We were staying in the Marais and booked Bofinger from the UK for our first night - an excellent experience. The art nouveau interior of the brasserie is fabulously elegant, the waiters were charming and the food was delicious. There are famous Alsace dishes to try (mostly involving sauerkraut) and heaped platters of seafood but there is much more on... More

We decided to have our evening meal at the Bofinger, after reading the menu and reviews, it was great value for money, Paris is quite expensive when eating out. But we generally found it not much dearer than the other restaurants we had eaten in the previous evenings, good quality ingredients, cooked well, a good choice on the menu and... More

This was our second time in Bofinger. It is primarily a restaurant with food from the Alsace but it has much more on offer like wonderful fish from the West and South coast. We started with Cremant d' Alsace with oysters followed by Pork cheeks and a Choucroute Royale and a Kouglopff as a pudding ( these are typical Alsace... More

We finished off our weekend in Paris, having eaten in various places & saved the Bofinger for the climax! Never been more disappointed! The food was passable & varied in quality / as we both had the same Mains & experienced different quality. The greatest disappointment though was the level of service! We were professionally received & shown a table.... More

We were recommended by our friends to visit this place. The decor was amazing and the service was a bit formal. We had bofinger seafood platter which was not as fresh as we had hoped. The bofinger sausage was also let us down. It was a bit bland and greasy. For that sort of price you would get a couple... More

Poor attended. Waiters were very slow. The floor was dirty. The only one good dish was risotto (incredible in a place like this). Well below my expectations.

We chose this restaurant as it was recommended by bar staff at our hotel. We booked and arrived on a Rainey Monday eve. It was full and we were seated in a cosy corner. No offer to take coats which we had to secure on the bench, not nice when you are damp and then cramped. Menu in French and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
