Exception value, and good food for budget travelers. 6 of us browsed along rue de Descartes and decided to try this little restaurant. It is located a bit off the busiest section of the street. Early bird (before 8:30pm) 3 course dinner is 13 EURO...More

This is not the best restaurant in the area in terms of quality of food, but it makes up for it in quantity and hospitality. The owner was amazing, welcoming us from the moment we perused the menu from outside, and offered us free aperitifs....More

A very nice little restaurant in the Latin Quarter. We had excellent service from the quirky owner and a waiter. He even moved a couple who were smoking further away as the smoke was annoying us. He did this without us having to say anything....More

Avoid this restaurant if you can! We were ushered upstairs by the busy, pushy owner. Our table was moved three times to accommodate new guests arriving. Put it this way, the owner's main concern is getting plenty of bums on seats and that's about it!...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
