Location is very nice in a quiet tree-lined street - a lay-by actually- behind the Pantheon, albeit next to a quite busy area of the V arrondissement. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, customer service good for a busy parisian bistro, food nice, good choice of starters, a few very good main dishes. Good wine list. Very few tourists.Totally worth... More

My second time here and I like it the same. Good food, terrific ambience and very friendly service. It's the quintessential French bistro without the tourists. Prices are fair. It's one of a few places I try to go to every time I'm in Paris.

Great typical French place for lunch. Nicely cramped with lots of fabulous French people enjoying great French lunch. Few tourists. Passes all my tests. And fantastic value for money.

We discovered this delightful cafe in September and came back in October. The food, wine, and staff are all wonderfully classically, Paris. Our next trip is in February - we're making our reservations now!

Nice atmosphere, good wine, reasonable food but the service could be (much) more courteous. Never mind, there are plenty of brasseries just around the corner.

Last day in Paris and 1.30pm. All eateries full and a couple of places had run out of food. We stumbled across this restaurant which you could say "jagged it!". Waiter spoke English (with the requisite accent) and made an effort to find us a table. A very french menu which was fully explained with full Parisienne gusto and enthusiasm.... More

Wonderful spot for afternoon glass of wine with pate. Friendly service, eclectic atmosphere, near the institutes so numerous academics, and other interesting fellow customers. Outstanding choices for wine, typically inexpensive. Highly recommended!

Food is very good and not that expensive regarding to its quality. Waitress is nice, knows what she talks about regarding to wines. A bit noisy and crowded on the downside

We've left before we even ordered. Very rude staff. There are plenty of great places near by, don't ruin your evening by coming here.

2 bottles (a red & a champagne) listening to hip eclectic American-ish/jazzy music and people watching. Yummy oysters, cheese plate, and foie gras. Pleasant, chill service, great young vibe, a wonderful way to watch the passers by and relax.

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.
