“Just another tourist trap!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

I was staying in the neighborhood and wanted to give this place a try. After having had great food at other restaurants in the area, this one really came up short for me. The wine tasted as if it had been opened for too long. Food quality is not good. I had asked my landlord for recommendations and Beaupraire was not one if them. I should've stuck to the list he gave me. Try Chez Gladines instead just a few minutes walk on Blvd St Germain. Food there is great! Service is much better too.

“Not worth the time or money”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Food was poor and not the cleanest place, but ambiance/service/location was good. I was baffled why it was packed all day long, but think that has something to do with it being a block from Notre Dame Cathedral. We spent 10 days on this trip in Paris and hit many other eateries. This was our most expensive meal of the trip (we only ate at moderate priced cafes on this trip) and by far the worst. Definitely not worth the time in a city packed with thousands of better options.

“Very average food”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The menu is Basque. The food was average, with rather small portions. This area, on the South Bank of the Seine is no longer the source of good value restaurants it once was. Paris is just expensive. In that context this restaurant is fine for a bite to eat and seems popular with locals and tourists. It's not one of the best by any stretch of the imagination. Very friendly staff with enough English to cope with my Franglais.

“Beautiful spot, disappointing meal...”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We planned on having a meal here when the weather in Paris finally cleared up because of its great outdoor seating. It also happens to be a location for a scene of "The Devil Wears Prada". We went for lunch. The waiter and waitress were so nice to us and the rest of the customers. The owner was inside but did not interact with the customers as is customary in Paris. She was with her parents and her baby. We noticed there was not a "formula" for lunch, but ordered the gazpacho and the filets de dourade. I have to admit, the gazpacho was the best I have ever had anywhere!! But the fish... the filets were so small, If I was fishing, I would have used them as baitfish. They were unseasoned except for some olive oil with diced red and yellow peppers. It had rice as a side, but it was also bland.
So that was our disappointing meal. Lovely spot, very friendly staff, great gazpacho, but bad "plat".
