We had the set course dinner and it was fabulous! The place was small and quaint and because we are Americans we dined earlier. By the time we left, the place was PACKED, and for good reason. The service was friendly, the portions perfect and the taste - scrumptious!!

We went there with our big tour group of 26. They are very nice and the food was delicious. They even accommodated a few of us adults with menu changes from the group menu...which included a delicious vegetable potage and a chicken entree. The cheese plate for dessert was AMAZING and the husband enjoyed the molten chocolate cake.

The last review of this place really surprised us because we found it to be welcoming, authentic and really quite pleasant. It is so nice to come into a place full of families with young children and locals - the beouf bourgignon was tasty, really, quite delicious - I make it myself and I was happy to have it made...

As per title I found myself forced to give this place 1 star only because 0 is not an option. I would just like to advise anyone who doesn't speak French not to go to this place at any cost. I'm not accustomed to write bad reviews but on this occasion I feel like is much needed as I do... More

What a gem of a find! Stumbled across this place by luck whilst mooching around the area and so glad we did. Each had 3 course, myself the pate, lamb and chocolate mousse and mum the bone marrow, cassoulet and creme caramel. Beautiful food, though by far too much cassoulet!!! Rich, well cooked throughout. Accompanied by beautiful red wine and... More

The homemade cassoulet was a warm and savory remedy for a cold January night. The restaurant was full, the clientele local, and the staff welcoming. A serendipitous discovery while wandering the back streets near the Pantheon. This is a place for hearty Parisian dishes.

For over 20 years we have dined periodically in this Latin Quarter bistro (founded in 1872) which is beloved by students, locales and tourists alike. The old world atmosphere doesn't doesn't get any more authentic and prices, while higher today, are still a bargain. The only word of caution is to be careful with the wines. There are higher priced... More

We wanted somewhere with proper French food. And found it. Foie gras to die for and lovely confit canard. The profiteroles live up to every review. If I'd had space I would've order two!

I visited this restaurant before on previous trips to Paris. It has been 8 years, but I thought I would give it a try for lunch (I typically dined at dinnertime). Although I ordered by old standby, beef bourguiognon, it was not as good has I remembered it. The beef was tender but overall, it lacked flavor. The chocolate mousse... More

I have visited this place on a number of occasions over the last 20 years. Lunch this time with my wife and two teenagers. Duck confit, Duck breast and some steak. Chocolate something for desert. Just great classic bistro food and a great way to spend Friday lunch.

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.
