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.

Old Parisian staple

An old Parisian staple with good service and excellent seafood. For those who love pig's feet, the place to go. Expect the bill to match the reputation though.

This outstanding restaurant is well positioned near the Les Halles tube station. Our summer melon starters were inspirational. The pigs feet were divine and included the full suite of china from finger bowls to side plates to allow complete enjoyment of this delicacy. The Beaujolais recommended by our waiter was a Brouilly which may have been stronger than necessary but... More

Well, what can I say... Exuberant ambiance, very art deco. Very nice staff, great food and wines. Having eaten here, you will definitely want to come again. It is very popular, so book well in advance.

With all of the many options Paris has to offer, I recommend seeking something better out. Food was entirely average yet relatively expensive, staff were dismissive, we were given the wrong food. All in all disappointing!

It's with all my family that I went in this restaurant for a birthday as my sister-in-law, a Paris native, invited us all there. It is, for her, one of the must in the city. The place is in fact extremely busy. More and more busy as the night comes down (there was one hour of waiting when we left... More

We enjoyed the food very much. The lamb stew was delicious! My husband ordered the pig's trotter and they warn you ahead of time there isn't much meat on it, and there wasn't! However, he said the flavor was fantastic - the best tasting meal he had on our two week trip, but least satisfying in terms of fulfilling the... More

I cannot understand the negative comments for this restaurant... I have been to a fair amount of restaurants in Paris and frankly this is one of the best so far. Service was good, large quantity and excellent food! We especially enjoyed the snails, tartare and pig's trotters. Oh and not to mention the restaurant is nicely decorated. Would visit again.

Great restaurant although not one of Michelin starred restaurants in Paris. A very interesting menu specializing in pig (as its name shows) but its seafood was excellent too. We actually went back two nights later.

Whenever I have been lucky enough to be in Paris, I always enjoyed the onion soup at Au Pied de Cochon. This started years ago before our first trip when we read a review the top 10 restaurants that offered great onion soup. My husband and I tried them all and voted Au Pied as the clear winner.

Dear Betsy, We're proud to read a review about a regular for more than ten year. However, we're truly sorry to read that our onion soup disappointed you this time. You have to know it was probably a one time mistake because the recipe and the quality products used to make the onion soup are still the same since far... More

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.
