“Authentic and friendly experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

One of those places that makes you feel good for visiting. The family that run the restaurant are friendly and helpful, the food is simple and tasty and it feels like a small restaurant in Paris should.

I visited for lunch and had the roast beef with potato gratin. The roast beef was rare, just how I like it, and the gratin very nice.

Definitely worth a visit.

“Charming, small, authentic cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013 via mobile

We found this small restaurant in the Left Bank district on the recommendation of a tour guide. She was careful to qualify that it was "simple, just a few choices, but they are well prepared." All true. We arrived early, about 6:30 p.m. and sat hungrily with a beer and VERY inexpensive vin du pays (not great but you get what you pay for and this was $3.50 Euros--they had other pricier and probably tastier choices). The waiter spoke only a little English but he helped us detemine the main course choices--pork casserole, chicken and fish. We both had he pork and it was fabulous, served very simply with well prepared potatoes. The bread was fresh and delicious, made with unbleached flour in "country bread" style. At 14 Euros each for the main course it was a real buy!

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

We instantly felt we had walked into a proper French cafe, the service was friendly, the food, although not a large menu, is freshly cooked and very tasty.The selection of wine was interesting and the atmosphere was wonderful, what I came to Paris to experience.

“If I had a bar/restaurant this would be my inspiration!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

Hendrika and Claude have owned this little pocket of excellence since the eighties. You may walk through the door as a tourist but you leave as a local such is the warmth of the welcome. The decor is typical Parisienne and the food cooked by Hendrika and her son simple and delicious. Hendrika is Dutch and speaks excellent English and will happily help you with your choice of food and her creme brûlée, mmmm best in Paris. No tacky signs mention the bar was featured in Amelie but if the bar area seems familiar that is why. So seek out this small slice of heaven down one of Paris most famous market streets and become a local after only one hour of your time and you will find that you cannot visit Paris without at least one visit to see your friends in La Verre a Pied.
