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.

Duck fois gras and bourbon <3

The duck fois gras (I think that's what it was called) was delicious, rivaling the Peking duck I've eaten. The bourbon was like a light, fluffy sweet-but-not-too-sweet pudding. And it's 24-hour, which is nice for midnight snacking. I don't quite remember the prices, but I know it was expensive... read more

The snails filled with garlic, parsly and butter are always perfectly cooked. The rest of the menu does not change much, which personally I enjoy as I often order the same dish: le pied de cochon. Great Rococco décor and right off the Chatelet subway station as you get off from CDG

We pretty much ate everything that was put in front of us, even tried the head cheese....Better like fish or pork. Wait staff was friendly if a little inattentive, but I think its hard when the people you are serving don't speak the language very well. We all tried. Great location, in the heart of the 1st.

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.

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.
