The 10 Best Restaurants in The Latin Quarter, Paris

The 10 Best Restaurants in The Latin Quarter, Paris

Because Paris is synonymous with fine dining, we’ve put together our shortlist of the best restaurants you’ll find in the Latin Quarter – other districts coming soon – if you want to treat yourselves to an unforgettable dinner. From contemporary creations to traditional cuisine, these six restaurants are all mouth-wateringly special…

La Truffiere
4 Rue Blainville, 75005

A gastronomic restaurant – modern and creative, with a carefully-chosen menu by chef Jean Christophe Rizet. Excellent service, beautifully-presented food, a penchant for truffle (not unexpected, given the name), and a cheese plate that will blow your mind.

Le Lutin dans le jardin
15 Rue Gît-le-Cœur, 75006

A small, cozy restaurant that specializes in regional cuisine. It’s an excellent choice for visitors who want to discover the very best of typically French cooking. If it’s on the menu, you have to try the foie gras. Plus, there’s currently an online deal on The Fork which gets you 50% off your dinner, excluding the set menu.

La Tour d’Argent
15 Quai de la Tournelle, 75005

With possibly the best view of Paris, this world-famous restaurant overlooking the river and Nôtre Dame also serves stunningly-delicious food and wine. People come to Paris just to eat here – so we cannot stress the importance of booking in advance, especially if you want to be by the window! A must-do for special occasions.

Sola
12 rue de l’Hotel Colbert, 75005

Fabulous French-Japanese fusion food at a great location, down a side road a few steps away from Nôtre Dame and the famous bookstore Shakespeare and Co. Prepare to lose control, as the chef, Yoshitake Hiroki, chooses your food for you! The service and quality have received rave reviews.

La Cuisine de Philippe
25 Rue Servandoni, 75006

Listed as Tripadvisor’s n°5 best restaurant in Paris, don’t take other people’s word for it, and treat yourself to a perfect dining experience in the presence of the charming eponymous owner. Intimate but not crowded, the restaurant is typically Parisian. Soufflé fans – this one’s for you.

Pouic-Pouic
9 Rue Lobineau, 75006

Exceptional quality of service in a city where waiters are often far more *brusque* than we are used to, Pouic Pouic is a gem of a restaurant located just off the busy and tourist-trap-ridden Boulevard Saint Germain, a reservation is essential but you might get lucky if you pop in for lunch. Good quality-price ratio, with a “surprise” 6-course menu at €50.
