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

Quirky little restaurant with cosy atmosphere and great food. Salmon Caparccio was excellent, as was pork cheeks. Service was also great. Would happily return.

We were directed to this quaint restaurant by a friend who taught at the Sorbonne. She stated that it has delicious food and extremely friendly wait staff. It is all true. So much so that we ate there twice during our week in Paris. We were greeted and seated at our reservation time (2030 hrs), all 4 of us has... More

I'd refrain from defining this as a quintessential parisian restaurant. The interior is somehow oddly put together, close to pretentious is some aspects but with some cheap touches, which contribute to creating a dissonant image. For example: incredibly ornate red chalices and paper towel. A clash of cultures, almost. The service was quite lacking as well, since we only got... More

Had a wonderful, relaxed meal here. The service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable for the prix fixe dinner. Would recommend to anyone looking for a low key, neighborhood restaurant in the Latin Quartier not over run with tourists.

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.

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.
