Restaurant had been recommended and didn't disappoint. Steaks were succulent. We also enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine as recommended by our very knowledgeable waiter Christian. We throughly enjoyed our meal and time there.

We had the best steak! Cooked to perfection, tender and tasty. The wait staff was very nice and lack of French was not an issue. Reservations are a good idea.

I was not so convinced once I saw the interior of this place. But despite the average interior the quality of the meat, wine and side dishes is just outstanding! I’m definitely going there to try again the meat and mashed corn!

This restaurant is the place to have diner at if you love meat. I've rarely eaten better grilled meat that was as tasty. You must check this place out ! Even the wine and the sides were amazing. The service is okay and polite. I highly recommend.

After walking about, experiencing restaurant overload we came across la Cueva. We were very happy we wandered by - excellent service, great steaks. The pureed sweet potatoes were fantastic. Also nice to find a good selection of Argentinian wines at very good prices.

This was my second visit after a very good first try and then several years of walking by, wanting to make a reservation. The quality and preparation of the entrecote was outstanding, five stars. Also, the roasted corn puree was excellent. However, the avocado salad was ice cold and drowned in dessing. Same with the dessert (minus the dressing) -... More

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to check it out. We went on a Tuesday night and it wasn't crowded and that made us very happy. The decor and food were very good. We had to send our meats back to be cooked a little more but when it cam back it was perfect! Very cheap wine... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour 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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
