My husband and I had a decadent lunch here last weekend. Fabulous food! We sat at the bar which I am glad we did as the room upstairs didn't have the same cozy feel. We shared a few too many things: duck terrine, lentils, asparagus...More

This is a small historic restaurant which has been given a new life by an American chef in Paris. The food is unabashedly traditional French. Limited choice of entrees, mains and deserts all well delivered. Everyone at the table appreciated all their dishes. You go...More

We had high expectations comming back to this cosy restaurant with a long history. But it was a disapointment to us. It is nothing in comparison to what it was 2 years ago. The food is nothing special and the service was a bit sloppy....More

The place is quaint and very parisian looking.... But the food is a joke. There has got to be some error in all previous reviews or there must have been a change in ownership and chef. We were overprices super basic bistrot food and the...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
