We had a 3 course dinner here. Everything was FABULOUS!!!!! Salmon and arugula starter....sooooo fantastic. Beef and gratin-type potatoes for our entree. Wait staff was patient and attentive. My daughter (age 11) ate everything. One of our best meals in Paris! Charming location too.

Fabulous food, traditional atmosphere, a bit of a quirky place, not cheap but so much better than what you would get at a tourist trap in say the latin quarter for the same cost.

This place was delicious! The price is amazing for such great food. It was very busy, so have patience. Remember in Paris they enjoy their food and conversation, so don't expect a fast meal and just enjoy the ambiance. We had amazing lamb and pork cheeks for our entrees and both were outstanding. I would defiantly go back.

Last night we enjoyed Pork Cheeks and Beef Medallions after a starter of goat cheese stuffed peppers. All amazingly presented and very delicious. Wine by the glass options were sufficient, as we were tired and didn't want a whole bottle. Service was excellent and the decor inviting in reds and dark woods with plenty of candles. The front entrance is... More

We arrived later in the evening, without a reservation, and were seated as soon as a table became available. Our waiter helped us pick a very good white wine from the Loire Valley, which went well with our meal. Both the scallops and the sea bass were excellent, but the tiramisu was even better. Our hostess and our waiter were... More

We didn't book, just walked in and ordered from the set menu (two courses for €24). We had two main courses (minute steak with roquefort sauce and duck with grapefruit & potatoes dauphinoise) and two desserts (three mousses and apple tart). Steak was excellent (roquefort sauce was heavenly), duck was a bit dry, but potatoes dauphinoise were delicious. Apple tart... More

My son & I came in late into Paris after a long day. It was raining, and Sunday to boot. Our receptionist at our hotel at the Latin Quarter suggested Le Petit Prince at 9.30 pm - and they gave us a table!

The place has history and you can see that when you walk in. The food was great! The plates are huge! I had a starter (panacotta with roquefort), a meal (fish with spinach), desert (apple pie with ice cream). Good price for the quality and size of the plates! Highly recommend it !

The staff were welcoming, friendly, and organised They needed to be because the restaurant was very busy, but excellent food and drinks were served quickly. Other customers were relaxed and obviously enjoying everything, not least the excellent decor and good atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Strongly recommended

For me what makes a great restaurant experience is 4 things: food, ambiance, company, and service. The food was very good, although the minute steak was somewhat grisly. The duck plate and apple tart were very good. We could have done without the Top 40 playlist running; classical or jazz would be more suited to conversation. The service was only... 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.
