    Went on a Friday when they only have smaller plates more tapas-like. Doesnt matter, the food is delicious and its so genuin. Welcoming to both tourists and locals. Have been One more time since then and it was as good then too. If you're staying near jardin Luxembourg, don't miss this place! It's worth a visit.

    This place was already starting to fill up at noon on a Monday, and was buzzing by the time we left. It does what it does extremely well; a small but comprehensive menu offering a decent variety of French dishes, all given a slight modern twist. My husband's terrine and roti de veau were delicious, as were the gazpacho and saucisson rôti with white peas that I ordered. We were having such a good time that we each ordered a portion of the cherry clafoutis for pudding - excellent. We shared a carafe of côte du Rhône which was really good (I'm normally a bit dubious about "natural wines", having had a few bad examples.). Service was perfectly amiable, if ever so slightly hipster. As our hotel was just around the corner, this was a real find, and we'd definitely eat there again - it's as far from being a Parisian Tourist Trap as you could hope. Bear in mind that it's only open during the week, but do seek it out.

    We went to this cafe for lunch in late June & returned for dinner on our last night in Paris. Worth booking for dinner, as it's pretty small. We were early for lunch so got a table on the terrace. really good people watching facing the little square. Seems to be a fairly local place; the waiter was charming and spoke very little english but our french was good enough to converse and read the french menu. Fish rillettes were spectacular! My daughter had the mozzarella with almonds and eggplant and loved it so much she had it again the evening we returned. The menu is small and well considered; modern, simple french food, respecting ingredients and flavours without too much mucking about! I had a very nice glass of rose with my lunch and 2 very good Kir's with my dinner. Great convivial atmosphere and plenty of people stopping by for a glass of wine on their way home.

    An adorable place across from a small square. We sat outside and enjoyed great service, delicious small plates (we got 3 that was enough for the two of us), and wine. The flavors were inspired making this one of the best meals we had.

    We went with some local family friends who said this was their favorite place and we could see why! Great local wine selection and fresh food.

    This lovely restaurant was recommended to me by a French friend, back at home in Fremantle. What a delicious meal & delightful place to enjoy our last evening in Paris. We made a reservation ahead of time, probably a good idea as the place is fairly small. The flavours of the dishes was excellent & we enjoyed a bottle of sparkling (not champagne!) with the name Mosquito! The restaurant is only open Monday- Friday. Can thoroughly recommend, especially as it is located near the University area (behind the Pantheon) a bit away from the main touristy areas which also adds to the appeal of this place.

    It's awesome place but the service was rude and a little pretentious. We brought our toddler, who was really well behaved and they were less then happy about it.

    We stumbled across this place after visiting the Marie Curie museum and wow what a lunch. It was pricey - 73Euro for two courses, coffee and wine but it was worth it. Pork with pea salad and a sausage with a lentil salad were our two dishes. Superbly simple but done well. Desserts where cherry clafoutis and chocolate pot au creme - both simple but done very well also. Good selection of high quality wines and some beers on tap. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. If I am lucky enough to visit Paris again I will seek it out! Service was efficient, beautiful restaurant inside and out, overlooking a shady square and beautiful Parisienne buildings.

    This was a great find just minutes from the Pantheon and near the Sorbonne, which likely explains why it appears to be a popular student meeting place. They have a good wine list to select from and the menu is written on a blackboard featuring seasonal items. It's a fun place to go for dinner or just for drinks and some snacks as they have a good selection of lighter dishes to share. It was very busy but with a good vibe of happy customers, many of them locals. The staff were helpful in explaining the menu and the service good. Prices were reasonable.

    This restaurant was directly behind our hotel and we gave it a try our first night in Paris. We were the only English speaking people in the packed cafe, the waiter spoke broken English at best, and all the menus were only in French. It was perfect. I got the duck which was wonderful and my picky wife got the beef stew which she loved. This place couldn't be any less touristy. A quintessential cafe in Paris.

    We used to live in the neighborhood, and that's how we discovered this place. Once again it was superb in the funky-little-bistro category. I had oysters to start and then duck. Both were succulent. It's a wine bar, so there's always something new to try. I only wish this cafe was in my neighborhood as it once was.

    Our first night in Paris, and we found this thanks to a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. So glad we did. The waiter was super helpful, and both food and wine were delicious (if a little pricier than expected). The decor was chic and contemporary, and you know you are onto a good thing when most of the other diners appeared to be locals. We'll definitely return if we are in this neck of the woods again.

    Unfortunately we didn't find this cafe until our last day in Paris, actually it was recommended by a charming young gentleman in a nearby wine shop (who also recommended a delicious bottle of wine!). We enjoyed a delicious lunch from the blackboard menu (in French) terrine, sausages ... And the most delicious pear tart for dessert. Reasonable prices and pleasant warm ambience on a very cold day.

    Location is very nice in a quiet tree-lined street - a lay-by actually- behind the Pantheon, albeit next to a quite busy area of the V arrondissement. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, customer service good for a busy parisian bistro, food nice, good choice of starters, a few very good main dishes. Good wine list. Very few tourists.Totally worth it if you are staying in the area.

    My second time here and I like it the same. Good food, terrific ambience and very friendly service. It's the quintessential French bistro without the tourists. Prices are fair. It's one of a few places I try to go to every time I'm in Paris.

    Great typical French place for lunch. Nicely cramped with lots of fabulous French people enjoying great French lunch. Few tourists. Passes all my tests. And fantastic value for money.

    We discovered this delightful cafe in September and came back in October. The food, wine, and staff are all wonderfully classically, Paris. Our next trip is in February - we're making our reservations now!

    Nice atmosphere, good wine, reasonable food but the service could be (much) more courteous. Never mind, there are plenty of brasseries just around the corner.

    Last day in Paris and 1.30pm. All eateries full and a couple of places had run out of food. We stumbled across this restaurant which you could say "jagged it!". Waiter spoke English (with the requisite accent) and made an effort to find us a table. A very french menu which was fully explained with full Parisienne gusto and enthusiasm. Both ordered the quiche and a glass of wine each. The food arrived quickly and beautifully presented on the plate. A fab last Paris experience. About 20 euros a head which is pretty good for Paris.

    Wonderful spot for afternoon glass of wine with pate. Friendly service, eclectic atmosphere, near the institutes so numerous academics, and other interesting fellow customers. Outstanding choices for wine, typically inexpensive. Highly recommended!
