Whenever I am in Paris, this is a must stop for lunch. This is the restaurant of the Hotel Relais Saint Germain. It is reasonably priced, they have an extensive brasserie style menu and the quality of the dishes is outstanding. This is very popular among locals and reservations are not taken for lunch. So if you want to get a table, it’s better to be very early.
They open for lunch at 12:00pm. Last time I was there in September of this year, we arrived at 11:30 am and there were already a few people waiting in line. If you are not a smoker, I recommend you ask for a table inside. Since all the tables are pretty small and close to each other, it is not pleasant to breathe someone else’s smoke while you are enjoying your meal.
For dinner they offer a fixed menu and you have to make a reservation months in advance. The restaurant is a two minute walk from the Odéon metro stop.
