We were hoping that this place would improve on our recent disappointing restaurant experiences in Paris, however it was not meant to be. The service was a bit gruff even though we spoke some decent French. The cold tomato soup with buratta was okay. The duck terrine was very good. The pumpkin soup lacked flavor and had too much butter... More

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.

This used to be a really nice local restaurant but sadly it no longer is as good. It is still ok but only ok. The Beef Bourguignon was good but everything else was a little disappointing. The service is excellent and the wine list is very good.

When in Paris I really enjoy seeking out a good neighbourhood café and enjoying French style food and hospitality? We were in Paris for the rugby and chose all of our eating venues by chance. On our first night we ate at the Polidor and that was fun and enjoyable as always, we were also stopping at the Best Western... More

I have tried last week for dinner time. I was a bit dissaointed with the familiar attitude of the service. Something is gone fbut not in the plates.... More

Simple, friendly, delicious food, what more could you want. We stumbled across Chez Fernand and had a delicious lunch of Duck Terrine, Pork and the Beef fillet with Marrow, CREME Brûlée and lovely wine, 115 euro but excellent service, couldn't fault the food, we would go back.

Excellent bistro fare. Nothing fancy but the dishes are well made and the service is friendly and professional. I had oysters and duck with lentils. Both were very good. A good test of a restaurant is its bread and coffee. Both were much better than fancier restaurants.

There were 3of us. One ordered onion soup and through it was great. Another the veal in mushroom sauce, which she had to send back. It was tough and the sauce had no flavour. She did get a new entre that wasn't so tough but the sauce was still the same. They also mixed up our side dishes. Which when... More

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.
