We loved eating here. The bistro is on a little street off rue Four. We ate outside both times. The manager speaks excellent English and a sense of humor to match. His wine recommendation was perfect. This restaurant is owned by the couple who owns Le Bistro d'Henri and is just as good with way better outdoor seating. I'm so... More

This was recommended to us and it was well worth the visit. It is a very small restaurant, somewhat crowded, but the food was excellent! Two of us had the Boeuf Bourginone and it was the best we had anywhere in France. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years now, usually at least twice per visit. The staff recognizes us from year to year which is always welcoming, and it is populated mostly by locals. The food is always excellent, the wine selection terrific, and the service charming.

I had fish superbly done and my wife had veal liver. We will try next time bone marrow that looked very appetizing on the plate of the gentleman at the table next to... More

After reading the many wonderful reviews, we made a reservation for dinner. While we were the only customers innitally at seven pm., the small room began to fill up quickly. I was seated towards the small opening into the kitchen and was horribly shocked to see the food being assembled from prepared products. Not only was the food not being... More

At the recommendation of a colleague, this was an excellent choice. The rib steak was very good with the rich red wine gravy.

Spur of the moment dinner alone. Very small authentic French restaurant. Family owned and operated. It appeared there were only 3 people working there. My server, an elderly man who was peeling potatoes behind the counter and the chef/cook. I wanted to order the chicken but they were out of it, I had the salmon. I don't think I could've... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
