I went for lunch as part of a small group before a PhD thesis defense at the Ecole Normale Superiore. The restaurant looked like a typical bistrot from the outside, but as has been mentioned many times here, the cuisine is more eastern Mediterranean. I...More

We went there for a diner after viewing the reviews on trip advisor, and we weren't disappointed at all! The food is delicious, the service is very good! One of the places to visit :)

In this touristy area, this place is different and offers both good food and professional service. the lamb is excellent, even if sometimes it comes very quickly to the table ..... Is it really cooked on demand? Still a very recommandable address !

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
