We loved our dinner at this very small French restaurant. Lovely decor and great service. We had a delicsious soup, beef and dessert. They serve a fixed menue. Would absolutely return another time. Good value for money, typical french, romantic and cosy.

This restaurant is a true gem. Amazing food with a superb and large wine collection in a quaint and very Parisian atmosphere. Their starter soup was the best thing I have ever eaten, and I am pretty sure I will never find something to match...More

Our lovely daughter insisted that we visit Bertrand and his charming Les Papilles while passing through Paris on our way to Normandie. We were embraced with a warm welcome. The charm exuded! This lovely petite bistro is obviously popular as it was completely full. Bertrand...More

My friends and I loved this place and the food was absolutely stellar but... The 7 euro charge that you get pulled into for them to pick out a bottle for you is kind of ridiculous. The food was well portioned and felt the prices...More

Unpretentious, local market food with a South West slant. Delicious foie gras, blood sausage, tuna on the grill. Few tables; the owner is there and you can see the small kitchen and the big chef in the back. Definitively worth the detour.

Cozy place where the food is more like French country than fine dining. Portions were huge. You only have one choice. Everyone gets the same thing. I made reservations months in advance and got an email that I had to call the day of before...More

Delicious food served family style. Very reasonably priced with large portions. Outstanding wine selection but the best part is the DESSERT. I believe the owner is a former world class dessert chef so it is no surprise!!! FYI, prix fixe with no menu options. Includes...More

We emailed the owner about getting a spot here during a recent quick visit to Paris. This was based on my daughter’s experience here in Feb. She chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor and raved about it. Bertrand the owner got back in touch...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.
