This legacy spot was dinner our first night in Paris. The setting is very old school, subdued, with experienced wait staff. If you are looking for contemporary French cooking in a chic, upbeat atmosphere, this is not the place for you. If you want escargots...More

This place is worth a visit for typical French dishes. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service is pleasant and the food is enjoyable.

Not a hugely pricey place, and a little out of the way as well. Friendly staff, and they do a killer steak as well. Great views.

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

squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
