In the lee of St Etienne du Mont in the Latin Quarter, and with an interior that goes back to the late 17th century and cellars to the 12th century, L’Ecurie oozes history from every pore. The interior is rustic but genuine and not faux-rustic ; there is even a genuine manger in situ as befits a former stables.
This was lunch and whilst there is a 3 course menu for 17 euros we plumped for a main and a pudding. The lamb cutlets and the rump steak were both excellent as were the accompanying chips/fries ; no nonsense about trendy matchstick chips here. Two large profiteroles served warm were excellent as was the superb cheese platter. The latter at 6.50 euros was the bargain of the last few days : 4 different cheeses presented at a perfect room temperature. A half litre of quaffable Cote du Rhone at 6.50€ and a Calvados digestif on the house meant our cup had runneth over. One minus: the bread was suspiciously aged but that did not detract from an excellent experience.

Felt like I was in an old tavern much like the one in the first LOTR movie. Great atmosphere! The food was pretty great and very affordable. I had three courses + wine and I paid like 21 euro. Glad I checked it out!

I have been here with a group of friends.
The place is very close to Pantheon and Latine Quartier.
The place is dark, the stairs are high and there is not a lot of lights but literally it seems to be in the Middle Ages.
The waiter was kind and willing to satisfy every request.
I ordered the foie gras and lamb chops. Great!!
We also ordered a good pinot noir and the waiter offered us sangria at the beginning and spirits at the end. We spent 23 euro with everything included.
If you are looking for a fancy place don't come here. But if you want to try a new environment, eat properly and save money this place is for you.

We tried this restaurant as it was recommended in an online review in The Telegraph. It was a great choice for our first night in Paris - the wine flowed and the food was plentiful and value for money. It's not sophisticated food but it's decent and the steaks were large and cooked to my liking. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone, but particularly couples.

17 Euro for a three course dinner is possible at L'Ecurie on Rue de Ste-Genevieve de la Montagne in the 5th. Don't let the outside fool you.It is like eating in a tavern out of the 1500s. The ambiance is great. Ladies, take note: The restroom offers a hole in the floor so you might want to take care of matters before you leave your hotel. The lasagna is their specialty and there is plenty on the plate. Great place on a tight budget.
