In the Netflix show Emily in Paris, the chef Gabriel who is also Emily’s neighbor and love interest, works at a restaurant called Les Deux Compère. Many scenes in Emily in Paris take place at Gabriel’s restaurant, from a lunch between Emily and Mindy, to a team dinner with Savoir, where Emily works.
In the show, Les Deux Compère is located at 18, Rue de Fossés Saint-Jacques, just down the street from Emily’s apartment, located at 1, Place de l’Estrapade in the Latin Quarter. Les Deux Compère is not a real restaurant, but the scenes are shot in a real Italian restaurant called Terra Nerra, which looks nearly exactly the same as in the show with the red awning. Terra Nerra has strong reviews on Tripadvisor, with one reviewer calling it Italian with a French twist. Next door to Les Deux Compère is the bakery Emily gets her first pain au chocolat in, called Boulangerie Moderne at 16, Rue de Fossés Saint-Jacques.
These spots are located just next to the Panthéon, a monument modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, where some of the most famous figures of French history are buried including Victor Hugo, Voltaire and Rousseau. The 5th arrondisement is in the Latin Quarter, a popular area on the Left Bank of Paris for students, historically a place for artists and creative types, and now quite bourgeois. It also has the feel of old Paris, with winding, cobblestone streets and pre-Haussmannian architecture, making it a romantic, compelling choice to live for those hoping to experience a vision of Paris that is often portrayed in film.
Additional restaurants used as filming locations in Emily in Paris include Cafe de L’homme atop the Musee de L’homme, La Maison Rose in Montmartre, and the iconic Cafe de Flore, also on the Left Bank.
