Typical and elegant bistrot! The food is excellent and the staff friendly and professional. A wide range of good wines. Every time I go to Paris I don't miss this pleasant restaurant. Booking required.

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

oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
