Absolutelly Great

The first time we came across to this restaurant we were looking for a dinning place but it was fully booked so we enter the one in front on the other side of the street (average). A few months later, again, wandering around me and other group ended up in front of the restaurant; I recognized it... read more

Love, love, love this place..! We've been coming here for years (ever since we discovered it) & have never been disappointed, on the contrary, we are regularly surprised by the continued consistancy & amazing quality of the food, wine & service, despite the ever-increasing success of the place... The food is always divine, cooked fresh from-scratch by Monsieur & his... More

This restaurant was just around the corner from the hotel The first meal was Beef Bourg and Beef Wellington with razor clams as an entrée. All dishes were done perfectly. The second time we were there my wife had pear and gargonzola ravioli and I had fresh linguine with tomato pesto. Would have returned for a third visit but time... More

We visited this restaurant twice. The food is very good and the wine choice wide so you can find something at your price point. When Madame is in attendance the place hums. She makes everybody feel at home and very welcome. Without Madame the service is still good but doesn't have that wow factor. Very highly recommended

The food and wine were amazing. The sommelière was inspiring, well informed and had very good wine and spirits on offer. The young waiter was snooty and pretentious. Perhaps typical for France, but we were seated next to the only other clients, a couple 2 inches away from us. The four of us ate "together" for almost an hour before... More

The restaurant I like to go when I am out and about shopping on rue de Rivoli. I have never been for dinner, always for lunch, but the food was perfect. I like it because the ambiance is versatile. I can go with my gf or my business partners alike! Love the cafe gourmant for dessert!

Right at the corner of Rue des deux Boules, a few steps from Rue Rivoli and opposite one of the exits of metro station Chatelet this little gem with their kind and welcoming staff are all you can wish for after a long day of walking and sight-seeing. Food is superb, wines ask for more and the desserts are heavenly.... 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.
