Intimate restaurant with a fixed menu. We were seated on the patio at what was almost a communal table but had great conversation with our neighbors. The menu that night consisted of a soup, followed by pork tenderloin with vegetables and polenta, served family style....More

We had one of our better meals in Paris. Fixed menue with no choice of dishes: cauliflower soup, braised pork, dessert. Complemented by a bottle of Saint Julienne. Tasty!

My TA ratings are based on expectations being met - and that's what we got here. Delicious set menu in a cosy classic bistro atmosphere served with the personal attention of Bertrand himself. Pleasantly brusque to achieve all that he does. The wine advice is...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

Yes. It is safer to reserve as the place is small. You can write an email to the restaurant, address on their website. English works fine and in case you have any allergies/intolerances they are able to adapt the fixed menu.
