quite expensive. If you want to eat where the Parisian's eat then give it a try.More

Stopped on the way to the Pantheon for le déjeuner at the recommendation of Le Fooding. Service was very friendly, food and wine were very nice. Eggs with mustard, endive salad. Quiche was fantastic. Excellent if pricey Gamay. Was going to leave a tip for...the nice service but noted 2x boisson chaud on the bill. At 4 euros each. Didn’t feel like arguing on a 100 euro tab. Buyer beware.More

On a business trip in Paris visiting one of the nearby research institutes. Went to Le Cafe de la Nouvelle Mairie for light dinner having already had a sizable lunch with colleagues. The place is popular with the locals and was recommended by my wife...who noticed it on Trip Advisor. Ordered soup as starter, sausage for main and a beer to drink. Got billed for two soups and two beers. At 39 euros the bill did look a bit excessive, so I noticed the 2 soups that they apologized for. Missed the doubled beer. They stinged me for 4 euros for the extra beer. Good for them!More

We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the dining room, a veritable French Cafe. There was a lot of hustle and bustle because it was very busy, but quite frankly, it was like that because there were not enough servers given the number of...tables. While the servers were very good, the service wasn't very good. You had to work hard to get their attention to get water, missing utensils, ask questions etc. The food was very good. We ordered 2 appetizers to share, namely, the oeufs durs (hard-boiled eggs draped in mayonnaise) and a burrata (a soft Buffalo mozarella-like cheese), both delicious and tasty. I loved the 'plat' I ordered - the cabillaud (cod) served with fresh spinach and a savoury tapanade. The cod was fresh, chunky and substantive, the tapanade providing it further zest and flavor. The crumble aux pommes (apple crumble) was good as the apples were fresh, but the crumble on top was or seemed to be just a slab of brown sugar with sprinkles of oats. I did not enjoy that as much. All in all however, still a good meal.More

We stopped in for lunch last week and were pleasantly surprised by both the quality of food and the professional and friendly service. As to food, three of us had a goat cheese quiche, which was impossibly light and delicious! It was served with a...salad that was the perfect accompaniment. We were torn on which wine to order and the server offered us tastes of two different options. We ordered one, and then ended up getting another and another of the delightful wine. The waiter was extremely helpful, we felt welcomed and not rushed and it was a memorable afternoon.More

Our first night in Paris and we went to this cosy little bistro by the Pantheon recommended by the Lonely Planet. Everything was wonderful! The waiter took the time to explain/translate the menu for us, and you can get wine by the glass, carafe, or...bottle. We got the peppers, buffalo mozzarella, terrine, and both cheese plates. It gets crowded fast, so if you don’t have a booking, arrive a little before 8pm which is when the kitchen opens. It was one of my favourite Parisian bistros. Thank you!More

Great local place. Nice atmosphere and great coffee. The place is relatively full even for breakfast.

We are visiting Paris and staying in the 5th arrondissement. On a weekday lunchtime this place was packed with locals, some outside enjoying the 10C sunny weather. I had an excellent veal ragout with lots of vegetables and fabulous spring mushrooms in a light sauce....My wife had cod poached in a light cream sauce. The dining environment was packed and busy. Our lunch for two with one coffee was 37 Euros, a very fair price. We'd be happy to enjoy another meal here.More

I was unable to reserve online, so I asked the staff at our hotel to make the reservation. Their phone number is listed on the FB page, so another option.
