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

Not sure were the last reviewer went but this restaurant is inexpensive with table d'hote at 18 or 24 Euro for many courses. Bread is best I have tasted and we went two nights and both nights the food was very very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful and did not try to oversell anything. The food was... More

Terrible wine, terrible appetizer, terrible entree. Plus Terrible attitude AND charged me for water-no option for tap. They were actually playing the Macarena. It was a trifecta of terrible. Always look at the menu outside. It was clear once I took a look at it. Even the salad was inedible. Seriously? balsamic dressing?! This is FRANCE after all. So, fine,... More

Tucked away in a discreet lane off the main streets in the Latin Quarter. Took a bit the find it but thanks to offline maps it wasn't missed. We walked from the Grand Du Lourve an almost 2km stroll. The sights were great as the sun was setting and temperatures coming down from the blistering heat of summer. Restaurant is... More

Back again 12 months later. I just happened to for a walk from my hotel to stumble across this fabulous eatery again. Déjà vu. We had eaten here before and didn't write down the details. How fortunate to go for a walk. Truly delicious food whether it's the Formule you choose or al Le carte. Don't miss this Parisienne gem.

My wife and I celebrated our thirtieth wedding anniversary here, and were treated to a superb meal. The service was good (except for a forgotten order for a side salad) and the atmosphere was very pleasant.

A gem of a place that I had been made aware by a friend. No plan to go there but when I'd done extensive walkin in the Panthéon, Sorbonne, Grand Mosque of Paris, and stumbling upon a Roman amphitheater I found myself realizing I was near this place. GPS on phone led my walk. Famished I entered a small, cozy,... 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.
