Worst meal so far in our 5 days in Paris. Poor house wine. Dry uninteresting cheese on pastry (like cheese on toast only worse), their best (dearest) beef hard to cut but ok with over garlicked potato (I like garlic normally), and not so fresh...More

I went there with my boyfriend. We made a reservation and as it was a bit cold outside we chose an inside table. We had absolutely no privacy as the tables are placed together with no space between them, forming one big table and whoever...More

A short walk from Notre Dame, set back off the main road with seating outside. We ate upstairs and it was a great atmosphere (think romantic Paris garret) with good service and excellent food including gluten free options.

The service is correct. There is a very limited space between guests. We had a ´duo de poisson´ and cheese. Quality of dishes is not forthcoming. In fact it is terrible. I recommend that you walk a little bit more to find a better place.

I always stop here. The food is great and the wine selection is perfect. We recommend the escargot in puff pastry. Very very tasty. The service can sometime feel rushed but overall they do a great job. We returned a second time and it was...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

They have additional seating other than the small room at the entry. We did not have reservations but we're still seated. We ate there three times. Their steaks were quite good but more likely grass fed and not as tender as... More
