    The restaurant that chefs visit in Paris. Wonderful food. Try the beef cheek, calamari stuffed with rice, steak, or cochon de lait braise. Tip: if you don't want to wait go at an awkward time like 4.

    I absolutely enjoyed this meal. We had the lamb shank and octopus couscous. It is really crowded, so call them for a booking preferably. We skimmed in for lunch without a booking but we were lucky.

    Three words: cochon au lait. Amazing suckling pig on a bed of lentils, absolutely exploding with flavour. Vegetable salad to start is a good option, although the specials are solid too.

    The stuffed calamari with orzo and squid ink is the best squid I've ever had in my life. Be sure to order it to experience the most tender yet flavorful squid ever.

    Yves Camdeborde’s beloved bistro, once neo and now classic. Book months in advance for weeknight, no-choice dinner, or just queue up at lunch or weekends for the so-called “brasserie menu”.

    There is a reason why this is the toughest table right now in Paris: the food is exquisite. Brilliant for lunch and wonderful for dinner, the food is simple and sublime. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Had to spend some time outside waiting for a table to get available. But it was worth it. The food, the ambiance, everything was great. Strongly recommended.

    Everything was stunning and delicious. Great French cuisine. Amazing carte des vins. It s expensive for the service you get. Waitresses can't manage many customers. You need to line to get there.

    One of the best meals I've ever had. Different menu every night. Reservation is a must through the hotel. Service was flawless and impeccable. This is French dining at its finest.

    Recommended by anthony bourdain. famous dishes include Salade nicoise, Foie Gras & Toast de Pain, and beef cheek. You should order their Apple Tart as dessert, you won't regret it

    During the week they take reservations pricey tasting menu, but on the weekends (starting Friday at lunch), they don't take reservations. Refined cafe/bistro fare, and is a pretty good value.

    A sandwich worthy of the name Monsieur. While peasants overburden their sandwiches with too much cheese, Le Comptoir finely toasts their bread, adds just enough creamy cheese and hits the spot.

    Come at just before 12:00 for lunch and get a table you want. Otherwise you'll be waiting on the street. Lobster bisque is good.

    Had to try the Cochin du Lait, was very good. Scallop salad was amazing. Sat outside, steady line throughout the afternoon.

    Great food just a block away from Luxembourg gardens. Get the terrine, croque, and whatever seafood/fish specials they have - you really can't go wrong.

    The calamari is great! I don't speak much French so wasn't sure what I was getting into but was pleasantly surprised to see it come stuffed with risotto. Delicious.

    Try the Carre D'agneau Roti - rack of lamb with some suuuuper sweet peppers! after a 2 hr wait (YES, 2 HOURS!) i think everyone had a great meal...superior ingredients wins again

    Yves is our favourite chef in Paris! In addition of being the "father of bistronomy" (bistro/gastronomy) he is adorable and is as generous as its cuisine. Brasserie for lunch and gastro for dinner.

    Suckling pig w lentils... Also ask for butter with your bread. It comes marbled and tastes great.

    Amazing food. Overall meats are very good but daube is a must have. Go there for early dinner (~7pm) to avoid long lines.

    Getting a dinner reservation at this tiny, quintessential bistro in St Germain is nigh on impossible: it gets booked solid several months in advance. But no reservations are required at lunch.

    Bistro atmosphere, top class food, and a great wine list. Hard to get a table because of no reservations so come early!

    I tried the beef cheeks and loved it. Service is fast enough but don't expect friendliness. Not spacious at all. You should finish with a desert and espresso. A little overpriced.

    One of the best meals I've experienced - in general. Worth the wait if you're in Saint Germain. And that's a promise.

    Weekend lunch time in August barley had a line. If you can't make it at noon come around 1:30 because they turn the tables fast.

    Coffee creme brûlée was nice with rich coffee flavor. Starters we had were good, but plats were mediocre. Waiter was a bit rude and elbowed us while putting down food without apologizing.

    Lobster bisque - not worth it, tastes diluted. Grilled octopus- very tasty, fresh
