Located next to Rue Muffetard, the tiny, typical street in Quartier Latin, features good food at a reasonable price. Delicious onion soup, very good steak and vegs aside (French style), great mousse au chocolat. Different menus to please everyone. Staff is polite, French style.

We happened across this place on our first night in Paris, I got a bad feeling and wanted to leave before we ordered but my partner insisted. Absolutely nothing we ordered was good, French onion soup was gluey, mussels were pathetic, ribs weren't even ribs...More

The Vielle Tour is a great place for al fresco dining and people watching. The food was really good and the service friendly and efficient. There is often some street entertainment nearby also.

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
