Quaint, great service, fine food

This a wonderful find by my husband based on tripadvisor reviews. We went early - when the restaurant opened for dinner - and we had the place to ourselves. The owner does not speak a lot of English but some of her staff does. She is able to make great recommendations nonetheless. The food and the wine was outstanding. I... More

My dad took me to Paris for a surprise 30th birthday weekend. Our first stop was this quaint cafe. I fell in love with it, food was beautiful, service was fantastic, can't wait to visit again!

The food was good and for the lunch menu it was really good value. It was a small shop, and we weren't expecting much. However the food is really nice, simple and nice. We were walking near that area and decided to give it a go, and we never regretted it.

This delightful brasserie is literally a real gem. Tucked away between louder and flashier joints this is a real gem and serves delicious food for lunch and dinner, Tuesdays to Saturdays. The EUR24 three course menu is always changing with fresh and simple food being served constantly well, and a fair selection of wine to accompany your meal. The owner... More

I went there by chance today for a quick lunch. I got the formule; the taste was great and at a fair price. Cocotte eggs as a starter and beef brouchette as a main dish. Very nice. I will probably go there again with my wife soon.

Authentic Places like this are becoming more and more rare in Paris and should be savoured at every opportunity, lest you return to Paris one day and it's closed due to all the chains taking over everywhere. Run do not walk there and soak up the ambiance of a Paris that our children may never know. Everything is delicious.

My family had an excellent meal at Le Gros Minet during our Paris trip. The owners/operators were warm and friendly, and made us feel at home. I had the onion soup, duck confit, and then the warm chocolate cake. We also had the pate (very good!) and the creme brulee. Would recommend to anyone!

We happened upon this place when Denice's 2 doors away was full. We weren't disappointed. Lovely flavourful comfortable home cooking in a charecterful setting. Fish terrain and onion soup both superb. Mains of veal kidneys in creme mustard sauce and cod in orange creme sauce were lovely. We shared a generous portions of tart tatin for dessert which was to... 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.
