Stopped for a beer away from the local bustle. Decent priced Pelforth, very lively, good service, disgusting toilets (the reason it's marked down).

A nice unpretentious bistro well-situated across from the national archives. I had a delicious roast spring chicken served with the pan drippings and sides of fried potatoes and a small salad. Dessert was a delicious baba à rhum. I will be back!

We stopped in for a late supper away from some of the bustle in the Marais. Simple food well prepared, good wine list, helpful service. Not fancy, but fine value for money and great location.

We came here our first day in Paris after a redeye flight. I ordered the pasta in truffle sauce and it was amazing! It was a great way to start our Paris vacation! I recommend this spot if you are in the area.

Seeking a restaurant in Les Halles that did not look too geared to tourists and was reasonable, we stumbled upon this establishment slightly off the main area. It was perfect for what we were looking for on our first night in Paris - very good...More

Excellent welcome in the heart of the Marais. I moved to this neighborhood last year - one which boasts countless desired addresses (often with attitude and prices to accompany), and this is one of the restaurants I have counted on for a consistently welcoming staff,...More

Le Marais

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
