About the restaurant Bouillon Racine

Restaurant Bouillon Racine: over 100 years of history in the heart of Paris.

Welcome to the Bouillon Racine, famous "soup" (ancestor of Parisian brasseries) Art Nouveau created in 1906 by the brothers Chartier entreQuartier Latin, Odeon and St. Michel.

Now historical monument, the Bouillon Racine perpetuates the unique atmosphere of Paris of the 1900s in a beautiful setting made of fretted woodwork, beveled mirrors, opaline and glass noodles.

In the kitchens the chef Alexandre Belthoise offers flavors subtly playing cuisine Française between current and typical traditional dishes.

This restaurant was amazing. The food was divine - flavourful and well priced. I have had to rate it lower due to the rude waitress we had. We thought it a one off until everything was plonked down on the table with an, almost, disdain for our existence. Without her, it would have been five stars all the way. Don’t let this experience turn you off, even if you get her, just ignore her and enjoy the amazing French food.

All in all disappointing. Decor is lovely and deserves better. Starters were mediocre with over-cooked tuna and flavorless tomatoes. Mains were the real disappointment. Spare ribs were bland and filled with grease. Maigret had flavor but was so tough it could hardly be cut. Dessert was ok, but to write home about. Wine though was good and fairly priced. Service, unfortunately, was almost nonexistent.The place is packed though so the owners and staff must know something that we don’t know.

Terrible service, staff couldn't cope with number of diners;(restaurant was only half full). Waited 25 minutes for menus, after 50 minutes still no drinks/ water brought out to table, our party of 4 simply left after bringing how bad the service was to the managers attention (he blamed the waitress although he did nothing to help). Can't comment on the food as we didn't get the opportunity to eat it!

The setting was very stylish. Made you feel you you were about to have a special experience.
Unfortunately we did in a bad way. The service was really bad (although the waitress was very kind and helpful) they were understaffed and the food was not in comparison to what we paid. With 2 adult and a 10 year old we paid 125€.
We have had much better meals in Paris for almost half the price.

We will not return here and I wouldn’t recommend anYbody to eat here.

Very good place for welcoming
guests from abroad, biz lunch and romantic dinner.
I tried pork ribs and it was one of the best ribs I tried.
Really recommend the restaurant if you'd like to find a good French restaurant with a reasonable price.

We really enjoyed the food quality. The only issue we had was that when we asked the waitress if gratitude was already included in the price, she said no so we added extra 10% as tips but later we found out it was indeed included in the price. This should be made clear to the patrons.
Restaurant
Dear Anne,

Thank you for your good comment about your dinner at Bouillon Racine !
Regarding your remark about the tips, this misunderstood is certainly due to a lack of comprehension. Moreover, our menu mentionned that service is already included on our prices.
Best regards

This is definitely a well known restaurant though seemingly older tourists-targeted. A reservation is a must. That said, the food is ok while the atmosphere is very classical French (mirrors, gold, white linen, etc.), which is probably most appealing to those coming to France on holiday. The restaurant is very busy and service is rushed and somewhat impersonal. At one point a wait staff leaned into the table to pour wine while getting his jacket flutter about touching my main course. I was not impressed. It is the same waiter who spilled a whole glass of newly poured wine all over the table. Not once did he offer to replace the glass of wine. We were with guests so did not want to make a scene in front of them. I was most unimpressed with the service of this wait staff who by the look was neither young nor inexperienced. Based on this service and the 'ok' food, I am not sure I would come back.

If you want to have a “Midnight in Paris” meal, this is the place. A jewel box of a restaurant with a traditional menu and interesting wine list, it is my fact restaurant in Paris. Try the crepe brûlée.

The food and the sauces were excellent, for both my duck and my wife’s filet. However, to have the special on the menu no longer available at 8:00 pm was absurd. There were also limitations on the sides you cold order with the main course, as well as no hot soup choice.
Restaurant
Dear Randy,

Thank you for the time you took to share your experience at Bouillon Racine.
We are pleased to read that you overall enjoyed your meal.
Regarding your comment about the dish of day, it is served since lunch, and following its success, it may not be available for dinner... Moreover, and concerning sides of our main courses : could you be more precise ? Do you ask to change ?
For the hot soup, temperatures are still high on that time and we provide indeed fresh soups to our clients.
We hope to welcome you again in the future at Bouillon Racine
Best regards

We had a lovely lunch at Bouillon Racine. The service was perfect we felt as if we had all the attention of the waiter to ourselves, he was helpful, pleasant, a gem. Our food was very good, the dessert delicious and the wine - well how can you go wrong with Chablis. We picked this place for its history and it did not disappoint. Thank you Bouillon Racine.
