I wanted to love this restaurant, I read the reviews and my boyfriend and I were incredibly excited. The waitress was friendly, we didn't have a reservation but she allowed us to sit at a table so long as we agreed to be finished in an hour and a half. The setting was cozy, the wine was great, I had... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant whilst on a short break in Paris. It was recommended to us by a local running one of the walking tours nearby. The food was delicious, service was exceptional and we really enjoyed the evening. It appeared the manager was running the entire restaurant herself, and she did brilliantly, with all tables served... More

Not only am I still thinking about this amazingly flavorful meal I had yesterday, I also loved the adorable corner building in a convenient location near the Norte Dame, classy but unpretentious atmosphere, and courteously attentive service. With that combo it rivals the best of all meals I've ever had. We went in for lunch around 12 noon and were... More

My wife and I had diner at this wonderful gem near Norte Dame. My wife said her mushroom soup was the best she ever had. My escargot ravioli was great. She had prawns; I had the roast goose - both were delicious. Our waitress, Sara, was very helpful and answered all our questions. Her recommendations were spot on. I would... More

We came across this cute restaurant only yards away from Notre Dame. Don't be fooled by the cafe appearance from the outside, it opens up into a lovely restaurant inside. Absolutely incredible food and wine. My descriptions wouldn't do them any justice, you just have to eat there and see!

A very nice little bistro located a bit off track very close to the Notre Dame. Not big so reservation might be necessary. A bar where you enter, a low passage for the dining room. Not noisy although you sit close to one another. Service is relaxed but professional and pleasant. The food is delicious, fresh and good quantity. The... More

As we were walking away from the cathedral looking for a yummy lunch we stumbled across this great restaurant. Inside was warm and cosy with very welcoming and friendly staff. Food was amazing. We had the chestnut soup and the lentils with smoked sausage. Was very tasty and had a great bottle of wine that the waitress recommended. Very reasonably... More

I was there to celebrate my birthday with my family. I was a bit skeptical about so many positive reviews on Tripadvisor. My mistake. We were a group of five and absolutely all starters, main courses and desserts were amazingly good. Even my younger daughters loved the escargot ravioli. Definitely is on my plans to visit again this small bistro... More

Staying in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis

Neighbourhood Profile
Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
