I know this place for so many year. Very Parisian restaurant. The food is original for most of the foreigner especially in Asia, but you must go at least once. Play the game and order all their souflle, you will love it. Service is fine.

The chef Gérard Idoux welcomes the guests smiling and charming, adding pleasure to the gastronomic experience. The “soufflés” are simple and divine, as they must be, with fair prices.

My second time at this restaurant and it did not disappoint - food was just as delicious as I remember it being the first time around, helpings are generous and great wine list too - a must for souffle enthusiasts!

only know two places in Paris that have soufflé where prices are reasonable, food is very good, nice service, mainly locals, nice neighborhood close to “ La grande epicerie” which is worth the visit.

We had soufflés and they were all very good. Particularly the Henri IV (chicken) soufflé. The service is slow and not very attentive. We wanted to order a dessert soufflé but,after waiting 15 minutes, we gave up and asked for the check instead.

We had a jolly lunch here on a saturday - we normally go midweek, when the clientele is more politician/literary orientated. The restaurant has been revamped a bit since our last visit, and now certainly crams people in - Despite having booked, there was no...More

Absolutely a treat. Soufflé (main course and desserts) were incredible. Good service. Moderately priced. We will return!

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic

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
