After dining in many fine restaurants throughout Paris where we received warm and welcoming service, we were jolted by the rudeness of the staff at this restaurant. It is difficult to understand why a chef/restauranteur would choose to be represented by dismissive and unwelcoming employees....More

We had reservations and asked to be seated outside. We were seated immediately upon our arrival in a very pretty area surrounded by plants. It took quite awhile before anybody came by to take our order. We initially ordered drinks and a first course thinking...More

This restaurant offers, in addition to traditional French dishes, a range of appetizer, dinner and even dessert souffles all of which were just excellent. Our experience there, however, was marred by indifferent and careless service. After being seated, we were forgotten and after an inordinate...More

Arrived at opening time since we did not have a reservation. We were welcomed and quickly seated outdoors. The soufflés were outstanding. I ordered the goat cheese with cherry coulis. Divine. My husband ordered the cheese soufflé and it was good also. Mine was better....More

It is one of these places that, if I lived in Paris, I would be a regular customer. The soufflés are great, service is correct and the wine is fine. Do you need another reason to go? Visit the exuberant small public garden at the...More

Best Soufflé in Paris. Actually, I have not eaten a Soufflé like this anywhere! The service is better, kinder, and nicer than previously reported. We, as a family of 4 (two little children), had a wonderful experience. Also, as vegetarians, we had no problem at...More

Wow this place is a classic example of bad service in a restaurant. It's not even just bad it was malicious. When we sat down at the table, the person laying down the silverware dropped a fork and said "merde". This is akin to someone...More

We tried the chicken, cheese, and mushroom souffles for the main course. Cheese was excellent but a bit rich for a main course by itself. Chicken was fine but not great, and the mushroom was fabulous. For desert, the caramel souffle was unbelievably good, one...More

When in Paris France I sought out to find the best traditional souffle restaurant and this is it. We tried the savory cheese souffle as an entree and then the caramel souffle for desert. Both were dishes I would return to Paris to eat again....More

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
