The numerous reviews kindly posted on the internet by our customers attest to the attention our waiters pay to our guests as well as their politeness and care in providing service. This quality of service, which is unfortunately not found everywhere in Paris, is perhaps rooted in the history of the establishment, whose roots go back to the post-revolutionary period.

Founded in 1812 at 23 rue de Buci, it was transferred to Place St-Germain-des-Prés in 1873 to expand. The two statues that adorn the room today still bear witness to this era. In fact, it is these two statues that gave its name to the establishment, the “magots” in question being the Chinese figurines that first gave its name to a novelty store. In 1885, the store was replaced by a liquor store that kept the same name. Verlaine, Rimbaud and Mallarmé, among others, got used to meet there. The establishment then began to play an important role in Parisian cultural life, before affirming its literary vocation in 1933 with the creation of the Prix des Deux Magots.

The place has developed over time its restaurant menu, and has created a fine reputation thanks to a cuisine centered around the essentials of French gastronomy. Authentic, unpretentious cuisine prepared with love, with great attention paid to the quality and seasonality of the products.
