The food market entices you with it's delightful smells and atmosphere, it is however not very friendly and the restaurant are very uptight about where you sit and not bringing food from other stalls to the table. The Moroccan stall was so rude we refused to eat their even after waiting in a long queue. The food was below average... More

(That's yum-yum in French, and his creations are way beyond yummy.) This is a crowded group of food stalls down an alleyway off Rue de Bretagne. It was confusing for us first-timers who spoke no French, but interestingly so. There is an excellent-seeming Moroccan place, an organic French place, a decent-looking Italian place, a Japanese stall where the grilled sardines... More

We lived in Paris for a month and did enjoy going. What always bums us out at this market is the lack of community the place exudes. For example, you can not take your pasta for your kids two steps away to the Moroccan place or vice versa. The adherence to this rule prohibited us from actually staying there on... More

After walking for hours in the Marais, you will appreciate this flea / street market as a food stop destination. You can find in there 4-5 different options (a creperie, a burger shop, a libanese and a japonais restaurant) with reasonable (yet not cheap) prices. Crowded and noisy, the style of atmosphere you expect in a flea market (however with... More

We stopped here on 2 occasions with a a family of four and found good selections and ambiance. The place even turns into a dance bar on the weekend night. Pretty cool.

Definitely worth a visit for foodies. Place is easy to find at 39 Rue de Bretagne. Lots of food stalls to choose from and buzzing on a Saturday afternoon. Frequented by tourists and locals alike. The couscous and tagine chicken with vegetables and preserved lemon from Morrocan stall was one of the best I have tasted. There was a long... More

The Enfants Rouges used to be less known by tourists but is still mainly a Parisian haunt. A review below suggests that it is closed Sunday but we only ever go on Sundays when this street is bustling and you can choose from bakeries, fruit and veg vendors, rotisserie shops, cheese shops, a seven day supermarket and the market itself....

It is perhaps like the Navy Pier in Chicago or the Granville Island in Vancouver. It's a bit of a market, a bit of a bar and a bit of a restaurant (or several restaurants). The fare at most restaurants is rather ... multifarious, caters to a wider international audience and affordable. About 20 minutes by walk from the cathedral... More
