(From : Hôtel de la Monnaie). To reach the final stop (if you don't intend to have dinner here - or lunch at weekends -, just continue straight up to Saint-Michel square), proceed along the embankment, but make a small detour through Dauphine street then, to the left, de Pont-de-Lodi street, before finding des Grands-Augustins street and the eponymous embankment.
This Spanish restaurant formerly located near Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre church has been highly praised during the past few years. Some even go to say that it's the best Spanish restaurant in the city.
It may well be justified : if prices are a bit high, food is excellent. Their paellas (here called "riz") are simply stunning. Try the "riz noir" for instance. Their tapas are also very good, and the design, while modern, is nevertheless warm - the little drawer where you can find your napkin and place setting is a nice idea, as well a the pocket-wrapped slice of bread.
We strongly advice to book ahead.
