We were very fortunate to have stumbled on this gem. Traditional country French cooking -- no prevention. Family style seating, great service and absolutely fabulous food -- huge flavour. The Duck Confit was melt in your mouth gorgeous! Prices are very reasonable. A must!

Last night we ate here from 19h00 - 21h00, when we were rudely kicked out. I have never experienced such rudeness in a restaurant in France. We were told they needed the table and we had to go even though we weren't done visiting with...More

A tiny, very French, neighborhood bistro. Or is it a cafe? Who cares - the food is delicious and very reasonable. And so is the wine. Sit with strangers and soak in the atmosphere while you make friends.

You might have to wait a little bit here but not long and it is worth the wait. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. It's a bit of a tight squeeze but there is a great atmosphere here. Very pleasant overall.

This is a very home-style cooking place. They do not attempt to do fancy cooking; their dishes are great in taste and priced fairly. It is quite a cute place to go as a couple or as a family. Amazing meat!

Found this small and lovely place after the place we wanted to go originally was closed. I stopped because of the many stickers on the door that said its recommended, and boy, they were right. At a hectic lunch time we were sat upstairs and...More

This place isn't posh. And it's not expensive. But the food is good. Locals eat here and you get a warm welcome. We shared a table with other guests and ate from the table d'hote. I enjoyed my goose pate and duck confit. The mash...More

Au Pied du Fouet is especially good on a cold, wintry day. The French onion soup was very good. The salad of haricots vert, carrots, potato and lentils was fresh and filling. The place is quite small and cramped; and a trip to the restroom...More

Ate here twice for lunch in January 2017. A nice corner haven from the business around it. Found the food and wine to be very good value. Service was also good. French onion soup was something special. A welcoming atmosphere

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
