I randomly chose this restaurant on my way to an art exposition at Ludique. I followed my own guide to "good restaurants" in paris: small, cozy, family owned/chef owned style... and of course, as soon as you see a michelin guide recommendation on the door, you are assured to be on the right track. I took the 5 course menu... More

L'agrume was recommended to us by the owner of Cézembre when we couldn't get a last minute reservation for my wife's birthday. It was an excellent recommendation. The chef created a wonderful five-flight tasting menu at very reasonable price (for Parisian standards). It's located a bit out of the Latin Quarter, which might have explained why it wasn't packed on... More

Here I am, three years after my last review of L'Agrume, and this jewel of a restaurant still is my husband's and my favorite in Paris. We visit Paris regularly, and this is the only restaurant where we eat twice each trip. The chef, who trained at the famed Le Bernardin in New York and the Plaza Athénée in Paris,... More

The reviews were excellent so we had to try it out. I was certainly not disappointed... Quite the opposite.Simple food of the finest quality cooked to perfection. We took the 5 course tasting menu which included a first course of tartare of tuna, crab and avacado..great flavour...also a piece of St.Pierre with peas...could not be more basic but it was...

On a back street, passing by one would dismiss it if looking in the window when it's closed. Completely unremarkable interior and ambiance. But when it's full, and I'm guessing it's almost always FULL, it feels like something special. We ordered the chef's tasting menu of 5 courses for 45 euro based on many of these reviews. Each course was... More

My fiancé and I went to L'argume with friends who live in the area and absolutely love good food and wine. On a Friday night around 7 we hit it early (by Paris standards). It is a charming place, the food flavor, presentation, and delivery is nothing less than excellent. We had the chef's tasting menu -- a must! With... More

L'agrume was around the corner from our hotel and we read several good reviews so we decided to try it. We had the 5 course tasting menu and we were not disappointed. The presentations of the dishes were beautiful and everything tasted delicious. My wife doesn't like fish but enjoyed the fish course. The seafood was cooked to perfection. We... More

This was such a memorable meal. The four of us ate like kings, for half the price we would have paid for a comparable meal in London. I don't know how Chef Franck does it in that tiny kitchen, but he is so intensely focused on the food, and every dish that comes out is a joy. We were blown... More

We went a few nights ago, maybe a night after the "no show" review, and everything was great -- one of our favorite restaurants over 10 days of eating very well. We had a terrific meal at this small restaurant at the outer reaches of the 5th arrondissement but easy to get to by bus or metro. They serve a... More

We've eaten at this restaurant maybe 15 times since it first opened and have recommended it to friends. The restaurant has lost the wonderful woman who seemed to manage everything -- answer emails, take reservations, negotiate changes in the menu, speed things along while being charming. Always upon arriving one was nicely seated, given water, bread, and olives, drink orders... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
