We are visiting Paris and staying in the 5th arrondissement. On a weekday lunchtime this place was packed with locals, some outside enjoying the 10C sunny weather. I had an excellent veal ragout with lots of vegetables and fabulous spring mushrooms in a light sauce....More

This charming bistro is the real thing....it is immediately obvious that it is frequented by locals, who engage each other, and stay for long hours, enjoying the incredible selection of wines and fairly limited food options. Like great Parisian bistros, its can be hard to...More

An adorable place across from a small square. We sat outside and enjoyed great service, delicious small plates (we got 3 that was enough for the two of us), and wine. The flavors were inspired making this one of the best meals we had.

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

I was unable to reserve online, so I asked the staff at our hotel to make the reservation. Their phone number is listed on the FB page, so another option.
