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.

I ordered two dishes of pork, the famous pied de Cochon, clearly a house specialty, for me and my wife. We were surprised as there was no meat at all in the dishes, just bone and fat. As we argued the waiter he told us this was how the dish really was. My wife ask to replace the dish but... More

Stopped here for a late lunch. Only a few diners were lingering when we arrived, but but the time we left, the place was filling up again. Apparently the place never closes -- open 24/7. Elegant surroundings and friendly service. Meat, particularly pork, is abundant on the menu, but other options are available. Some of the best bread available in... More

Old French restaurant, nice and with its own style. Open 24 hours. Was surprised to find very good seafood there, good service (not frequent in France). In the evenings (at least Thursday to Saturday) they seem to have queues waiting for tables, so maybe it is better to make a reservation in advance.

I live in Mexico city and the Mexican Pied du Cochon is a lot fancier than the one in Paris. The oysters are a must, the Pied du cochon another very filling must. It's been around forever and lived through many years of history and the main menu is basically the same. I Highly recommend it.

We went for dinner on Dec 29. Very busy. Unfortunately we did not have reservations so ended up waiting for an hour. Half tourists and half locals in the line as best as i can tell. The prices are very high. We got the Fruit de Mer, which my kids liked but I cannot stand the fishy taste - raw... More

If you are coming for oysters, fancy sea food... (anything that is not of PORK), you chose the WRONG address. BUT if you love meat, in particular bacon or pork... or even better, pork feet, this is THE PLACE in Paris!!! Service: don't get me wrong, the service might not be your "American smile" service... but the waiters know their... More

Went there with a friend living in Paris: great choice ! Excellent meat, pate' and obviously cheese ! The wine was 1st class n the pices were modest for the quality. Only downside is the large crowd and nearly impossibility to book a table however will go back.

Located right in the Paris center, this is a historical restaurant. Long time ago, there was the "Les Halles" market where the restaurant could provide the fleshiest food. Nice decor, service relatively good, meals are good, prices are indeed a bit high but the price of the atmosphere.
