We had a nice meal at this larger than expected restaurant. We had previously had a breakfast several years ago. This time it was dinner. The food was ok to good. My lamb chops were quite fatty and provided very little actual meat. I would say that this restaurant is a decent choice in a pinch, but there are far... More

Oh my God! The food here is amazing. I had the Onion soup and the tartare salmon with a green salad. It was absolutely delicious. My daughter had the steak and chips. She rated it as the second best steak she's ever had. If you are in the Saint Germain area, make the effort to have a meal here.

I will start my review with this, I have had the opportunity to enjoy meals at some of the finest restaurants in the world, so please keep that in mind when I give this review. I rank this fine establishment, against those very high end places I love that we "have a place" in Paris. And I am very happy... More

We came across the restaurant purely by accident, as it was just down the street from our hotel. Enjoyed ourselves so much, we came back a second night! The escargot was quite tasty, some of the better I've had, but the duck was the absolute star of the show. Delicious. The house wine was just fine as well. We returned... More

Stumbled upon this place our first night in Paris. What a find! This is not a touristy place. It was mostly locals when we were there. With respect, and provided great service. Service was prompt and courteous, but we were not rushed. My daughter ordered the steak, and I have a roast chicken. Both were excellent. Prices were reasonable given... More

Stopped here for lunch. Ordered the onion soup with full intention of ordering something else as well. The soup was so filling I didn't order anything else except 2 glasses of wine. Looking at other patrons dishes I wish I had more room. Everything looked excellent. This place was full of locals which was a good sign. The plate of... More

I've eaten here several times and I'm always impressed with the quality of food. The atmosphere is relaxed, the meals are priced fairly for Paris, and I was left alone to enjoy my coffee and dessert without feeling rushed. If you're in the area, drop by for a meal or just a glass of wine. Enjoy

Stumbled upon this place as we were looking for dinner. I had the most delicious roast breast of chicken with jus, and mashed potatoes - very much comfort food. My daughter liked her salmon as well. The service was typically slow, but the meal made up for it.

Had dinner here ~ Sent back my roast chicken as it was overcooked. Asked for another try at it and was given dark meat which wasn't dry, but it wasn't all that good. The grilled vegetables were just okay. My husband had a duck entree which he said was average. Our waiter was very friendly but not attentive through no... 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.
