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.

Not to my liking

Should have known better. Paris restaurant catering for tourists. Food was average and not warm, wine was below par and prices a little expensive. Try it once for the experience, better can be found.

Seven in our group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. We all enjoyed our drinks, meal, and dessert. Guy Legrandidier went out of his way to ensure we had a great evening. Several had the French onion soup and said it was about the best they have eaten. I had the Perigord-style stuffed pigs trotter with celery puree and... More

The restaurant that never closes! A really authentic feel if dining out in Paris - may not be for you if you don't like seafood or pork, but if you do, this is a great place to eat. Friendly staff, food well presented and accompanied by plenty of fresh bread, this is a bustling and popular dining experience. Chef's specials... More

We had a fantastic vaitor Sebestien, and he said to try the cheese plate, and it was amazing! With the caraffel blanc, it was the best.

A very good variety on the menu, our table went from sea food to beef stopping almost everywhere in between. Food was well prepared and the staff was helpful and pleasant. I recommend if you are there on business or with friends, would not say the place is romantic.

A little touristy but not a bad place. If you are American, do not think you are going to get the same Andouille sausage here as you do in the states. The taste and texture are quite different, but it is very good. Wait staff was attentive, price was nice, and the overall experience was very good. More traditional French... 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.
