We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The three sisters serving were helpful, friendly, and efficient. Their recommendations were spot on. One of us is a vegetarian, one is a carnivore and we were both very happy with the food. The recommended wine was delightful. We will...More

After a long day at the Louvre , we were looking for a restaurant on the peripherals of the tourist hive. The lamb Tagine and chicken cous cous was fabulous. Atmosphere and service was friendly and homely.

Very enjoyable lunch. Had table d'hote- 13€ per head: tasty Tunisian soup and meatball couscous. Very friendly and attentive staff. Drinks expensive but typical for Paris. Highly recommended

Well located place with an extremely delicious menu to choose from. I opted for their combo menu which I must say is a generously portioned meal which can be shared by 2 people. The price range is reasonable as we paid around 50 euros for...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
