Enjoyed this meal. Had the pork shop. Yup. Typo I hope. It was a delicious pork chop. And goat cheese entree. Typical French - tables in a line. They pick it up so you can get seated.

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

No dress code, we visited in jeans and tee shirts. However, the place is old school, something we did not know when we went. Nice food, enjoy.
