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

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.
