Lovely spot with old style bar on the main floor. Up the sloped staircase to a small, but pretty room with 6-7 tables on the second. Limited menu is hard core French traditional. Lentilles du puy au foie gras (fois gras on a bed of lentils) was magnificent and reasonably priced at 13 euro.

This is a small historic restaurant which has been given a new life by an American chef in Paris. The food is unabashedly traditional French. Limited choice of entrees, mains and deserts all well delivered. Everyone at the table appreciated all their dishes. You go up an old staircase and access a small restaurant. A cosy bar seems to get... More

The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The waitstaff was incredibly personable, knowledgeable and professional - all three tonight. The food was horrible! The boullion soup was all broth and the "poached" egg was closer too hard boiled - more broth than in any pictures we viewed. We ordered the veal cheek, which was super fatty and tough. I had one...

Fantastic find ! I organised dinner for 23 in the restaurant with Remy for the second sitting - It feels like a private dining room with the original setting on the first floor with a wonderfully friendly and professional young team and delicious dinner - it was an outstanding success ( great interesting wines too ) and another great achievement...

The restaurant is tiny but the food is huge -- not the portions, they're normal, I mean the quality. I had the lentils and foie gras, which was extraordinary, followed by a simple but scrumptious blanquette de veau. The service was friendly and professional. The restaurant is up one flight in this charming and ancient building and the stairway has... More

had a table outside, busy street that you can enjoy watching people too, busy restaurant, very helpful staff, great food, only the interior may be lack of fresh air when crowded and toilets might need attention as they are in the middle of the restaurant. overall good experience.

We had high expectations comming back to this cosy restaurant with a long history. But it was a disapointment to us. It is nothing in comparison to what it was 2 years ago. The food is nothing special and the service was a bit sloppy. They attended a larger group upstairs so the waitress was absent most of the time.... More

The place is quaint and very parisian looking.... But the food is a joke. There has got to be some error in all previous reviews or there must have been a change in ownership and chef. We were overprices super basic bistrot food and the wine list was totally overpriced. I recommend you switch to the other side of the... More

We made a reservation here on the advice of a French friend who lives in Paris, and had an excellent dinner with dishes that were twists on traditional French cuisine. The fixed menu had around 5 or 6 choices for appetizers and entrees (30-something Euros, including dessert). I had a the raw mackerel starter and my wife had soup, both... More

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.
