The best lamb I tried in life. My partner ordered duck and it was great as well, but my lamb was the star of the night. Prices are in range of 15-21 euros for main course per person.

This neighborhood restaurant is not quite what it used to be. Prices up, quality down, and now quite overrun with tourists as this is a very popular neighborhood. Still you can get a good meal here with the very traditional French food. Quiet.

Had the faux filet with home made fries and a wonderful pepper sauce. Excellent. My friend had a duck salad which she enjoyed too. We went early as it gets busy and noisy later. Has a bar too if you just want drinks

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
