Being that we are staying near Place Maubert we started walking up the hill further into the 5th and we came upon this restaurant and made note to try it out because they had Cassoulet as a house specialty – and we did several days later. This is an old style place, blonde wood paneling plaster figurines, etc.
The food was very reasonably priced much more so than other places just a few blocks down the hill, and very tasty. We arrived around 8 and it was close to empty but by the time we left 90 minutes later it was totally bustling with both locals and Americans. This isn’t a fine dining gourmet experience, but doesn’t pretend to be one either - just good solid traditional French food. They carry on the old tradition of opening a bottle of wine for you and just charging you for the amount that you drink – how nice. In addition to the cassoulet we also had a veal poelie, quite decent. If yu don’t make a reservation, go earlier than 8:30.
