La Fregate Restaurant Review

: La Frégate is on the left bank of the Seine, facing the southwest wing of the Louvre on the other side of the Pont Royal; it is also close to the Musée d’Orsay and at the tip of the Latin Quarter. A stroll in this historic area may lead you by this inviting brasserie. A nod to history: This precise location was that of the mansion of the real Marshal d’Artagnan who inspired the famous novel, The Three Musketeers. No surprise: In its traditional brasserie décor, La Frégate serves, almost nonstop, a traditional brasserie fare such as soupe à l’oignon, duck foie gras, sole meunière and escargots. They also offer a combo at €17,90 and a classically structured prix-fixe at €29,90, comprising onion soup or marinated herring, peppered steak flambé, veal blanquette à l’ancienne (traditional white sauce) or pan-cooked sea perch. To finish: apple pie, crème brûlée or chocolate mousse, house-prepared.
