“Best of several”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in St Germaine de Pres for 5 nights during French Open followed hotel clerks recommendations for restaurants which worked in 4 out of 5. Reviewing Pouic Pouic site as it was our best experience.
All suggestions were very good
First recommendation was Vagenende, a stereotypical brasserie. Food and service were good but not distinctive. Other suggestions were much smaller and seemed to be extensions of chefs particular interests. Limited but certainly adequate menu selections. Visited Pouic-Pouic, Le Christine and Mangetout. One should not be disappointed in any.
Returned to Pouic-Pouic after we didn't like the menu at first recommendation. Initially said that they had no space but recognized us from previous visit and found a table for us. Chef seemed flattered that we had returned. All 3 latter selections are quite small with exposed kitchens. Small friendly staffs with limited English. At PP had cucumber gazpacho with sweet pepper ice. Very special but could not identify ice. Host pulled down a picture of sweet peppers on iPad to show me. Pork tenderloin with ratatouille was excellent. Ordered one great unidentifiable desert to be split between us. Serve us two deserts but only charged for one.
It has often been my experience in France that any relationship between what you thought you ordered and what is served is purely coincidental but invariably good.
Pouic-Pouic was unique experience.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

The food was brilliant and it was a lovely place to spend our wedding anniversary. Servings were generous and we didn't have room for dessert!

“Pleasant and tasty visit!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Ate here on 02/05/14, really enjoyed the meal. Foie gras for starter, beef cheek for main and cheese board for dessert. Extremely tasty meal, would definitely go back. Small restaurant, sits about 30 people max. If you looking for somewhere quiet and romantic, you must visit.

“Delicious food and fabulous service!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Definitely highly recommended! It is a small place but very Parisian and very comfortable. The food was not heavy but still typical with very rich, delicious flavours. They easily accommodated dietary restrictions and still presented amazing food. Our waiter was quite helpful and made great recommendations. Possibly the best coffee I have ever tasted and although I could not taste the dessert due to lactose and gluten intolerance, it is apparently to die for! Would love to go back!

“Delicious food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Very friendly staff. Nice ambiance. First courses were excellent and tasty. For the second course, the pork tenderloin was very nice, and the "faux-filet" was well-cooked and tasty, but more ordinary as far as presentation goes. Overall, a very good eating experience. Worth trying.
