This was our second visit here. We first visited 4.5 years ago, our first trip to Paris. We had an amazing time back then and thought we should try it again. The owner greets every guest and treats you like family. Please confirm your reservation...More

It's a shame that neither tripadvisor nor the Les Papilles site advise that it is actually closed for summer. A long walk for nothing.

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.
