Alsatian Brasserie with Attitude

Chez Jenny is well worth visiting as an attraction - a HUGE space with multiple rooms, bustling waiters, and an old fashioned, comfortable brasserie decor. A sister restaurant to Au Pied de Cochon, it offers similar mid-priced, familiar food - in this case, from the Alsace region. Excellent... read more

I arrange a dinner for our group of 200 on the bottom floor of this restaurant. The manager was very accommodating as long as we all left by 8:30 pm on a Friday night. They served an amazing, very creamy Quiche Lorraine. The main course was Chicken escalope cooked in Riesling with buttered tagliatelle, which made me feel like I... More

I went back here for lunch as I'd had dinner with two friends on my last trip to Paris, probably around 9-10 years ago. It was as good as ever. I had a gorgeous gratinee, quiche and a yummy ice cream dessert. However, I asked the waiter if service was included and he said no, so I added a tip.... More

An interesting restaurant serving traditional Alsatian cuisine. My colleagues tucked into the typical "Germanic" dishes whilst I opted for the more typically French oysters and steak tartar. The food was first class, the decor inspiring and the staff were very efficient and most polite. Highly recommended! There was nothing to dislike at all.

Whenever we stay near the Marais, we hot foot it over to Chez Jenny. We love this famous brasserie. One of our favorite meals is their pig knuckles but you can also find salads, soups and many other Alsatian specialties. A very popular restaurant among local Parisiennes, so be sure to make a reservation.

If you are looking for a traditional Parisian dining experience that excels then Chez Jenny is the place. This offers the chance to savour Alsacienne dishes but has a broad menu that will suit most tastes. The restaurant has a unique decor with a warm and welcoming team - the oysters and pave de saumon d'Ecosse marine are worth every... More

Went in on-spec, just looking for something good and we found it! The service and food were both excellent. With the Alsace speciality, it was nice to find something French, but also different. The service was both welcoming and efficient, the food that we chose could not have been better - try the "meat skewer". We would definitely recommend chez... More

We arrived for lunch without reservation, under one of those showers of rain so typical of Northern Europe in February. Our good luck: we found the best door! Super friendly staff, excellent food, and do not forget to take a tour around because the decoration is something special: inlaid marquetry work by Alsatian artist https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Spindler.

This restaurant has a rustic feel to it, there is a big display of seafood on ice, which I'm sure tasted lovely, however unfortunately this does make for fishy smell, not great if you're not keen on fish. We ate in a large group and had pre-ordered our meals. They came to us hot and on time, everyone got what... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
