The ovens at Au Pied de Cochon were fired up in 1946 and they have never been turned off since. Au Pied de Cochon is a Paris institution, very near the Centre Pompidou, on your way from shopping the first arrondissement to the sightseeing the Marais. It is decorated with a profusion of Art Nouveau stylistic touches, like mirrors, fantastic chandeliers, paintings of lovely ladies. There is also an enticing terrace, and, as it's open 24/7, you can come in anytime for a meal and to watch the world go by. Menu is French. Try starter of oysters of several types and sizes, house special main course of pig's trotter stuffed with duck liver and pudding of babas au rhum.

Fun pigs!

A lover of pigs will discover all things pigs here. It is a lovely place with very helpful staff. The food is very good but I can imagine it may not deliver at its best in service or food when very busy. Best to be there when it is slower. It is only a few steps from St. Eustache and... read more

One of the best onion soup I had for a while, interesting mix of French fries and duck (lovely soft duck), but the Creme Brulee was average and the vegetarian ordered by my friend was poor.

We ate the onion classic soup, with a small bootle of wine. The soup is good, not amazing, I ate better onion soups in Paris. My review is limited because we are only the soups not the entrée. The service was fine.

Of course not the best place in Paris, but I still enjoy to go there every time for a "tentation de St. Antoine", several piece of fried pork from the ear to the tail :) Served with bearnaise sauce. Flambé kidney are not bad too..

Fantastic decor in this traditional restaurant, loved the pigs trotters door handles, and fantastic oyster stand. 3 of the 4 of us had the pied au cochon which was a bit fiddly to eat but great fun, lovely friendly staff and great surroundings, would certainly recommend.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
