We visited Les Philosophes for dinner, based on the recommendations of some friends. The restaurant is very popular, so reservations are recommended. Menu is large and there are options for a 2-course or 3-course set. There are also daily special dishes. Food is prepared with fresh, locally source ingredients and was delicious. Selection of wine is also diverse and very... More

Visited on a couple of occasions and found it inconsistent. the first time, as a group of 6, we were well looked after and advised. As a couple, visiting during the day, we found the menu less attractive and the staff less interested in helping. Cramped interior.

We saw the queues outside Les Philosophes and decided to check it out for a late lunch. So glad we did, great service, very tasty and fresh food. All the food arriving at neighbouring tables looked fresh and delicious as well.

Staff was a bit hurried but I think that is just Paris. I just had the onion soup. It was delicious. I had a little bread too. I would go back when I am hungrier!

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends in Adelaide as a must go to! The restaurant was busy but the staff were attentive and friendly and we had a chat with the very effusive owner/author. We both ordered confit de canard and it was cooked to perfection. A thoroughly enjoyable experience

Had an absolutely great lunch, sitting outside, at lunchtime. The service was great (which honestly you don't always get in Paris, but these guys were great!) The food was delicious 😋 This really is a great place and if your in Paris you have to try it! Just wonderful, life felt so good!

Staying in Le Marais

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.
