Super fresh food. Nice staff. Good prices. The outside is a little bit noisy because it's situated on a Main Street, but it's not horrible. This is he best cafe we have wandered into on out visit this far. Authentic, yet familier food. CRISPY SALADS!...More

Old school restaurant that's been around for years. Classy waiters, top notch food and drinks, and prices that you would expect.

This was our third time over perhaps 15 years and it has always been wonderful. The setting is traditional French. The service is outstanding for those old enough to remember when service was an experience in itself. The food is amazingly good with a wine...More

My husband and I stopped at Voltaire for lunch in between visits to the Louvre and Musee Orsay, since it is in such a convenient location. We read the reviews on tripadvisor and it sounded like a good lunch option. We would definitely recommend it...More

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

You don't really book a table. French Café culture dictates that one simply walks up to one of the tables on the sidewalk (you can go inside...but why?) and sit down. They'll have plenty of seating. Enjoy!

It depends on your idea of celebrating! As others have said depends on number of guests as the café area is small, charming but limited menu. I have not yet sampled the restaurant but that might be a better option for a... More
