My husband and I stopped at Voltaire for lunch in between visits to the Louvre and Musee Orsay, since it is in such a convenient location. We read the reviews on tripadvisor and it sounded like a good lunch option. We would definitely recommend it for lunch, and we would have gone back again if we had more time in... More

We asked our hotel concierge for a lunch recommendation near to Musee Orsay that was not a tourist trap. This was a short walk and on the street next to the Seine. I had a beer, croquet monsieur with salad and my wife had their soup. The server was helpful in translating the menu to English. We really enjoyed the... More

We wanted an early lunch at a nice riverside spot while we were exploring the first arrondissement. There are several cafes along the Seine. All of them pretty nice, really. We came a little early, so only simple sandwiches were on the menu. Mine was saucisson. The baguette was fresh, the sausage good. A sip of espresso, and we were... More

We walked past this on our way to the Louvre, it looked a bit touristy outside but we were pleasantly surprised to be served a delicious home made veg soup and a super mixed cheese and meats platter accompanied by excellent wines, served by kind and friendly staff

We went to the restaurant for lunch, there is an adjoining cafe and should have gone there. The food is very good, the service is v good too, but the prices are extortionate for lunch. It is a lovely old classic wood panelled room, used to be popular, ownership has changed, it is no longer as popular, there were two... More

My husband and I had dinner with his coworkers here on our last night in Paris. After reading a lot of the reviews here I was a little worried it would be disappointing. But it was like taking a step back in time in the best possible way. As soon as we walked in, a team of formally dressed waiters... More

Wonderful food and service but expect to pay the price. The steak was cooked to perfection . The bream was perfect and the accompaniment was excellent.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
