Restaurant Desvogues is a timeless French restaurant where time hasn’t destroyed tradition Simply excellent traditional French cuisine in simple homely surroundings; quirky in its simplicity but not in the quality of its food or service (Annie was brilliant) ....á plus tard Desvogues et Merci bien

What a charming find this was. Only a few steps from our hotel, I admit I selected it for its location, but it more than met my expectations. It is only a small restaurant, so I imagine a booking would be worthwhile, and the owners...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
