Had their wonderful, farm-fresh prix-fixe 5-course dinner (65€) of a few amuse bouche, amazing seared scallops, fab venison,the most amazing cheese course with very nice reasonably-priced wines. Will definitely eat there again. If going, make reservation for when they open (19:30) or there will be a long wait before your seated.

Deserves making a reservation ahead to visit. Excellent preparation, service and selection. Many Parisians make reservations six months in advance, I know why. You should too!

Many reviews claim there is a no reservations policy here. Correction: this applies only at weekends. For Mondays to Fridays, you must reserve months ahead and call to confirm the day before, which we did. Midweek the cost is 60€ for 5 courses, with little choice (and the few choices have a hefty supplement). We arrived at 8.30pm on a... More

Chef is such a gorgeous businessman charming the crowd as he busily marched in and out of the restaurant all day. I asked for a selfie and he was gracious. Others did too. I have been going there for over 10 years and the menu remains the same but the portions are smaller. Long time ago I was told his... More

I got the beef soup and it was loaded with fat. It grossed me out. The bread and butter were delicious!

Enjoyed this lovely bistro on a brisk fall day - note, there are no reservations so arrive promptly at opening or expect a bit of a wait. Of note - the wine list is outstanding! Pages and pages of delicious French wine - oh, the choices. Also, the cheese and charcuterie is pretty fantastic - we enjoyed a goat cheese,... More

The food was of clean bistro quality, with middle of the road dishes, few surprises good or bad. We ordered a Languedoc red. They brought a much younger year, with the usual excuses. We changed wines. They brought the new wine, already opened and without the metallic scarf around the neck. Their reason? "Monsieur, it is a very small bistro,... More

Because of this delicious spot, my wife is eager to visit Paris every September since 2012. Recently English speaking staff helps our wine selection.

The menu is in French only and they do not take reservations so plan your visit or plan to wait in line for a table. I found the wait staff very happy to help English speakers with the menu in spite of some negative reviews that I have read. My escargot and Daube de Boef (French beef stew) were both... More

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
