We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident given our first choice was closed. Definitely didn’t disappoint! We had the onion soup, scallop carpaccio, rump steak and cheese platter. Service was good and food was lovely!

The restaurant has two fixed-prize menus that offer excellent value for money. We greatly enjoyed the salmon (both starter and main course). The dishes are nicely arranged and the environment has an authentic Paris atmosphere. (Both Verlaine and Hemingway stayed here...)

I was looking for a French restaurant but also characteristic. This is perfect! I loved the style, the atmosphere and they have a lovely old French music playing. I highly recommend it!

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
