American friends in town - we had lunch here and meal was superb. The staff was super friendly and gave my friends time to ask for food and drinks in the newly-learned French phrases we taught them. Great area.

Especially on a nice day, get a seat outdoors, with a view of the grand entrance to Sorbonne and the fountain in the square. Having some with friends, I sampled at least 4 different dishes, and all were solid, but nothing spectacular. But once you...More

I hesitate to review L'Écritoire: we consider it a hidden gem and would hate to see it go all touristy. The other restos on this place are very touristy, but L'Écritoire has a local feel. It offers very standard brasserie fare: entrecôte with bernaise, duck...More

Great spot on the Place de Sorbonne off the main street. We stopped for an afternoon drink (or two) and it's probably best for just that. Food didn't look that great and reviews are also mediocre at best, but if you're look for a place...More

This is a very average restaurant in Paris. Good service from friendly staff, but (maybe I was just unlucky?) very mediocre food. Six escagots, of which two were impenetrable, and a very chewy faut filet with tepid sauce poivre and very dry French fries... Oven...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
