    It was easy take a bus from st Germain right up to the 14th. We were warmly welcomed and they were flexible about dividing a delicious entree of St Jacques and cèpes into 2 for a starter, followed by exotic grouse. Vaut le détour.

    Our last night in Paris, a perfect setting and meal enjoyed at La Grande Ourse. Welcome was very friendly, setting is simple and quiet, food was excellent and service/timing was just right. Will keep in mind for future visits, a great find and value in this part of Paris.

    Wonderful meal! Well prepared and beautifully presented cuisine! Everything was absolutely delicious! This is a total Parisian experience in a small intimate setting with amazing food and French pride. We loved it! Highly recommend if you want to get away from the hustle bustle of heart of Paris and feel the essence of this beautiful historic city.

    La Grande Ourse is a very nice, quiet neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and service. We were greeted cordially and the owner graciously switched to English (even though we really should speak French) to show us the evening’s choices. We had a delicious oyster tartare and a beautiful foie gras plate to start, then sea bass and a perfectly cooked rack of lamb. We conversed with the owner in English and French (she had spent time in Baltimore) and were completely at home. Highly recommended.

    After experiencing so many bad meals in Paris, we finally found the one! Small, but charming, excellent three course meal, at a reasonable price! Definitely a keeper, we highly recommend them!
