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.

Good food and experience!

We have been there 2 times in 3 days. The food and atmosphere are good! We love the seafood platter (Royal). Beef tartare is superb! Beef fillet is good too. We are not very keen on the Pig trotter. The down side is the managers and waiters are always busy. But they are generally friendly and... read more

After seeing a suggestion of the restaurant online and realising the convenient location at Les Halles and the 7/7 24hr continuous service, my boyfriend and I paid there a visit. I have a current obsession with onion soup so I tried their version, it was overloaded with cheese and very greasy in comparison to another that I had in the... More

When in Paris you can't miss this restaurant. Right in the heart of Paris, close to lots of points of interest and with good food and wine. I loved it!

We needed a referral from our concierge to get in, as this is a serious restaurant not aimed at tourists. It has operated 24 hours without closing for over 30 years. No one knows how long because they didn't note the date it last closed. & it is at least 2 stories high with multiple rooms. Maybe higher but I... More

Their onion soup may be not bad but their attitude towards their clients sucks. I went there today with my best friend who came in Paris and I was so ashamed that I brought her there!!! I saw people on the terrace and naturaly we sat down. They told us with the most rude tone possible that there is no... More

A lot of history in this restaurant and several specialty dishes. It has a very nice charm to it and I would go back there just for that. However, the food took more than an hour to be served and the dessert took another 25-30 minutes. So if you are short on time, you might want to reconsider before going... More

The food, wine and service here is amazing. We had razor clams (12€ for about 30 clams... We thought it was a mistake but they were just ridiculously good value!) along with prawns and langoustines. Not only were the portions generous and well priced but the staff were lovely too. We sat upstairs in a corner, and had lots of... 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.
