Service was very lovely. We ate the cheeseburger- we asked for "medium" but it was a little dry. The vegan was nice.

Great food, good happy hour drinks. Come for the burgers which are a classic here in Paris. The waitress was not all that well informed of the menu, but very nice and smiley. A Paris classic.

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

I would travel to Paris a few times a year in the 80's & 90's...and have lunch...After being on the road a month, I longed for a very American meal! Although I still get to Paris, haven't spent time near Les Halles...Do they still have the best banana cream pie??? I don't know if their quality has held up, but I remember the hamburger was better than Ralphs...???
