10, rue Mabillon (6)
A low priced basic bistro across from the St. Germain market in a neighborhood of restaurants. Fairly large, with small, closely spaced tables, but a real chef with his wife in the front. Friendly, warm, welcoming. Avoid the basement room.
Good, basic, hearty, traditional. Not refined. Just what we wanted. Relatively extensive menu, including traditional daily plats du jour. Name the day and you name the plat, week after week, year after year.
Friendly, helpful, informal.
Lunch 19.5€ formula for two plats. Dinner 28€. Plus a la carte.
As of Fall, 2017, closed.
