The location is nice with a cellar downstairs. The service was not prompt and unfriendly but you got what you ordered to substantially upscale prices. A Spanish singer with his band was performing, because his performance was so poor, he needed two blonde dancers to be accompanied.
After 10 minutes you could not look at it and we left. The presented invoice included € 25 per person for this poorest performance I ever saw. But that was not all, paying by credit card the first transaction was cancelled, so they said us, so we had to start it again. Coming home we saw the amount was charged twice. Now we also know, why there were so few guests and no French.

My wife and I were walking through the Latin Quarter on our last night in Paris and wanted one last place to stop for a drink. We were talking about the movie "Midnight in Paris," and found Trois Mailletz. We didn't eat, or go to the downstairs club. But, it was a amazing experience upstairs. Rotating piano players alternated between French and American classics - and everyone danced and sang along. Magical. It was a weekday night, around midnight, and it seemed a local crowd where everyone knew everyone else. I appreciate it was probably a unique experience, but its one we will not soon forget. Service was a bit distracted, but it sort of fit the atmosphere.

We would try really hard to find something positive to say about the place, though it is not easy. Well, the booking process was quite smooth. If you e-mail the establishment using the 'contact-us' button on their Web site, you get the confirmation in no time (time differences considering). If you have a special request, e-mail "Attention Nadia." Not sure why the reservations were needed though; we have been there on a weekday night, and about 30% of seats were vacant. Maybe it's different for weekends or busier seasons.
Great location, in the midst of the busy and bustling Quartier Latin, opening to rue Saint-Jacques. And there is no entrance fee, but you will have to order something, either a meal or (as in our case) a bottle of wine or other drinks.
That is about all positive we got. The service was quite acceptable, even friendly. But the show itself was a mismatch on an amateurish level. We could still see how Aux Trois Mailletz is viewed more favorably by our fellow travelers; is is still more authentic than the glitzy and corny tourist venues such as Moulin Rouge. But we honestly never felt any difference between Mailletz and some sub-quality bar elsewhere. The 11 PM show opened with a Spanish band of a street-music style and quality; it was followed by a series of bland atop-the-table dancing by Mailletz's employees, who could have easily been the place's patrons gone 'wild.' After an hour or so, and upon finishing our bottle of wine, we started heading home. The waitress begged us to stay promising 'an Oriental dance', whose performers pitifully looked like some bad-taste cruise entertainers.
Maybe it was our unlucky night; we really want to believe so and wish the proprietors and performers the best of luck. But as it was, quite undeserving a visit.

Went there for the live jazz, but we arrived too early (jazz in the basement starts after 11 PM) and we didn't want to eat, so we were seated at the small bar where the unfriendly waitress hardly took notice of us. Eventually had cocktails, which were totally overpriced at 27 Euros!! All the while a strange mix of live classical piano and terrible singing tortured our ears, so we left again quickly.

Food is decent. Service is horrible. Nothing else to add. Be warned. Example: asked for water two times and never got it. Ordered tapas and never got it. Waitress never gave us bread or olives, while the other tables were provided with that and she never came around to ask us if we wanted more drinks.
