I highly recommend Aux Charpentiers at 10 rue Mabillon. It was very cute inside, the service was extremely friendly, and was really a great deal for how good it was. I had the prix fixe menu for 26 euros, from which I chose a starter of marinated white anchovies on top of warm chunks of yellow potatoes dressed in olive oil and chives, a main course of pig's foot (yes, you can't really tell in the picture, but I'm wrestling intently with a gargantuan breaded foot-- garnished by a tiny leaf of parsley), and a baba au rhum which was not bad. We shared a perfectly fine 19 euro bottle of I forget which Gascony red, and had a very nice time.
