    What a fine restaurant, from the first friendly greeting to clothe final bite of dessert. This is a small, modest-looking restaurant, but the food is wonderful. The duck breast is especially good— the orange sauce is the best I have ever tasted. Reasonably priced wine, and terrific desserts. We had a wonderful combination of morello cherries in a sweet and boozy sauce, with vanilla ice create, cherry sorbet, and whipped cream— the perfect finish to a great meal.

    A fantastic find on Ile Saint-Louis. We must have walked past this lovely little restaurant numerous times but from now on we will be calling in (if only for ice-cream). We visited for an early New Years Eve dinner and the service and food was outstanding. My favourite French onion soup yet. All courses were delicious and very well priced. You won't be disappointed.

    Wonderful French food, simple but perfect. The French onion soup was the best I’ve had, the duck was delicious with a fantastic sauce. No view, but quiet and lovely.

    We felt immediately integrated into the family, really a very welcoming atmosphere of course mainly created by the owner.

    we sat outside and had a lovely meal. the lamb shank was really good. duck orange not bad either. not excited about the prime rib. as per other reviews, the french onion soup was amazing! the smoked salmon starter was a huge portion with 4 pieces of toast. we also loved the little bowls of mashed potatoes that came with our meal. the server was very pleasant!

About the restaurant

À DEUX PAS DE NOTRE-DAME – Et si on faisait une pause à l’Île Saint-Louis ? Difficile de faire plus central, plus hors du temps et plus romantique, n’est-ce pas ? C’est ici que Pain d'Épices dresse le couvert, légèrement à l'écart des hordes de touristes.

CLIENTÈLE LOCALE - Ceci est une première curiosité et un bon signe : les gens du quartier y ont leurs habitudes... On y trouve toujours un plat du jour généreux, une belle viande en sauce, un filet de bar, etc.

SALON DE THÉ DÈS 15H - Pain d'Épices est un endroit charmant pour déjeuner mais aussi pour prendre le thé l'après-midi. Le décor s'y prête si bien ! Et les glaces de Berthillon sont incontournables.
