An old favourite of mine. I hadn't visited the restaurant for many years but both the soufflés sales et sucrée were wonderful. My wife had a spinach soufflé and I had a fig and foie gras, followed by pineapple and grand marnière soufflés. All wonderful and unlike anywhere else. Service excellent

Smart restaurant (some though not all were wearing ties) and a lot of money for a soufflé. The soufflé's were excellently done, but they must be turning a hefty profit here. The main difference between the soufflés were the sauces. Beautifully described in the menu but then a bit of a disappointment when the arrive in a small ramekin next... More

Cathie is absolutely a great place for soufflés in Paris. All soufflés, salt and sweet, are terrific. The restaurant is in a beautiful neighborhood and it is just the right place for lunch. A must is the cheese soufflé, the apricot soufflé and the spinach soufflé. Highly recommended. I was in Paris in summer 2015 and visited Recamier every single... More

Amazing Souffle. It is nothing like what I had from U.S. The service was great. I really recommend to try both savory and sweet souffle.

We went here as me and my friends adore souffles and this place delivered. We even order 4 savoury and 4 sweet souffle between only 3 of us (we did get some looks) alongside a wonderful bottle of Chablis. I have to say the salted caramel souffle was by far my favourite. This whole meal was meant even more special... More

I enjoyed the suggestion of a friend to have dinner with her at Le Recamier. The simplicity and the atmosphere are very convivial and simple and the service is warm and attentive.

Paris is known for rude and snobbish people.. Somehow in my many trips to the city, I experienced some great people and was almost forgetting this notion - and that's when I experienced this restaurant.. We had to wait for a table (in a not completely full restaurant) which was fine - but the wait staff was rude when he... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
