Bonjour Madame, and thank you for your message. We read your comment very seriously and are really sorry about this poor experience. Though, we are a little surprised because we do not serve any lamb sweatbread, and we don't have any "Foie Gras Torchon" either....More

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
