By FAR the best meal we had in Paris! My wife and I stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. First of all it was nice that they were actually open on Sunday as a lot of restaurants are not. We found this to be...More

Small restaurant on a lovely small square. Because of the good reviews we decided to try it out, but we were disappointed with the quality of the served menu. Very small portions, not at the right temperature (risotto was cold) and as a result no...More

We had such friendly service at this little restaurant and the food was good, too! I had the onion soup and it was fantastic. We came here after Notre Dame and it was a perfect, quiet place to relax.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
