Restaurant recommendations in the sixth / seventh arrondissements?

Can anyone recommend a good, mid-budget restaurant in the Latin Quarter / St Germain? I'm going to be staying there for a few days next week - solo, so no romantic-type places please! I'm also looking for somewhere that's not touristy. Any kind of cuisine, but preferably French (since this is France, after all.....)

Here are six of my favorites:

Chez Les Anges, Boulevard de la Tour-Maubourg  7th, Tel 01 47 05 89 86, Metro: La Tour-Maubourg, Closed Saturday and Sunday; great 3-course menu with choices 35€; excellent 5-course tasting menu surprise 55€; A La Carte 60-80€.  If you stick to the 35€  menu, it's a good deal. There is a nice bar in the middle of the restaurant where you can eat as a single

Le Clos Des Gourmets, 16 Avenue Rapp, 7th, Tel. 01 45 51 75 61, Fax 01 47 05 74 20, Metro: Ecole Militaire, Lunch Menu- 3 courses 30€; Dinner Menus 34€ and 38€; Closed Sun. & Mon., Excellent food.  Some items carry a supplement over the menu price.  Beautiful setting with great food and good service.  Although the tables are a bit close together, you won’t notice once you sit down.  A bargain for the quality.

La Bastide Odéon, 7 Rue Corneille, 6th, Tel 01 43 26 03 65, Metro: Odeon, A/C.  Bistro serving very good food inspired by the South of France.  Lunch- 2 courses 20€ and 3 courses 26€; Dinner- 2 courses 30€ and 3 courses 37€. Reasonably priced wine list;  Great quality/price ratio. 

Fish La Boissonnerie, 69 Rue de Seine, 6th, Mabillon or Odeon Metro.  Wine bar/ restaurant owned by a Cuban-American and a New Zealander.  Lunch 13€ and 27€- Dinner Menu 35€.  Good, well-priced wines by the glass or bottle.

Cosi, 54 Rue de Seine, 6th, Odeon Metro, no cards, Great sandwiches on freshly made bread from the wood oven, Salads, Soups.  Take them out or eat upstairs to the sounds of opera music. (Same owners and across the street from Fish- La Boissonnerie.)

Le Petit Cler, 29 Rue Cler, 7th, Tel. 01 45 50 17 50, Rue Cler Market area; Breakfast, lunch or light dinner; great cheeses from Marie-Anne Cantin; eggs; sandwiches; Plats du jour;

Bon appétit.

L'Avant-Comptoir and Cuisine de Bar are great lunch options. For dinner, Relais de l'Entrecôte Saint Germain is touristy but it's incredible steak frites. Also Fish La Boissonnerie in the 6th or La Crêperie de Josselin in Montparnasse.

Hey Molly! I like Cojean Sandwiches (Cojean) a lot. It's a fresh fast food place, where you can grab delicious salads, quiches, soups & sandwiches, relatively cheap and very Parisian. If you're in the Latin area, try the one located 42, Boulevard Raspail (didn't work out with the map). If you're on a budget kind of meal, you can grab fresh food from Monoprix (they have a variety of very good products), and sit in a square to feel the local atmosphere (I like the one at Église Saint-Germain-des-Prés). As a desert, If you're a foodie, go get some "macarons" at Pierre Hermé Paris there are terrific!! Far much better than La Durée, they're close to being exceptional :) "Chocolat au lait & fruit de la passion" (milk chocolate+passion fruit) is my favorite! Have fun :)

Hey Molly,

Even though I haven't been myself, a very good friend of mine and his girlfriend are very usually going to La Fourmi Ailée. It is in the 5th but not far from the 6th. From what he told me, it's very good French cuisine at very reasonables prices. I don't believe this restaurant to be touristy.

Another place you can check are the steets Guisarde and Princess. They are packed with bars and restaurants. It's in the middle of the 6th. There are a few tourists but they are everywhere in Paris anyway ;)

Hope that helps!

Robert et Louise is a family owned restaurant in Quartier Du Marais not in your location but worth the trip. go for the Cotes de boeuf. 

If french is not a must and you like a hearty vietnamese beef soup the Pho Banh Cuon 14 is as authentic and delicious as a Pho can get!

Ok and to answer your question, Au petit Sud Ouest in 7e if you're into everything Foie Gras!

The options are endless! Paris is foodie heaven! A good recommendation is "La Petite Chaise", Blvd de Grenelle near Raspail, between the 6th and the 7th. It's not expensive and is historically interesting, being the oldest restaurant in Paris, ie it has always been a restaurant since 1648!
