A little gem

A little gem in Le Marche des enfants rouges to drink/dine away from the masses on the main street. A hearty sized Meat and cheese platter for €16. And Beers around €4 each.

This is an unfussy establishment where the owner serves you respectable food. Romantic notions about French bistros should be suppressed in advance. We had snails, ravioli and Fricasse de saint-Jacques, all worth eating, though none of them outstanding. There was a decent Chablis at 33 euros. Nothing more to say, really.

good food but I would say not too eat too much as very rich and fatty. The ambiance is great , service is very good and very French relaxed bistro.

I came to Paris for 3 days with my mother and our host listed this as one of his favourite places to visit so we were excited to go there. We we put in a tiny table between two other tables with little to no room and felt like intruders when we tried to talk. There was no space -... More

My wife and I arrived at the Restaurant about 3 pm after a long walk round the 11th arrondissment on 28th of August. We had visited the eatery in the past and had enjoyed excellent food and been impressed by the dynamic young local crowd eating there. We asked the waitress Alisson whether we could eat so late and she... More

Decent meal at a reasonable price, what in years gone by one would have got from the Guide Routier (whatever become of that?). I can believe that, as other reviews have indicated, the recent change of management might have let former standards slip, but we had two perfectly good meals there at the end of July, with four Francophobe young...

Recent reviewers right. Worst food I've eaten in Paris…..average service. Pretty grubby looking plates, water bottles, etc. But food worst of all. Main course of Veal entombed in cheese, ham and great potatoes was pretty hideous. Avoid!

I had the unfortunate experience of proving recent reviewers totally correct about the bad food quality compared to its previous level. I had the confit du canard, and the grease dripped from it. I found some meat I could eat after stripping off the skin. Grease level same for the pommes frites served with it. Kind of a scuzzy neighborhood,... More

Warning. All previous food reviews are no longer valid. This restaurant is under new ownership: New chef and all personnel. I spoke to Roy, the previous owner and several of the staff prior to the sale. Nobody was staying. Still the same charming building but look for new food reviews. I believe it changed hands around mid-March to early April... More
