My sister is making her first trip Paris in late September and is staying in the 5th arr. Any of you have suggestions for good prix fixe menus she could try? She will eat just about anything.

Your sister is in luck, because some of the best prix fixe values in Paris are in the 5th, 3 off the top of my head include.

Le Pre Verre: this has always been one of my favorites for the price, and offers modern French cooking with an interesting use of spices. And the menu, the last time I was there, is only 26€ for 3-courses, which is a steal for what they offer.

8 rue Thénard, Paris 5th. Metro: Maubert-Mutualité

01 43 54 59 47

closed Sunday, Monday, 1 week at xmas, 2 weeks in August

Ribouldingue: A mostly offal menu, which might not please everyone but it is very well done, the menu is only 27€.

10 rue St Julien le Pauvre, Paris 5th, Metro: St Michel

01 46 33 98 80

closed Sunday and Monday, 2 weeks begining of August

Les Papilles: A wonderful neo-bistro serving a market-based menu with updated versions of French bistro cuisine. 4 course menu is 28.50, no choice, however.

30 rue Gay Lussac, 5th, metro: Luxembourg or Cluny la Sorbonne

01 43 25 20 79

closed sundays and 3 weeks in August

Edited to add addresses (sorry Dave!)

Thank you Felice,

looking at the menu for Le Pre Verre, they also have an excellently priced lunch. I will give these names to my sister.

We love Ma Bourgogne but I can't remember if they offer menu. I love the ham hock in lima beans, some other salt meat with lentils--I have had them both several times. The setting under the arcade cannot be beat!

Le Paris has a 50eur lunch menu including drinks that gives access to all regular ALC items -- great value for classy food and setting, methinks -- luxury at bistrot prices.

And of course Chez l'Ami Jean always 32 eur menu carte lunch and dinner, just like La Régalade -- best bistronomiques in town, imo.

Julot, Do you have address of Le Paris? I'm already collecting possibilities for our next trip to Paris. We just booked frequent flier tickets for May 2009! Can't wait. We LOVED La Regalade and will definitely get to Chez l'Ami Jean this next time.

Wanted to thank you for mentioning La Folle Avoine. Had a lovely dinner there last night, starting with a sesame shrimp with gaspacho and salad, followed by grilled cuttlefish and roasted artichokes. The fraicheur de fruits (I think), that was served afterwards, included fruit salad and a green apple sorbet. But the highlight at our table was their raspberry tart, filled with raspberries and raspberry sorbet, and topped with freshly baked meringue.

It was a tremendous deal for 30 Euros, the service was friendly and the atmosphere was cozy. Currently, the drinks are not included in the prix fixe at dinner time, but they are included at lunch iirc.
