The thing you have to know about this place is that their main business is tour groups. They bring these groups in, seat them quickly, heat up the pre-cooked meals, serve up the slop, and then get the group out the door and back on...More

Horrible. Service was the worst experienced..not only rude but slamming dishes, plates and yelling across restaurant only made the poor quality food worse. Wifes steak was only half edible due to fat and gristle...pepper sauce was ok.

If you are looking for an entertaining dinner experience a la Fawlty Towers, then look no further. Hapless staff, clueless patron, disgruntled guests and a clearly indisposed chef to top it all. The food is whatever,as expected, typical prix fixe gravel. Great location though.

We went here on our last day in Paris for lunch. We went for the very reasonable 3 courses for 16 euros deal, so we weren't expecting anything special. The food was average and the service was a little slow. I wouldn't be inclined to...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
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this
