Fun place to eat, with amazing wines and carefully prepared food. My partner and I were directed to this restaurant when we couldn't get into a nearby popular eatery. What a great find. Such attentive service, mostly by the sommelier, whose knowledge and passion for...More

With a fantastically clean open kitchen and a variety of seating, this unpretentious place near the Louvre offers terrific, unusual food. The Mont Blanc dessert was especially delicious, but it was all far better than the price and location would suggest.

This was a strange visit. The food was not bad, but there was nothing particularly interesting or exceptional about it, and I wouldn't consider it good value given the price. The only memorable dish was a plate with several different varieties of heritage tomato. Comfort-wise...More

Go and run to this restaurant if you like healthy, delicious, and inventive but not arrogant food! You will receive a warm welcome and spend a great time in this restaurant with an open kitchen.

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
