It's a great place to dine in with friends and family members. Cozy atmosphere, good service, cool terrace. Not the ideal place to be with 22 year-old friends, but ideal with relatives. Usually i order the 20 euro meal/menu, and i think it's really good.

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
