We had travelled to the Latin Quarter for the Carl Marletti lemon tarts - which were amazing. Since it was dinner time we found Au Bon Coin on TripAdvisor and decided to try it. We were both trying the specials - which were dishes we would not normally ordered- and they did not disappoint! For a corner neighborhood bistro and... More

Typical-looking Paris bistro with incredible food! I started with a delicious country pork pate, served with homemade pickles, then went on to have boudin blanc -- white sausage with mashed potatoes and sauce. I don't know what they put in it, but it was so savory as to be heavenly -- truly one of the best meals I've had in... More

Great small restaurant with no English accents. Typically French food and good but limited selection of wines. I had soup followed by boudin blanc - both nicely presented but a little on the creamy side. Service is friendly and efficient.

Cycled across town from the 8th ARR on the Paris city bikes with my parents to this wonderful quaint little french restaurant. The service was excellent, the food brilliant, and wine was great too. Will be sure to visit again next I'm in Paris.

We were there between Christmas and the New Years Eve. The staff was very kind and swift, the house wine very good, and the plates we tried delicious: especially pate de foie, a smoked mackerel, and a plate based on coquille Saint-Jacques. Prices could be better, however.

When you first get in to this place you can be a bit thrown by the odd fusion dynamic and preference for offal-based food! Look beyond the service, though, and the place does brilliant seafood, often in lovely soups, at a very reasonable price and with some fantastic desserts. It gets pretty busy, and I am not surprised! On the... More

Been accustomed to Asian centric dishes , we've always found that most continental food tend to lack in taste. We decided to visit this place based on the reviews from fellow travellers . We had the pike dumpling, duck breast and scallops. With wine the bill came up to 80 euros . Don't get me wrong , the food was... More

We walked from the Seine to the end of Rue Monge looking Au Bon Coin. It was more than worth the trip. The quenelle was light and wonderful. My wife ordered Pate de Canard and Souris d'agneau. The lamb shank and pate were just "devine". I ordered my favorite, Ris de Veau which were the best I ever had.

Excellent food and service. If you are looking for typical French cuisine in typical French environment, this is the place. I ate here with my wife on a short trip to Paris.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
