We had a very good meal here. Wife had chèvre salads and then cow au vin. I had pleurottes (mushrooms) as a starter and then cod with a champagne neuter blanc sauce. Everything was excellent. The place is lively and the tables abut each other but all works. Cannot recommend this bistros more strongly. Will definitely return

I cannot really put my finger on the reasons why i like this place so much but let me name a couple: - the staff making you feel welcome in a very friendly unintrusive way... More

Thanks to Tripadvisor we found this quaint Parisian bistro near our hotel and were luckily able to sneak in for an early dinner. We left our dinner selection up to the waiter and it did not disappoint... an absolute exquisite culinary dining experience. Must book.

Great food, great service. Be sure to have a reservation as it is a small intimate place but worth planning ahead for.

We had dinner here for our last night in Paris and although our meal wasn't great we would definately return. As previously noted it is a small but cosy restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and great staff. Our appetizers were both nice but when our entrees came, not so much. We had both ordered the steak and the owner didn't... More

A small place - be prepared to enjoy close company of fellow restaurant goers (the place was almost full when we got there(. landlord and waitresses extremely nice; food was very good (but portions not very big). The green beans entree was excellent, and so was the fish of the day, and the desert.

This was right opposite our hotel so we thought we'd try it. The meat eaters in the family thought it was great but it didn't have a great choice for non meat eaters or cater particularly well for a food intolerance. Nice buzzy atmosphere though.

We had reservations on the recommendation of our son. The owner welcomed us with a handshake and a huge smile. It is on a quiet street with tables outside and inside. The food was delicious and the wine too. Prices are reasonable. We truly enjoyed the experience. If you do not speak French don't worry you will be fine.

its been a couple of years but I made it back, its quirky, its small, its great. Just going to the toilet is an experience. The owner was there this time so I got to go in the hidden cellar and wonder about its history. The food was just great. The wine choice was good and the prune aperatife after... 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.
