Reasonable restaurants on or close to Ile st Louis

We'll be staying at Rue des Deux Pontes. Please recommend restaurants nearby for those evening that we would not like to venture far. Budget max 35 Euro.

  1. With wine & coffee or just food?

    How about:
    Le Pre Verre
    8 rue Thenard, 5th (Metro: Cluny La Sorbonne)
    Closed Sunday and Monday lunch
    Lunch menu 13 €, dinner 26 €.

    Le Reminet
    3, rue des Grands-Degres, 5th (Metro : St Michel, Maubert-Mutualite)
    T :
    Open 7/7
    Lunch menu 13.50 €, dinner a la carte 40-60 €.

    1. Le Caveau de L'Isles is nearby and has a prix-fixe menu at around 25 euros; it's fine, but you can do better if your willing to travel out of this high rent area.

      1. Or get some crepes in rue Saint Louis-en l'Isle. Or a croque monsieur at the brasserie at the corner of Pont Louis-Philippe.

        1. One of my favorite restaurants is just steps from there, and way under budget (well, I guess it depends how much you drink). La Reserve de Quasimodo is a cave a vins on the Ile de la Cite just across the bridge at Hotel de Ville (the Pont d'Arcole). They serve excellent tartines (foie gras and apple; potato, st nectaire cheese, and magret; etc), salads, cooked dishes, and a meat-and-wine fondu. You can pick your wine from their cave and the mark-up (droit de bouchon) is only 6 euro. It's an incredible deal and a really fun place. Very old building. Bathrooms are cool too.

          1. Thank you everyone - it seems we have a few options now!
