We had a great meal here- a neighborhood place for some friends of ours. I had an enormous steak tartar , well seasoned and fresh. Good service and good vibes. Great area to walk about in too..

This is the quintessential Paris sidewalk cafe in a quiet street overlooking a small triangle park with a tree. This is a nice place to stop and enjoy life. It is always busy and they take good care of you. 🙂

We arrived around 11pm and the restaurant was still full of people having dinner and drinking. The service was good and our food was very tasty.

We had the best foie gras at Le Hibou! And the waitress was very knowledgeable in helping us with the choice of wine to accompany it. Great experience!

If you they have the space and it’s not too hot, have a cocktail in the upstairs room, it is so quaint and the lead bartender makes some delicious craft cocktails. We went there several nights after having dinner.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

We paid in cash because it was just drinks. I don't think they take Amex. Hotels and known shops are use to accept Amex, but restaurants are not so easily accepting the card in France.
