As an escargot lover, the 24 carat one definitely disappoints you. However, the citrus salad is yummy. So don't expect you will get what you desire the most.

I visited this place several years ago when I was in Paris so I was keen to see if it was still the same. While they do have a set menu, we opted for the whole duck a'lorange which is served in two servings (they...More

We walked in without a reservation and were seated right away. It was exactly what we had hoped - several interesting choices of escargot, easily the best we had in Paris.

Probably the biggest snails we had in town but not the best. I guess the hype was due to a lot of instagram photos of tourists. You can try the traditional snails but don't go for the truffle.

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
