Highly recommended to us last night from a NYer we met on Ile St Louis. Stopped today for lunch. Small, cute, and hopeful place. I took one look at the menu and the wine list of biblical proportions. You've got to be kidding! 96 euros...More

There's a pleasure - pain about dining at L'Ami Louis. The food is simple; the room is small and uncomfortable; the portions are large, and the dinner is necessarily expensive. The problem: they fawn on the French regular, and they are rude to the casual...More

€30 for a side salad or €48 for 6 snails. Yes everything from starters to main courses are at a rip-off price. As one previous review said, expect to pay at least €100 per person, and this is for 2 courses without wine. The food...More
