A friend recommended this place. The food was very expensive. I ordered chicken, and it came out lukewarm. But my wife’s fish was good. It seems they were living on their reputation, but not great food.

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
