Eaten here on a number of occasions as I really like the feel of the place. A tiny quirky typically French restaurant with probably 20 covers (so you need to book). The staff know the menu intimately and explain the food with great passion. The preparation and presentation of the food is first class. The owner/manager makes everyone really welcome... More

We ate here on recommendation from a friend. What a great place! A really old, traditional restaurant serving French home made cuisine. Brilliant personal service from friendly staff, who also translated the menu. Wonderful

This was a special experience. We were recommended this restaurant by our flight attendant and from the moment we walked in, the entire staff was all smiles. The proprietor was incredible--he saw that it was getting dark so he brought me a blanket (!) and gave us drinks to welcome us --the atmosphere here is fantastic, the tables are smushed... More

Chez Marcel was down the street from our rented apartment, so we gave it a try. The owner was amazing, worked us into his already full dinner seating in a most courteous and efficient manner. I am a vegetarian, so eating in Paris can be a challenge. The owner not only translated the entire menu for us, but also pointed... More

This restaurant must get most of its custom from the Hotel Le Six just across the road. It is too small to accommodate anyone else but this does not matter. Welcomed by the ebullient host, a native of Lyon (it shows in his food), you are seated very close to the next table (and I mean VERY close) and so... More

Chez Marcel is wonderful. The food is very tasty. The service is speedy and pleasant. The prices are low for Paris ($40-60 per person). The location is central. Unfortunately, I am not the only person who knows this! Chez Marcel is in several guide books and online services. At 8:00 PM, we were surrounded by and shoulder-to-shoulder with English speakers....

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, 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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
