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!

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.

Le Cafe de la Nouvelle Mairie is an adorable little french restaurant. The wine selection (organic) is spectacular. Benjamin the owner is very friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious! The menu is written on a chalkboard with the best options available for each day....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.
