Nice place with good Italian food. Pizza good as well. Friendly service and reasonable prices. Close to Notre Dame and to many other small restaurants. Very, very convenient. In Europe Saint Severin Hotel.

This is so weird, but as you get older, having done all of the Michelin restaurants and staying at all the Palaces - on occasions, you just simply want to return to the older days as student when you would eat anything cheap. On this particular evening, we decided to just stroll the general area to find cheap eats -... More

Nelly R, Gérant at Rim Cafe, responded to this review

Dear Dom, We deeply thank you for your lovely post. We are aware that the Saint Michel area does suffer from a bad image when it comes to restaurants. We took over the business one year ago and therefore decided to differentiate from our neighbours by offering fresh, good, well presented food at a decent price. On top of that... More

The waiter we had worked very hard but simply put he had too many tables to cover. There were 2 guys sitting people but not enough waiters to handle a busy Saturday night. Pizza was a 3.5/5, the beer was cold, the waiter was a 4.75/5. the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote!

As guests of the Hotel Europe St Severin next door we received a 20% discount to eat at their restaurant the Cafe (Trattoria) Rim. To my surprise, my husband and I found ourselves doing just that. At the end of a day's sightseeing in a 35 degree heatwave, we were happy to be refreshed at happy hour, followed by tasty... More

It was a dark and stormy night and this was a great place to get dry and enjoy pizza after a long day at the Louvre. The pizza crust was thin, the sauce was tasty and the cheese was creamy.
