We had the most lovely meal at Le Timbre. Tiny little place, and limited menu, but amazing service, and you can watch the chef preparing your meal. Beautiful presentation and food that tasted even better than it looked. Will definitely be back.

I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant. My husband and I and sister and brother-in-law ate here. It is run by a husband and wife team---no other staff. There is only one menu each evening, which you can have more or less of. There are two seatings. I did not love all the food, but it was fresh and... More

This is a one of those hidden gems. Called the stamp for a reason has only about 20 seats and lucky are the ones that are seated. One dish after another continues to amaze. Charles is a one man show and genius to watch in action

I don't know where to start. This was such a unique experience and I'm so glad that we were able to spend our one dinner in Paris here. We aren't the most adventurous eaters, but I was excited to try things a bit out of my comfort zone here. The options are limited, so we were a little nervous going... More

We ate at Le Timbre on our last night in Paris and it was the best meal I ate. Very tiny restaurant, very limited menu, only a few choices. The starter was a white tuna tartare on a pool of tomato water and a dollop of soft cheese on top, the flavors were subtle but amazing. Main course was veal,... More

Tiny little place (as a stample - timbre), with only a few tables. The menu is tiny as well, only 2 appetizers / main / desserts, changing often, which guarantees well-executed fresh food. The quality is excellent, and nice wine list. Very friendly service.

Very small venue seats approximately 24.Our server,the only one,handled the room professionally and efficiently. We had a white tuna tatare that was devine and hake fish that may have been even better.My wife prefers not to eat red meat and they readily accommodated our request.Can not recommend highly enough!!!

Again, we were able to eat here, due to our hotel getting an early evening (7:30PM) reservation. A small restaurant, where a lot of care and thought is put into the preparation of each and every dish. Friendly staff, helpful for those of us who were not proficient in French.

Le Timbre is tiny and has a very small menu with limited choice but the food is lovingly and carefully prepared. The staff is very friendly. The preparation is modern French.

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
