This café/restaurant is situated on the banks of the 5th arrondissement of Paris, in the heart of the Latin Quarter just opposite Notre Dame, whose view can be enjoyed from the fantastic terrace. You?d be forgiven for mistaking it as one of those restaurants for tourists, where the dishes are bad and the bill worse ? it would make perfect sense, give its location (almost right next to the Notre Dame).

BUT what a wonderful surprise to arrive in this restaurant/coffee-shop which also does brunch: very clearly a cut above the rest, a warm welcome, smiling and very professional (and no pressure to have a starter), the dishes (traditional) are delicious (with notable effort put into presentation!). I tried the tuna provincial style, cooked to perfection with a portion of really good Gratin Dauphinois (and that?s rare) good choice of wine and the bill is fair, especially for the area (dishes range from 12 to 17 Euros in price).

Favorite Dish: The dish of the day very interesting.
