We came here based on good reviews and weren't disappointed. We don't speak French but the waiter was happy to explain the menu for us. The food was outstanding, very nicely presented and fresh. We opted for three courses and walked away extremely full. It was a great meal.

This is worth a visit. The 25-year old chef is original, creative, and talented. Our courses ranged from cod fish arranged to look like shrimp, delicious chicken stuffed with mushrooms, an amazing vegetable plat du jour, and deserts with fresh fruit. The menu is constantly changing to reflect what's available in season. The owners are very efficient and accommodating. Our... More

Yes! This is a gem. Nice owner, beautiful simple atmosphere. Great Pouilly Fuisse, and the menu is very original with great ingredients. Enough choice also for vegetarians. never had pineapple sorbet, with hazelnuts, basil and olive oil... I can still taste it..

We have been coming to Wadja for years. We used to live in Paris and frequented it about twice a month. Now we make the effort to come back whenever visiting Paris and it hasn't changed. It used to have a fantastic value midday menu which I am not sure it stil has. We visited last week and the set... More

My girlfriend and I were actually looking for a different resturant and unable to find it we asked in the hotel across the road. When told the resturant we were looking for had closed the concierge recommended Wadja. We are really glad we took this recommendation as the food was truly excellent. The friendly waiter was kind enough to explain... More

This off-the-beaten-path restaurant is worth the effort to find it. It is small, but very comfortable and welcoming. Despite the diminutive kitchen, the chef manages to offer a lengthy, interesting menu of beautifully prepared meats and fish, almost all of which are served with a distinctive, personal culinary touch. And the prices won't put a dent in your wallet.

While its 73 year origins are Polish, the restaurant Wadja off boulevard du Montparnasse is a timelessly authentic Parisian bistro. It occupies a maple-stained storefront down a dim narrow street a block off the boulevard. It has the customary three-stool bar on the left and an exuberant red, green and white mosaic-tile floor. Behind its twenty-some paper-covered tables along banquettes,... More

Interesting menu. Tried the Utah oysters in red wine broth as starter. Chicken as main. And a complete mandarins boiled in sugar water during a l0time and with its juice from the cooking. Interesting combinations and twists. The recommended accompanying wines per glass were nothing special. 72 Euro for one person including champagne aperitif and a coffee. Worth the money?... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

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.
