    We had a lovely St. Valentin's dinner at L'Ilot Vache. Everything was good, the service was friendly and attentive. This was our third or fourth visit and we were very pleased with this charming restaurant.

    We come to Paris from the US at least once a year and have tried several of the most recommended restaurants over the past 20 years, including some of the most famous, the most highly rated on the web, as well as bistros recommended by several others. For the past 4 years we’ve eaten here at least once per stay, and just introduced it to our daughter and granddaughter. Superb meal in a quiet old neighborhood, exceptional decor, not crowded (but it is February). And outstanding food at a price much lower than one would anticipate for the quality. Bon

    The Escargot, Lamb Shank and Chocolate Mousse were the best I ever had. Great food, great service, will definitely be back.

    We really enjoyed the food and service. We were sat promptly and it was probably the best service we had in Paris. It's a really cozy place and being on the corner with large windows gave it a great overall atmosphere. The food was delicious (especially the beef bourguignon). Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Paris!

    Disappointing - I’ve been to this restaurant 4 times over the past decade, but this time my beef in boeuf bourgignon was fatty and chewy with bristle. The sauce was still tasty, but I couldn’t eat most of the meat. They were out of the dessert we most wanted to try, too.

    Great French food. We each had the Prix Fix dinner and it was excellent. The enter was so generous we should have split the cheeses course and we did split the desert. Perfect choice for our last dinner in Paris. Then a walk past the great Notre Dame on our way back to the hotel.

    Quaint, quiet restaurant with friendly and attentive service and wonderful ambiance. Food was good but sauce on salmon could have been improved and the duck was a little overcooked. Had "formula" meal which was a good value. Multiple selections available.

    This is a charming intimate restaurant that appears to cater to tourists. My wife and I try to eat there each time we visit Paris. The chocolate mousse is superb!

    Great food (had the salmon), excellent service, cozy, charming restaurant. Best chocolate mousse I’ve ever had....anywhere! If they removed the tall wire flower holder from between the tables it would be even better as it was just a bit of a nuisance while talking. But a very minor detail. Definitely recommend this place.

    You must go if you are in the area. Charming welcoming team, excellent traditional French cuisine. Not good for light evening meal though... but I do not regret it even a bit!

    L'Ilot Vache is a very good restaurant in a great place. We have been coming here for many years and the food is always good and the fact that they often have Ile Flotante and pan fried Froie Gras is a super plus!
