The coffeee was fine, the service decent, but it was full, and with a lot of weird people too! This is the kind of place where the (often delightful) French tendency to sit for hours without consuming things could and probably should be clamped down upon.

My partner and I tried this place for dinner tonight. The service was good. The waitress was friendly. However the food was terrible. My partner had the steak - this was an incredibly thin, uneven piece of meat which was folded over to give the illusion of a thick piece of steak. There was no sauce or seasoning. I had... More

We had a wonderful meal on Saturday night in the private upstairs room which we'd booked for our group of 30. We pre-ordered a 2 course meal and drinks for 20 euros and were delighted with the quality of the steak and salmon and home-made apple tart and pear tarte tatin. The waiter was really helpful, and the chef accommodated... More

The only nice thing here is the view. The service was dismissive. I ordered one of the specials and as my husbands plat was being served they announced they were out of what I ordered. I reordered their Magret de Canard....what a mistake. It was covered with a brown gravy and overcooked. No one bothered to check whether everything was... More

We had a salad and the croque and both were very good. The Italian salad was a nice surprise as it came with a little bowl of pasta and some ratatouille. Service was good and prompt and it wasn't too expensive. Locals seem to love it and it's a great spot for people watching.

We stop here for breakfast every Sunday we are in Paris – Nearest Metro is Censier Daubenton. Such a lovely spot with the church bells and the little shops. Service is reasonably quick and they give you a chance to speak French, which we really like. It is the best value breakfast in town, with unbelievably good coffee, fresh orange... More

This is one of the best of its kind in the 5th arr. Specially early in the morning and late before midnight. A beautiful feeling of the whole square of Saint Medard. It's a must.

Great service, very friendly. Wonderful French fries. Everything was very fresh. I would recommend this café. We stopped after grocery shopping on the Rue Mouffetard. We had the tapas and the croques.

We came in for breakfast and despite being packed out the front, the waitress found us a lovely little table for two inside right next to a window. The breakfast consisted of coffee, fresh orange juice, baguette and croissant and my partner had the egg option as an extra. Everything was absolutely delicious including the butter and jams that accompanied... More

Le Saint Médard reopened in April 2014 after an important renovation. The menu is a mix of chic snacking and Parisian brasserie cuisine. Make sure you don't leave without a taste of our famous Nutella tiramisu!

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.
