We stumbled across this place after visiting the Marie Curie museum and wow what a lunch. It was pricey - 73Euro for two courses, coffee and wine but it was worth it. Pork with pea salad and a sausage with a lentil salad were our...More

This was a great find just minutes from the Pantheon and near the Sorbonne, which likely explains why it appears to be a popular student meeting place. They have a good wine list to select from and the menu is written on a blackboard featuring...More

This restaurant was directly behind our hotel and we gave it a try our first night in Paris. We were the only English speaking people in the packed cafe, the waiter spoke broken English at best, and all the menus were only in French. It...More

We used to live in the neighborhood, and that's how we discovered this place. Once again it was superb in the funky-little-bistro category. I had oysters to start and then duck. Both were succulent. It's a wine bar, so there's always something new to try....More

Our first night in Paris, and we found this thanks to a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. So glad we did. The waiter was super helpful, and both food and wine were delicious (if a little pricier than expected). The decor was chic and...More

Unfortunately we didn't find this cafe until our last day in Paris, actually it was recommended by a charming young gentleman in a nearby wine shop (who also recommended a delicious bottle of wine!). We enjoyed a delicious lunch from the blackboard menu (in French)...More

Location is very nice in a quiet tree-lined street - a lay-by actually- behind the Pantheon, albeit next to a quite busy area of the V arrondissement. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, customer service good for a busy parisian bistro, food nice, good choice...More

My second time here and I like it the same. Good food, terrific ambience and very friendly service. It's the quintessential French bistro without the tourists. Prices are fair. It's one of a few places I try to go to every time I'm in Paris.

Great typical French place for lunch. Nicely cramped with lots of fabulous French people enjoying great French lunch. Few tourists. Passes all my tests. And fantastic value for money.

We discovered this delightful cafe in September and came back in October. The food, wine, and staff are all wonderfully classically, Paris. Our next trip is in February - we're making our reservations now!

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

I was unable to reserve online, so I asked the staff at our hotel to make the reservation. Their phone number is listed on the FB page, so another option.
