We have enjoyed eating at this restaurant for over 10 years. After verifying on this site and the web site of the restaurant to be sure that they would be open on a Sunday night (they had been open some times in the past on Sunday and closed on other times), we stopped by after a movie and the restaurant...

We ate the set menu and really enjoyed the food. All the food was very well cooked and both myself and my wife felt the food was very good value for money. The owner and waiter were also very friendly and made you feel welcome. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area

Nice brasserie, the foie gras maison is really tasty. As a main dish i had a duck breast with honey and spicy sauce, simply delicious. Prices are good considering the food and the location. The desert was not at the same level of the dishes but maybe i just did a bad choice... I will try again since all the... More

We ate here based on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We shared a foie gras pate and I had wood pigeon for mains. Beautiful, traditional hearty food perfect for a chilly evening. Extremely good value for money with a carafe of 50cl wine 8.50 euros. The restaurant was full as we left but the service had been faultless. Would... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
