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

Yes. It is safer to reserve as the place is small. You can write an email to the restaurant, address on their website. English works fine and in case you have any allergies/intolerances they are able to adapt the fixed menu.
