This restaurant is a total rip off. Our food was barely edible and totally overpriced. €27 for a stringy chicken leg and mashed potato. There was no menu despite it saying so on the website so only a la carte orders. The veg and sauté...More

Handy for Musee D'Orsay and just across the river from the Louvre. We chanced upon this bistro walking back to our hotel and considered ourselves very fortunate. They squeezed us in for lunch despite no reservation and the fact that they were "full". Customers seemed...More

We stopped by for lunch, service was quick and friendly. Situated across from river, very senic area. Small, but friendly atmosphere.

A very rainy evening and we arrived quite early, but still were pleasantly welcomed by the maître d' and sat at a nice table for 2. This is obviously a well established place frequented mainly by locals, very few tourists, fairly expensive, but it is...More

We didn't have a reservation but were still accommodated on a Tuesday night, although I'm not sure why they bothered at all? We were sat next to the dishwasher in a half empty restaurant around 9pm, and the waiter alternated between mocking us for looking...More

Bonjour Madame, and thank you for your message. We read your comment very seriously and are really sorry about this poor experience. Though, we are a little surprised because we do not serve any lamb sweatbread, and we don't have any "Foie Gras Torchon" either....More

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
