Paris Travel Planner   Lou Pescadou Restaurant, Paris
A small restaurant near the Marché Saint-Germain, Lou Pescadou offers traditional French fare in a cozy setting.




Lou Pescadou is a small restaurant in the Saint-Sulpice/Saint-Germain area of the 6th arrondissement, a part of Paris that has many restaurants.

We went on a rainy night so could not take advantage of the outdoor seating, but we found ourselves in a cozy corner of this small but lively restaurant. The service was swift and pleasant.

The menu tended to traditional French food, as did our choices: magret de canard (duck breast) and tiny lamb chops. Both dishes were excellent. The lamb chops were accompanied by delicious scalloped potatoes, while roasted red potatoes and salad came with the duck.

We drank house wine by the glass and didn't have a starter, just the main course. But I couldn't resist ordering a clafoutis for dessert. Clafoutis is a French country dessert from the Limousin region of Southwest France. Traditionally it's made with cherries (often with the pits still in) and a batter similar to crepes. It's sort of a cake, but moister and less formal. Since it was cherry season, lots of places were serving clafoutis, and we enjoyed it. You can also make clafoutis with apples or other fruits.

Eating only a main dish and house wine and a shared dessert, two of us enjoyed dinner for a reasonable 48.

We returned for lunch in 2012 and were not disappointed. Friendly, interesting menu, very good food and service, and reasonable prices.
