Beautiful setting but very average food. Very basic salad with industrial dressing and a waiter that means well but is way too personal.

This cute little place offers some really authentic French foods. We had a lovely time eating snails and frog legs. The mains however could use more decorations. Good flavours overall. And the music band is a highlight.

This was an optional extra, the farewell dinner. What a fabulous night, great food, great entertainment, free flowing wine and beer, always helps. Superb location and venue, if you get a chance this is well worth a visit.

We visited this restaurant with an English tour group. It was a great evening with friendly staff, a limited menu, but characteristically French. There was a choice of 5 starters, 5 mains & 5 desserts and unlimited wine.. Musicians sang and played the guitar and...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
