We fell across this on our last night in Paris, and a lucky fall it was. It is another of the relatively small, excellent places to eat in the neighborhood. It does appear to be owner operated, a good thing, and she moves with friendly efficiency. The food was very good, reasonably priced, with a nice wine selection. It is... More

After walking 10 miles as tourists that day, we were relieved to find this restaurant just steps away from our hotel had great reviews. We were the first customers for dinner and the waiters were super helpful with menu translations and dish modifications for my food intolerances. They made us feel at home and welcome. Then the food was great... More

Whenever I am back in Paris, the first thing I want to do is to come back to this small and lovely place. There are very few places like this where you can eat so well and at a very decent price in such a great atmosphere. Delphine and Greg gave me a very nice welcome the first time I... More

I found this place while searching for something close to our hotel in Montparnasse, and it was only 300m from our hotel with good reviews. My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and will try to go again before we leave Paris. The menu has great variety and the food has great character. Wonderful wine and dessert topped...

A lot of attention in the kitchen makes for some very flavoursome and enjoyable food. My son chose one of half a dozen cheeseburger options (along with the tartare, something of a house specialty). My wife opted for caramalised chicken, and I had a very good steak with superb mashed potato. Good wines by the glass, carafe and bottle. The... More

Visited here both lunch and dinner. The waitress who served my lunch hungry spouse was delightful and the Tartare and mash much to his liking! So off we go for dinner, as the electricity in our building was non existent this evening! I only had a rocket salad with bresaola sans the chevre, fresh and as expected. The tartare was... More

Tiny restaurant in Montparnasse. Delicious food especially the tartares and fish dishes. Also good deserts. Very popular so quite busy and noisy. Service is very nice given how busy they are. We went there twice.

Came over this place wandering near our hotel, fabulous food, simple, flavoursome dishes, could have eaten here every night! Reasonably priced and plenty locals. Give it a go!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
