Dining recs in Latin Quarter

We will be in an apartment on the Rue Mouffetard for a week in April. We're with two kids, so not looking for michelin stars, but good bistros and ethnic. Any recommendations will be appreciated.

  1. Le Papilles at intersection of St. Jacques and Gay Lusac. Very kid friendly food, I would think.

    1. "Ethnic" as in native to France? There are lots of recommendations already on the board for the 5, 6 and 7eme.

      1. I agree with Mangeur, Papilles serves solid food, family style. Also close to Rue Mouffetard is Dans Les Landes (which I haven't yet tried), Des Vouges and Agrumes. For ethnic, there is AU P'tit Cahoua for decent Moroccan cuisine...just follow Mouffetard downhill until you reach Blvd. St. Marcel, take a left and it is about 2 blocks. there are also 2 decent brasseries at the bottom of the Mouffetard/St. Medard quarter; the rather upscale Marty and the more down to earth Canons des Gobelins, right at the Gobelins metro.

        1. We had a good lunch this summer at Le Reminet and saw that they were very accommodating to a couple with small children.

          1. Could you explain what you mean by ethnic? Which ethnic cuisine? After all, every cuisine is an ethnic cuisine for somebody.

              Just checked the trap and saw all of your answers. Thanks a lot. By ethnic I meant food not native to France, and particular to different ethnic groups -Moroccan, Vietnamese, etc. This is a common figure of speech in America.

                Dans Les Landes has great tapas, which kids and adults like. And it is very near you.
                Is Basque ethnic? :-)
