Me and the partner managed to get a seat outside to enjoy the sun. The drinks were good especially the cocktails. The food was ok. Yes the meat on the sandwiches was packet meat so don't expect anything more. However people to us who had Salmon and a cheese and salmarmi platter must have been plesently surprised as it look...

We had the salmon salad, ceasars salad, the burger and the crème brulee. All of them were dreadful. The only good thing was the service - very kind.

From the reviews it looks as though this establishment changed owners or managers mid-2016 and since then the place leaves much to be desired. Our experience reflects the more recent negative reviews and this was a meal it disgusted us to have to pay for. Stopping in for a late no-fuss lunch we nevertheless expected to be served something fresh... More

A cosy place close to Pont Neuf and Notre Dame. The staff is really very nice and friendly. The food is ok, nothing more, nothing less. We had fun having lunch here.

Our first trip to Les Voyelles produced nothing, not even lunch, as it was closed because of construction on the surrounding building. A month later, the restaurant was open for lunch but might as well have been closed. The food is mediocre, the service inattentive. On the plus side, the back room is a cosy spot, lined with bookshelves and... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant quite by accident. It was utterly superb, the highlight of our trip to Paris. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was the best we have eaten in France. We cannot wait to return to Paris and this will definitely be the first place we visit when we do.

We had tickets on the Vedettes du Pont-Neuf sightseeing cruise on the Seine. We arrived early to scout a lunch spot before the 13:30 departure. Les Voyelles was a great find. Our young server brought over the chalk board and translated all the lunch offerings for our French impaired minds. The wife went with a grilled shrimp salad and I... More

Genuinely the best and most relaxed spot in Paris! After wondering around the Notre Dame and heading towards the louvre we stumbled upon this restaurant/wine bar. (Only stopped for a drink as the sun was very strong and sapping our hydration) Ended up looking at the menu and being astonished. The meals on offer were superb , even with their... More

We visited this gem for an early lunch, and were delighted that we did. I had a generous portion of lamb chops with green beans and a beautifully made pan sauce. The chicken schnitzel burger in country bread was similarly delicious and made the burgers offered by fashionable gourmet burger joints look underwhelming and overpriced. The staff are exceptionally friendly... More

Stumbled on this small place while traveling with my daughter. I've been all over Paris-this is my fourth trip-and was so happy we decided to stop here. I noticed there were locals dining, not tourists-a good sign. Nice classic ambiance. Had a wonderful meal and nice wine. The server was gracious and knowledgeable. I would recommend this place to anyone.... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
