Very nice welcoming, smiling and doing it's best to accommodate. Great location with a view on notre dame de Paris. The food is good and plentiful, especially the steak, grilled on the fireplace Deserts are also ok.

My son and I were directed to Le Petit Chalâtelet by the desk clerk in our hotel. It was a crowded night, as always, in the Latin Quarter but it took no time to locate as it neighbors Shakespeare & Co. Everything was delicious and...More
