I've eaten here at least 6 times over the last several years - and many other places in Paris. For sheer enjoyment of a dining experience it is tops on my list. I have always found the food excellent, the atmosphere comfortable and pleasant and the service very good. We have taken friends here, and recommended it to others who... More

Excellent food in a very nice and lovely atmosphere. But the service was very slow we were waiting an hour between courses. We, eleven people, had book a table at 19:30 pm and we had the deserts at 22:40 pm. I think they had to few staff on duty that evening.

I have been a customer of Le Petit Prince for over 21 years and recently visited the restaurant again, for a much looked forward to dinner, after a hiatus of some years. The first thing I noticed, is that the restaurant is now very popular and the window is festooned with stickers attesting to its acclaim. Therefore, it is absolutely... More

We love Le Petit Prince having started going there in the 90s and we were delighted to see that the décor still retained its original features on a recent return trip. It did seem though that they had crammed in more tables and the place felt crowded and over busy. As a result service was rushed (I think they only... More

I would recommend this place for the Table d`hôte which is reasonably priced and tasty. I had Scottish salmon and a lovely steak

Firstly, we had a very good waiter being very attentive all night long. Both starters, main courses and dinner were well prepared and decorated. I visited the restaurant with my family. We had a variation of dishes and everybody was very pleased with the food. The complementary wines were well chosen, too. The food was reasonably priced (despite the fact... More

As I noted in an earlier review, Le Petit Prince was where my wife and I had our first dinner date many years ago, and we always make sure to have a dinner there when we are back in Paris. We were just there after nearly a year's absence, and we not one bit disappointed. It is as good as... More

The restaurant itself is huge, which doesn't show by looking from the door. I chose the set menu while my friend decided to go on separate plates. There were few items on that menu, but they all seemed to be delicious. The onion soup was actually great, with the perfect amount of melted cheese, but beware it's hot! On the... More

We were recommended by our hotel here because the restaurant's we had chosen for dinner were closed. It is clearly French, a tad quirky in the decor and frankly a tad amateur. It's the sort of place that some nationals love because it feels really French. It's set in a time warp. That being said, the food is not bad... 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.
