The food was decent here, nothing too memorable. The restaurant is in a great location. I had the Saint Pierre, which was fairly well done.

We went there for lunch with no great pretensions. However, the place is very charming and the food and service are excellent. Good restaurant on the Rive Gauche

we were impressed from the moment we arrived - a lovely warm welcome before being shown to our seats on the terrace - what a cosy, fab terrace too! The menu was great plenty of choice for everyone - I had the fish of the day and the sauce (langoustine) was mind blowingly good! Amazing! Our waiter was friendly, attentive... More

This place has a great location with a basement terrace. On a fine evening it would be brilliant. A bit rainy the night we were there but the location and ambience both rate well. Cost for 2 courses about 45 euro each which included a couple of glasses of wine. Unfortunately the place is let down by the food. Some... More

This place was recommended to us by a French baker here in the U.S. and it was one the best recommendations I have ever received. The food, service and setting was exquisite

we ate here on my wife's birthday and it was perfect. the setting is good, being 'subterranean' and therefore although outside, protected from street noise. The service was excellent, food and wine very good and reasonably priced.

Wonderful meals Reasonable prices given the Haute like meals in a romantic park like setting. Well worth the trip. We enjoyed the duck, lobster ravioli and cod fish. My daughters loved it. Next time in Paris I'll go with my lover.

Don't be seduced by the gorgeous patio at La Petite Cour. The kitchen cannot produce decent food, and in Paris, there's no reason for any traveler to tolerate that. That's especially true in this little neighborhood, where there are literally dozens of options within 1,000 yards -- and I can tell you that at least four of them (Le Pre... More
