We reserved a table here before we arrived in Paris - and we were so glad we did! The prix-fixe menu, which is the only dinner option, was an absolutely delicious 4 course meal. We asked the owner to recommend a bottle of wine, which...More

We had our hotel make reservations a couple of weeks before our arrival. 4 course meal = no options - was 38 euros. The food was delicious, service faultless, and small restaurant full.

What a lovely little place! Zinc bar, tables for two with sturdy but not starched napkins, just what I like. They give no options, you eat what they prepare for that day. I love that they let you serve yourself. We began with a delicious...More

Great dinner at Les Papilles. Meal started with delicious green bean gazpacho. Very tasty and tender lamb stew. We had a tasty cheese course followed by very tasty and refreshing strawberry panna cotta. Recommended wine was perfect. Highly recommended.

We had one of those meals of a lifetime here. What was served for the day: The best broccoli soup we have ever had, with homemade croutons, fresh creme and bacon. Lamb that was slow cooked for 8 hours, beyond tender and mouth watering. Then...More

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
