We actually ate here twice. It gets crowded but you can have a fun time at the little bar before sitting down. It seems a lot of locals eat here. We even ate with some and visited their store afterwards. It's great home cooked Parisian food. We were a bit disappointed with French Fries which were... read more

Very interesting, tasty, and appealing menu. Classic French. We had foie gras, escargots, veals head, fat duck breast and profiteroles. Tiny place, with ambience less charming than neon tubes. But none the less just as pleasant as authentic. Fell in conversation with other guest like the food served gave an imitate desire to share the experience with strangers. Must say... More

We were lucky to come in early & still get a table for 2, which is unlikely, for this small restaurant is known among locals and tourists. It is best to reserve a table on beforehand. My wife had a delicous chicken with morel mushrooms, and I had the veal medaillon, both with a mxed vegetable dish. The wine suggested... More

One of the best meals I have ever had. Amazing artichoke appetizer. My chicken w/ mushrooms and husband's beef w/ potatoes were simply delicious.

We stumbled upon this restaurant and I think were lucky to get a place. It is a traditional French restaurant close to our hotel during the tourdeframbo.com event.

Lovely meal, great kind service and good value. I loved that it was situated in the Marais, just around the corner from our apartment. I also loved that it had a wonderful family atmosphere.

Had a lovely evening here recently. Thursday evening and it was full. Food lovely and portions generous. Couldnt manage a pudding but my husband had millefeuille. After a spoonful i regretted not ordering it as it was delicious.

Excellent traditional French menu for lunch, well patronised by locals. We had two courses with a demi litre of red Bordeaux plus coffee. Good size servings, polite service, warm and cosy in winter. I would go back on a future trip.

This unasumming bistro was very busy with locals and some tourists. And i am not surprised, the food is simple but absolutly delicious. Staff were very busy but service was still great. Menu was very good value for money, atmosphere was warm, welcoming and authentic french.

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.
