We arrived before the kitchen was set up for the dinner service, but we seated. However the waiter was moody and not interested in making us feel welcome. However me and boyfriend ignored it knowing that generally french service isn't the best. This bad service...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
