L'Aller Retour is a wonderful, cozy restaurant that truly understands French cuisine and excellent service. My husband and I did not have reservations for tonight, so we gave L'Aller a shot. Upon walking in, the maitre de told us he had a cancellation for the evening and we could have a table. We we were promptly seated and introduced to... More

Book ahead because this restaurant fills up quickly. We arrived early on Friday night so got a spot on a table that was booked later. Service was a bit slow throughout the evening, but later when the restaurant was full at least it made sense. The menu is relatively brief, containing primarily beef in different cuts. While the entrees looked... More

We had an excellent evening at L'Aller Retour near Place de la République in Paris. You have to enjoy beef to enjoy this restaurant but if this is the case you will not be disappointed. Service was attentive and friendly. Detailed information was provided on the menu items as well as the evening specials. We enjoyed steaks cooked to perfection... More

We had a great time! The restaurant was 2 blocks from where we were staying and had availability at 7:30 pm. So convenience was what brought us here and we were happy it did!! We had escargot as an app and steak and potatoes for dinner. We also had a great bottle of Pinot Noir that was recommended by the... More

Found this through trip advisor, thank you. Previous reviews are right, the steak is the best thing. Small menus, reasonably priced 18 euros main course. I had the pave' steak , not perfect , my husband had the 'noix' which was perfect. Friendly staff, tables v close together, so not romantic. Great for a Sunday night. V busy so book... More

My sister had her birthday dinner here. What a fun evening and a lovely area! The restaurant is small but has great ambience and friendly staff. We loved the steak and the burgers! Try the cheesecake for dessert!

We arrived at 20:15 and the food wasn't served until 21:30! We had to ask 4x for bread because we were starving. Additionally, when we asked for ice to keep the wine cold they told us they had ran out of and we should go and walk to the bar across the street to get some (couldn't they do it... More

This small restaurant is tucked away in the High Marais, near Republique. If you are not a meat eater, particularly beef, don't bother! It is casual and not at all romantic or fine dining. The service was a touch perfunctory but the meat was the best we have had in Paris. A steak up to the standard of the best... More

Previous reviews were spot on about the quality of steak. I had an off menu cut and it was one of the best steaks I have had in Europe. My standards for steaks are high so I am hard to impress. The place was full but I was able to sit at the bar for dinner. Service was great 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.
