With a heavy heart I must report that the great Aux Charpentiers, where we have been enjoying lunch for 20 or more years, has closed. This was perhaps the most characterful restaurant in Paris - a quirky, old-fashioned bistro with an irreplacable atmosphere, and terrific...More

Cozy restaurant. Real French atmosphere. We got foie gras. Excellent Tartar. Best I have ever tried. Good homemade frites. Kids got burger. Not child friendly. Bit expensive but what isn't in Pairs :-) My biggest recommendation.

A traditional Paris bistro near St Suplice, we have had lunch here on a number of occasions. We have settled on the boudin noir as it is so good. It is served just with roast apple. Very simple, very tasty.

You are looking for a cool place, for simple, quality traditional french cuisine, that's the one. No surprises, years after years, the chef(s) prepare good food. The service is jovial though the waiters can be very busy.

This is NOT a 3 star Michelin restaurant. But it has soul and they know how to cook. Great pepper steak! Only French spoken - medium rare can get difficult. And excellent Crème Brûlée. The red wine could've been more characteristic.

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

This historic bistro was originally opened in 1856 and is a real institution in Paris' Saint Germain des Pres district. The name 'Aux Charpentiers' means 'To Carpenters', and the restaurant has engravings, photos and furniture commemorating this noble trade. The menu is traditional French bistro fare with a certain amount of influence from the rural Correze region with its famous Limousine beef. The atmosphere is friendly with an eclectic mix of locals, tourists, politicians and journalists.
