Lovely atmosphere.

We were staying at a local hotel and asked for recommendations in the local area rather than going back into the centre of town. It isn't in the nicest area to walk to - especially for a tourist - but as soon as you are inside you can just tell you will be well looked after. Friendly staff happy... read more

A meal of three halves, really. Gambas in coconut milk - one of the best starters I've ever eaten. Veal- buttery soft and exactly the shade of pink I wanted, but let down by some insipid cauliflower and green beans. Pear Charlotte with chestnut- cloyingly creamy and lacking either sweetness or bite. On the whole, the starter more than compensates... More

The restaurant is tucked away down a side street quite close to the Gare d'lest, not a neighbourhood where you would expect great quality to be honest. The atmosphere was pure French bistro, the service was excellent the menu interesting and the food sublime. The meals were simple, not overly ornate but my veal was cooked to perfection and my...

Went for a dinner with my beautifull wife at les Enfant Perdus after we read about it on TA. We were very pleased by the welcome from the staff. We had a glass of champagne for a start, pumpkin soup/ scallops for starters, the best monkfish for main and creme brulee and cheese cake, millionario rhum and coffee for desert.... More

This small restaurant just a few blocks from the Holiday Inn and the train station is a surprise. We stumbled by looking for a place to eat and found a local neighborhood gem. The servers dressed in their white t-shirts and Levis greeted many guests with familiarity. But that is not what makes this place special. It is the small... More

I was invited to this restaurant by some colleagues who had booked this restaurant for a welcome dinner to Paris. It was a Sunday night and the atmosphere was interesting, (elvis Presley music playing??) but the service was so slow...we arrived at around 8pm and did not get our main courses until closer to 10pm..... Could not even get wine... More

We were at Les Enfants Perdus a Sunday morning with a group of 6. The service was fast and really friendly. We all had the brunch which for sure was one of the better I have tried. Not super fancy, but fresh and good various dishes. Coffee is free when you are having the brunch...would go whisk if I was... More

This lovely restaurant is an absolute gem in Paris and a mist visit. It gives a fine dining experience and the waiters were amazingly friendly and spoke excellent English. My mum and I visited last night and had the beef filet followed by the mini sample desserts and a chocolate fondant. DELICIOUS! Cannot say enough good things about our dining... More

It's a very nice restaurant of French cuisine. We went with some friends and we had a nice time. I had Foie Gras as a starter, and Filet de Bœuf as the main. It was lovely. I think the service can be better, if the waiters were a bit more friendly :)

This is exactly what I like, creative but not crazy, high quality but a cozy and relaxed atmosphere and beautiful wines. Can highly recommend the tartare de daurade and the côte de veau. My partner was impressed by the gambas with mango and the filet de boeuf. There are actually more fish options should that be your preference. No room... More

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighborhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
