26€ for three expressos and two bottles of water? Was a barriqued one? It cames from Alaska? The coffee was probably original tibetan. Thanks to Dalai Lama.

Great place to stop with friends to catch up while enjoying typical Parisian brasserie type food. Nicely decorated and warm reinforce its cosyness to discuss either family/friendship issues or work related issues. The staff is discrete and very nice. The food is just great and very well prepared. We shared some charcuterie, I enjoyed black pudding, while my wife had... More

Food is ok, nothing spectacular, nothing I would recommend being in Paris and having so many options. I ordered the beef for two and it was for three, it's good but if you are used to taste beef in the US or Japan the quality of the meat doesn't compare. The service is so So, some waiters are nice while... More

Revisited after many years and I love the decor the food and the service -- all impeccable and make me feel I am having the quintessential Parisian dining experience. But -- the steep prices and especially for drinks sort of killed the buzz... Not sure when I will return.

I enjoyed a dinner here with my daughter last month. The restaurant location is great, just across from the Louvre on the left bank, in one of my favorite neighborhoods. The restaurant itself is charming and intimate. The service is impeccable. I thought the food was good, but not particularly great or distinctive. I had a salad of with grapefruit... More

We also stopped in for an impromptu lunch after touring the Lourve all morning. We sat outside at a lovely table overlooking the Seine. My sister and I both ordered the quiche and it was simple and phenomenal. The custard was rich and they drizzled it with a thin bechamel. The quiche came with a big bowl of red leaf... More

Four of us went here on the spur of the moment for lunch. The staff was very accommodating and the food was delicious. Between the 4 of us we had a combination of salads, sandwiches and quiches. All were excellent.

We happened to find this restaurant by just passing by. The food was pricey, but delicious. Was surprised by the egg on top of my hamburger, but it was good! Best coffee of the entire trip! We struggled a bit with the very strong espresso, so when we ordered a Cafe American / Cafe Long at this restaurant, we were... More

We were looking for a little bite before going on to Musee D'Orsey & this cafe was a great find. The menu is priced for its location (expensive), but a cheese serving was not only delicious, but surprisingly economical (approx €4 for a giant piece of blue cheese). As always we were served delicious crusty baguette. Our snack really hit... More

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.
