Description: 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.

We came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a family member who had come here a number of years ago and had enjoyed their famed pork trotters. Being fans of pork trotters ourselves, we knew we had to give it a try ourselves. Unfortunately, it's not the easiest restaurant to find. This was partly due to suboptimal directions given... More

We went here after a late concert at Stade de France, naively expected decent food at the concert and so decided to find dinner afterwards and found this lovely brasserie online. 24/7 and absolutely packed for the whole time we were there from 12.00-2.00am. Great food, brilliant atmosphere and fantastic service. We were looked after by a lovely man, Thierry,... More

It is a traditional restaurant near La Halle. Quite a big place, favoured by both locals and tourists. Not the cheapest, but the food quality is high (pork meals and sea food).

We have been going to Paris since 1963 and have been many times to Au Pied de Cochon.In September we went again as I felt at 80 it may be my last visit to Paris. Like me,the restaurant is old and tired and sadly only a shadow of it's former glory. The Maitre'd was disinterested that we had been visiting... More

For my point view it looks that is a very tourist oriented restaurant., it is open 24 HRS., the speciality of the house is the pork feet, if you love this plate this is the place, comes along with a Bernaise sauce that is very very along with it.

I went there specifically to try their onion soup which they are noted for. I had that a salad and a drink. Onion soup is very good but didn't knock my socks off. Salad was OK. Expensive and somewhat touristy. Doubt I'd go back

We ate here on our last night in Paris as a special treat. The service we received was excellent, the recommendations we received for the Oysters and Iberian pork were good. My wife had the salmon tar-tare and declared it average, unseasoned. The desserts were delicious, especially the rum baba - I'd recommend this to anyone eating there. The decor... More
