This was a typical French street cafe/restaurant tucked away in a quiet and clean part of the city with lovely buildings surrounding it. If you want a little piece and quiet away from the buzz of the city this is ideal. We went right on...More

This was my must forgettable meal I'm Paris. It probably didn't help that I had been expecting to eat at an Anthony -Bordain-Featured restaurant and ended up eating here. There wasn't much to take away here, the service was decent enough, but the food was...More

Good food €10.00-16.00 for a main, the food is good and reasonable portions. The fish with caramelised onion was lovely, the vanilla creme brûlée was ok but slightly almond. This is a small restaurant with enclosed outside tables as well. The only downside is people...More

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
