We stopped here for a late lunch following a visit to the Rodin museum (we chose it simply from how busy it was and how great the food looked as we were walking past). It was a great choice! Service was warm, attentive and efficient....More

Cafe Varenna is near our Hotel ( on Boulevard Raspail) in the 6th, very warm and friendly, excellent service and a solid menu of good food and wines. YES, this will be a regular spot in Paris.

Our last night in Paris and our hotel concierge suggested this restaurant. Restaurant was busy but the manager was able to secure a table for us. We both had chicken dishes which were tasty.

Nice spot in in the Invalides area. Open most hours and serves good food. Lamb shoulder great, roast duck a bit dry though. Service is typically French - professional and formally polite.

This is not a cheap place to eat but the food, service, decor and atmosphere were lovely. Even though it was quite expensive it was better value than others nearby which were equally expensive with poor quality food.

We did not eat breakfast there. I'm not sure it's open for breakfast. At Hotel Pont Royal the breakfast is wonderful!

I have seen dogs there but it is not really a patio. It is more a row of small table and seats each side. Rue de Bac is a busy place and your dog would have to be well behaved to avoid being trod on by pedestrians!
