Food was superb n absolutely delicious. We had the white asparagus, scallops, duck leg confit, lamb rack n choc fondant. Every dish looked so pretty. We went there to celebrate our anniversary of our chance meeting in Paris 4 years ago. Another lovely memory added to our album. A hidden gem and is highly recommended. 💕

One of the best meals we had on our vacation. Had the scallops and a couple of fillet dishes, everything tasted great. Service was good. Recommended.

There is only one waitress who seems to service the whole restaurant with ease and professionalism; hats off to her. The food is very good both in execution and taste. I had the €36 two course menu but ended up having dessert which was another €11 and there was a €2 supplement on my main course. I had a poached... More

We were totally stunned by this little restaurant. I booked here through TripAdvisor, after searching for a restaurant in the immediate vicinity of our hotel. We stumbled in (it was cold, that night) a partially filled little, cosy place where the sounds of the live jazz band were omnipresent. The atmosphere on friday evenings (only live jazz then) is simply... More

What's that sound? Jazz? In Paris? Looking for a decent meal with a fun twist, then don't look north, west or east, but cafe sud. The owner pianist plays here most Friday nights with a range of Parisian musicians. It's a menagerie of mellifluous hep cats. We went for dinner at 7 and left at 12 having made friends with... More

Following the good reviews, my family and I decided to book a table at Cafe Sud, which was just a block away from our hotel. The atmosphere was nice, with walls beautifully covered by books, service was efficient and the jazz band was certainly a plus. Food, however, was a great disappointment. Bread was glacial; eggs were cold, and, just... More

The food and service was excellent. We had 2 dishes of cold and hot foie gras and a roasted rack of lamb. All were well prepared. We ordered... More

A minutes walk from Hotel Mathurin, Cafe Sud is consistently a pleasant dining experience. Varied menu, always includes fresh & mouth watering fish selection. Understated decor, nice ambiance - perfect for quiet dining where conversation is key.

I had a very good meal here, the prices were a bit on the high side but probably average for the district. Staff were friendly and Anglo tolerant.
