If you want a genuine Paris experience, sans Bon Ton, this is it. The prices are reasonable, and has standard fare for the venue.

Great service in a very nice location. My husband and I stopped here for some warm beverages and to let the rain pass by. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace and watching people walking by.

We wandered into Le Rouquet on a balmy autumn afternoon for lunch. The old style awning and people relaxing outside, watching the world go by along St Germain, were attractive features. The restaurant itself was clean and tidy and offered some very nice options. We enjoyed the Salad Nicoise (well sized - too much for the lady) and the Caesar... More

This is a low level version of the snobbish Cafe de Flore a few meters away. Its design is old and aging; the waiters are typically Parisian i.e. mostly unfriendly and bored; the food is not tasting very good and is never creative; prices are too expensive for the level of experience you will get. The only appeal is its... More

After exploring the area we stumbled across this bistro. I should have read the TripAdvisor advice beforehand. We had 3 drinks (2 hot chocolates and 1 small beer), which cost 18 Euros. They even have the cheek to include a 13% service charge (which is not advertised) for possibly the worse service I have ever experienced. The owner ignored my... More

After a long day at both Rodin and d'Orsay, my wife and I wanted someplace to unwind. Not wanting to face the two mainstays of St. Germaine (de Flore and Deux Magots), we settled on Le Rouquet. As others have noted, the service is a bit brusque (although that isn't uncommon in the touristy areas of Paris). Our waiter warmed... More

Went to this shoddy excuse for a cafe after trying to find somewhere for a quick drink before our evening meal. We were not welcomed by their extremely rude staff so we showed ourselves in. The menu was pitiful. The most amazing thing to me was all of the items were in both French and English so was quite surprised... More

No-one is expecting to eat out cheaply in Paris, but if you are paying 8Euros for a croque monsieur at least I would expect it not to be completely burnt black underneath, consequently killing any flavour in the cheese/ham. The service was delivered in no more than a series of grunts, and no hint of a smile at any time.... More

Awesome bistro, original 50s fit out, trad waiters, great food. Had a great, reasonably priced lunch of salade with duck, potato beans for me, steak or hamburger frites for the others, good house Bordeaux. Friendly staff. Go there!

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.
