We couldn't understand why this restaurant was quite empty when we visited because It is well located in a trendy area of Paris. The food was really good and well presented and service was also excellent. We ordered the Angus beef for two which was well seasoned and really tasty. Our dining experience was overall very pleasant.

This small bistro is tucked behind the Jardin de Luxembourg, not far from the Paris II University and the wonderful Théatre Lucernaire. Everything was esthetically served, accompanied with my favorite salad - Roquette with an unbelieveably delicious salad dressing. The foie-gras was unusually spiced and included a lovely layer of red pepper ("poivron"). The cheeseburgers, which were the recommended fare,... More

Food is great, staff is super friendly. Very nice bistro. But when the chef himself comes to meet and greet customers and check they enjoyed their meal, what could go wrong?

We went for another restaurant in the area, but as we didn't have a reservation we had to look for other option...then this little bistro was a really good surprise! All dishes were delicious. The service was also very good! The prices were fair for the quality of the service and food. Highly recommended!

Three of us went for dinner. The entrees (velouté and fish tartar) were very nice. The mains (fish, burger and scallops) all had issues. The fish was ok but the vegetables it came with were WAY too oily. The burger was very heavy and not even very tasty in spite of the ingredients which should have made it delicious. The... More

Brought some visiting relatives to this restaurant. The waitress was patient as we were taking our time, and started with apéro, with which complementary snacks were served! Homemade pesto-like dip served with mini crackers! Great start because that was delicious. For starters, we tried the tomato tarts and a tempura-style fried flower of a certain type of vegetable (which I... More

The menu isn't very big but every dish is so delicious!! We ordered different meat, so they prepared everything as we asked: raw, medium-well and medium-raw. Portions are rather big. If u order starter and main course u won't be able to manage with desert as well;)

Quite possibly my favourite restaurant in Paris. It is very small, everybody is super attentive and quick (not always the rule in France) and the cuisine is a great mix of fresh ideas and traditional approaches. The menu is usually limited to only a few items but they are very well thought out and proven to work. The class of... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood’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 neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
