What a delightful place!! We stumbled across it, heard the music at sidewalk level pouring out of some lousy speakers and thought we'd give it a try! The bartender is unique and delightful, the crowd interesting and the caves underneath, fascinating....GO!

surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this

First in, best dressed. Always packed but worth it. I have found it easier to get a table upstairs when band is playing downstairs. But it is not guaranteed.
