We wanted somewhere with proper French food. And found it. Foie gras to die for and lovely confit canard. The profiteroles live up to every review. If I'd had space I would've order two!

I visited this restaurant before on previous trips to Paris. It has been 8 years, but I thought I would give it a try for lunch (I typically dined at dinnertime). Although I ordered by old standby, beef bourguiognon, it was not as good has I remembered it. The beef was tender but overall, it lacked flavor. The chocolate mousse... More

I have visited this place on a number of occasions over the last 20 years. Lunch this time with my wife and two teenagers. Duck confit, Duck breast and some steak. Chocolate something for desert. Just great classic bistro food and a great way to spend Friday lunch.

Friendly owners, has English on menu under French words. Food is pricy, drink is pricy. A bottle of still water is $7euro, portion is average. There is a 20% VAT tax for food and 10%VAT tax for alcohol at the end of the check + tips, so rather pricy.

This restaurant has a 1900s style interior, perhaps authentic. The menu consists mainly of traditional French dishes, which is a good thing. But I tried two of them. Crudités (i.e. rare vegetables) were acceptable, but no better than that: the carottes rapées had been chopped up into small sections, the tomatoes and cucumbers hacked into pieces rather than finely sliced....

This was my first meal in Paris so I was not sure what to expect. We chose this restaurant due to its proximity to the hotel. We had the lamb with potatoes gratin and also the streak and fries. The lamb was tender and sliced thinly. The potatoes gratin was delicious. The steak was a ribeye with great flavor but... More

My family and I had dinner at this place after a long day of walking around Paris. The location is nearby the Panteón and it was about the only place open on that Sunday evening. The food is good and the owners are nice and helpful.

This restaurant was recommended to my husband and me by a friend before our first trip to Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed this small restaurant with checkered cloths on the table, the classic French cuisine, and the reasonably priced wine list. The beef bourguignon melted in my mouth and the desserts were wonderful. We returned this year knowing that this place... More

My best Boeuf Bourguignon (beef stew with red wine) ever! It was really good. This restaurant is in the Quartier latin, between le Jardin du Luxembourg and the Panthéon, it's a fabulous place to be. Love it!

I've been to this restaurant a couples of times as it was recommended by Parisians. The menu and wine list are excellent. On our first night in Paris on this trip, we arrived at 7 pm and we able to get in without a reservation. The place gets busy with a loyal local crowd later. We had the wonderful vegetable... More

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.
