We were on our way to the restaurant next door, when we ended up here instead. We had a pleasant lunch that crafted some cool flavor combinations. The service was good, and, the manager took us on a tour of the restaurant next door too....More

The food is great, the service is great and the place looks great. Everything was delicious and had a refined taste while the price was very reasonable. Really great!

The restaurant has a unique decoration: African Masks, part of a World War I plane fuselage, safari hats, African masks, and others. It is rather small, if you come with a large group they don't give you much space to wiggle around. Because of the...More

The good: Friendly waitress, best crème brulee in times, nice ambiance, spatious enough. The bad: strange combination of spring rolls, some lettuce leaves and Rice is not a main course to me. Tasty spring rolls though. The ugly: the duck pastilla was a strange combination...More

The food and staff were both great here (and English is widely spoken), but the real treat is the venue. I felt like I had time travelled to Belle Epoque Paris. I was disappointed that I didn't meet Toulouse Lautrec.

Don't go to this place if you are an English speaking person. The service is terrible as this is an overflow and after thought fron the restaurant next door Le Bouillon Racine, which I also suggest you avoid! They share a kitchen and food passes...More

If you're in the 5th or 6th arrondissement this bistro is a good pick. It is just off St-Michel near the Sorbonne, easy to find. The menu is wide enough to satisfy most palates but still very creative, and the deco is unlike the typical...More

As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this
