We were warned before arriving in France that the service could be abrupt at French restaurants, but the waiters at this restaurant went out of their way on Valentines night to make us feel welcome. I am so glad we took his advice on the house specialty of Alsace sauerkraut.

We found this place by accident, not knowing it was kind of famous. We got a table upstairs. The decorations in this place seem to be from the opening in 1864, I don't know if they are, but they seem so. The waiters were rather busy, but very kind and smiling. I had oysters and beef tenderloin, my colleague had... More

First think when you book a restaurant like Bofinger is old school traditional atmosphere and Classic French food. All the terrines, stocks, onions everywhere, tons of butter and bottle of red. And you get all you expect. Recommend for classic ambience.

I came across this restaurant by accident, looking for somewhere to have a simple dinner. I loved the look of it, and we came back the following evening. We didn't have a reservation, but they found us a table in the main upstairs room, which filled up completely when we were about halfway through our meal. The food was very... More

We visited the Bofinger during a company incentive-trip and it was a tremendous evening. We had the most impressive and delicious sea-food dinner I have ever seen / eaten. Very attentive service and an exceptional atmosphere. Worth visiting.

A fun place, especially if you can snag a table in the big room with the stained glass ceiling. Lots of locals, usually ordering the towers of shellfish, but also the specialty, choucroute garni (sauerkraut with ham/sausages).

My wife bought me dinner at Bofinger for my birthday on our trip to Paris and we were both blown away. I had a cheese and salad starter which was fantastic - I forget the name of the cheese but it was like a very light goat/sheep cheese. Superb. My wife enjoyed the French Onion soup and couldn't help but... More

We had a delicious meal here, oysters, choucroute garni, the works. Terrific food in an architectural and historic gem. Even the downstairs toilets are a treat! But be prepared for shockingly bad service. Disorganized management, plenty of (negative) attitude from waiters. Despite three confirmations, they couldn't find my reservation and didn't want to see it on my mobile. Because t... 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.
