Frankly, we weren't sure what we'd find here, but the food was well-executed with a nice twist on traditional French cooking. Although this is a neighborhood restaurant, it's a cut above the average. If you're staying in the Marais, I would recommend going here.

We had dinner at Les Enfats Rouges which is now run by a Japanese team. The restaurant offers a 40 euro three-course menu featuring traditional French food with a Japanese touch. The food is excellent and original. We had a delicious mushroom soup with foie gras pieces and a plate of raw fish for starters. The mains were a calamari... More

I have known this small restaurant for years but had not been back for more than 4 years. Always was good bistro cuisine. A year and a half ago, Les Enfants Rouges changed owners and whaou! This is fancy bistro cuisine today and very well done! Hats off to this young japanese couple. I hope their talent and dedication be... More

If I can only have one meal in Paris this is always my number one. I love the slow cooked eggs and steak. I have never had a meal here I have not loved and have eaten here at least 10 times. The Owners are the most gracious people. The small wine list is great. Prices are so reasonable. It... More

This is a small covered food market. We went there a little early before midday while every one was setting up. It was on a tuesday when it is suppose to be shut but half the store holders were still there. We took an hour walking around the neighbourhood then came back to a busy happening food area. Japanese, Moroccan,... More

Les Enfants Rouges is an outstanding example of a frequently cited, but--in our experience--unusual phenomenon: an émigré chef adding home-country nuance to traditional French cooking. Here, chef Dai Shinozuka gave us two courses of Japanese-influenced seafood and fish, finished with a perfect baba au rhum, The service (directed by Mrs. Shinozuka herself) was impeccable. It was one of our best... More

Recommended by a food guide, this lovely restaurant has fantastic ambience w amazing food. The entire restaurant was filled w Japanese who were obviously return customers. The cooking is wonderful French style but w a slight Japanese twist. 40E for 3 courses was a real bargain. The entree of sea bass (bar mirine) was divine as was the vichyssoise. The... More

A Japanese chef, Japanese wait staff (who, by the way are extremely courteous and helpful) and there's not a piece of sushi to be seen. Sure there is use of ingredients that probably come more naturally but this is good French-style cooking in a relaxed and casual environment. The menu is fixed price for three courses (€40 when we visited)... More

Excellent Japanese chef runs this small boutique restaurant. French dishes of pate and veal and fish with classic French desserts. Three-course meal that was good but not mind blowing. Attentive Japanese-style service. One single small room with informal atmosphere. It gets pretty loud and busy late in the evening. €40 for fixed-price three-course menu. Reasonable wine list, but very little... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood 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 splendor. This neighborhood 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.
