We ate here this weekend by chance having checked out the menus in a number of restaurants in the area and oh how happy were we with our choice. The food was delicious, the wine perfect and the service warm and inviting. We will definitely return the next time we're in Paris and have already recommended the restaurant to friends... More

Lunch Saturday, the resto full of parisiens. All happy. That's a great sign, because when local residents patronize a place, you know they think it's both good and good value. Staff smiling and welcoming, the food excellent. Bisque d'homard, very tasty, then boudin noir, tres Bon. Good food, Good wine, good service, reasonable prices, all within a stones through of...

This is a busy place that is very much alive! The staff were friendly and cheerful , providing great service. The food was terrific! My wife had the best Beef Bourguignon ever and my Canard was tender and juicy. Wine selection was not overly extensive but good never-the -less.

We booked for dinner for the 6 of us (4 adults / 2 kids) to celebrate a birthday and we went through an awful experience. The only spot free was at 22:00 but we took it... knowing we'd be 10 minutes late we called the restaurant to let them know... we called for 20 minutes during our commute. No one... More

I am in love. Outdoor dining on a lovely fall day. We were a bit late in being hungry for lunch and were thrilled when they said, "Pas de probleme." Tables indoor and out, all very close with lots of activity from dates to business meetings to us tourists. A coupe de champagne and some local treats....then my Beef Bourguignon... More

We actually came back to this establishment while we were in Paris last week to have their Burgundy Beef. As a starter, we tried their razor Clams. This has to be one of the best cooked razor Clams I have tasted. It is simply marvelous ! For a long time, I thought I would never find a clam dish better... More

What a wonderful evening!! We walked into the restaurant at 7:00 on a Friday evening without a reservation, but the owner was gracious to give us a little table by the window. Very soon, Anne, the owner's wife, came over with a very cheery "Bonsoir"!! Our waiter, Nicholas, was excellent, and he was very happy to take pictures and give... More

Our Parisian friends recommended that we meet them here for dinner when we were visiting recently. It was an excellent recommendation. Food, service and atmosphere were all that you could ask for in the heart of Paris. You would not expect such a find in this touristy area.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
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 just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
