This tiny bistro on rue Guisarde was a fabulous find. It was one of our favorite dinners while in Paris. We found this area last year on a visit and have eaten at three different places and loved each one. The atmosphere at Le Machon is lively and welcoming. We shared the warm camembert which was a melted wheel of... More

Initially went to sister restaurant but it was full and we took advice to try Le Machon d'Henri. From the minute we walked in the door the service was warm, funny and faultless. The food superb. The fresh goats milk cheese with tapenade and pesto was delicious. The marrow bone with toasts was classic and the duck breast sublime. A... More

Fabulous little place in Saint-Germain for dinner. Pork, ravioli and veal dishes were all superb. Nothing wrong with the house wine either. If you want an authentic french bistro meal definitely try this place. The owner finished off our meal with a complimentary taste of a superb 28 year old liquer. Very reasonably priced meal in this area.

See above - no redeeming features. Recommend always speaking to the owner to demand a refund. Apparently he's "very busy" in his other restaurants but will oblige to come and shout at you and your opinion. I'm annoyed to give one star. Their house wine is poor for Paris standard.

This is certainly a good place to enjoy typical french cuisine. The plates are well presented and the food is very tasty. I had the lamb with spices and prunes cooked slowly over hours and my wife claims to have had the best homemade tortellini ever. The wine list is very limited. Again this is a tiny place that fills... More

Boys had beef bourguignon; a classic well done and served well. But the duck stole the show, for us best duck ever, the orange glazed duck breast was tender, cooked to perfection and had the consistency of tender filet. I had the veal liver, which was, again, cooked to perfection. More on duck, we had been fans of duck breast... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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.
