The restaurant was chosen as a typical French but we have to wait for almost one hour for eating. The food was excellent but it is needed a better service

Where to start? Fabulous atmosphere, great wine.... As a dog lover, I find it very charming to see a cute little dog inside the restaurant, sitting and watching the coats without bothering no one. Go and eat in that restaurant! And if you hear Michael Jackson in the background, relax, it will disappear.

I visited with my boyfriend 2 years ago and had to come back again when we were showing his mom around Paris. The service is attentive and decoration quirky and ambience equally suitable for a romantic as well as family night. My favorite item on the menu is the pork cheek. Extremely tender and you just have to try it!... More

We arrived at 9:30 and were served at 22:45 They arrogantly argued with us when we complained about it instead of apologizing. Staff with bad attitude. I would never recommend it.

I strongly do not recommend anyone to go to this restaurant. Arrogance and pride of their staff does not compensate the quality of the food and I will explain you the reasons. We were 10 people to dinner at this restaurant motivated by comments from tripadvisor. Our experience could not be worse. Part of our group asked for starter +... More

This was our favorite restaurant in the Latin Quarter. The menu allows you to choose a starter or dessert with an entree for a reasonable price, and they had a vegetarian entree which was beautifully prepared and very good. The decor is like that of an elegant old hotel with lots of artful touches. The walls are painted in warm... More

It took us several attempts to find the restaurant but everyone was very pleasant and we eventually got there. I wish I could say the same about the restaurant. The food was very ordinary, service was just okay but when they didn't know the names of the cheese on the cheese plate, we knew something was the matter. Better off... More

When a restaurant is open only in the evening, it must strive for high-quality food, and LPPP succeeds to significant extent. The only negative: Our salad was overloaded with dressing -- but otherwise it was a superb meal. Wonderful foie gras and a succulent Arctic char from Sweden were topped off with an outstanding and affordable Bordeaux (at 14% alcohol... More

I cannot stress what an awful experience I had in this place. I will not use the word restaurant to describe what is nothing more than a tourist trap. I had to pay for tap water. No house wine. I was very angry about the way I was treated by the staff and the fact the the food was completely... 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.
