Firstly I should stress that we didn't stay to eat the food, so in all honesty I cannot judge it on anything other than selection and sight of other plates. That said, we left because we didn't want to eat what we could see around us or what the menu offered. Perhaps if you have never been to a French... More

Felt trapped in a tourist ripoff, they seem to live off past glories, any true chef should be ashamed, even to foreigners in Paris, to serve the low quality food they have, however it is friendly and cosy.

This is my second time eating at Le Petit Prince, but it was my first time as a vegan. The staff was extremely helpful with my diet, and the chef even modified a dish for me. The food was great, the staff was amazing, and the neighborhood is lively.

Went here for the first time having seen it on website for hidden gems in Paris. Beautiful little establishment in a very old quarter of Paris, delightful location and interior. The personal service of the owner and his manager was superb. The starters were excellent. I had rack of lamb and my friend had braised lamb - cannot recall the... More

First went over 20 years ago and still excellent. Romantic French interior, good fixed price menus, and outstanding service. The duck and fish entrees were well prepared, and the scalloped potatoes were the best I've ever had. If n Parir, book a reservation online and enjoy!

Absolutely delightful hosts running this beautiful old mansion turned into a restaurant. Our elegant table setting foreshadowed some delicious menu items. my first course was a fish soup, a rich blend of flavors perfectly done. Each mouthful brought me more satisfaction. My pork jowls, however, left me disappointed. It tasted more like beef pot roast, while still, tasty, was too... More

I went to this place for dinner because I read a review that called it a real gem. It was mid-week, but the restaurant was surprisingly quiet. I was on my own, and seated near a small group that was clearly friends of the owners. Nothing particularly amiss here, except I felt like I was intruding on a private party,... More

The restaurant was chosen as a typical French but we have to wait for almost one hour for eating. The food was excellent but it is needed a better service

Where to start? Fabulous atmosphere, great wine.... As a dog lover, I find it very charming to see a cute little dog inside the restaurant, sitting and watching the coats without bothering no one. Go and eat in that restaurant! And if you hear Michael Jackson in the background, relax, it will disappear.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
