First time visiting Bistro, in those particular small restaurants menus are not provided and they will serve what they think is great to serve and it is an amazing French restaurant that delivers a unique dishes that I have ever tried and it's definitely worth to try. Bistros are generally small and recommended to make reservation especially for the popular... More

An outstanding bistrot for those who enjoy the best friendly french food, good prices and a warm reception. The unexpected quality of the menu surprises us. All the staff deserves our acknowledgments, and because of Bertrand, it is a unique place for rugby lovers! Certainly recomended to all Trip Advisor users!!! Congrats

My daughter and I had lunch here on our last day in Paris. It was our favorite meal of the whole trip. The menu is set and is four courses, but you can choose to have all four (starter, entree, cheese, and dessert) or have two of the four (starter and entree or entree and dessert). The staff was friendly... More

This was an unexpected find! Small restaurant with a limited menu that was excellent. Everything served family style. The walls have wine on the shelves and you pick what you want - take it away or pay a small euro corkage to drink it there! The staff were great and very friendly.

The menu is set each day and you do not order, so if there are certain dishes you do not care for, you need to check before booking. With that being said, the food and atmosphere are fantastic. They are a wine shop also, so they offer a large selection of wine. You buy the wine out of their shop... More

The overal experience couldn't be better. The moment you walk through the door you are made to feel special. Nothing is too much trouble, lots of information about the food and wine, incredibly friendly owner/staff, yet they never familiar. You can sample the wine and chose another if it is not too your liking. We had dinner. The food was... More

Came here on a business trip with my business partner. As soon as you walk in you love the place, it's busy with great decor and the tables are all close together. A member of staff tells you what the menu is (4 courses and you don't choose!). There are bottle of wines all over the wall and you simply... More

We have dined here previously and the food was even better this time. It's a must-book set menu and absolutely superb. The food was delicious with a broccoli soup, an outstanding slow roasted beef casserole followed by cheese and dessert. The food is the star but the service also rates a strong score. Bertrand and his crew are spot on... More

We had great time in Les Papilles. We loved the food, the service and the place it self. They all spoke english so we could understand what we ordered. We enjoyed the fix menu and the many options of wine to choose from. The bill was more then fair. Next time in paris , we will eat there, wherever we... More

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.
