My partner's steak was fatty and poor quality. His chips did not arrive until he was halfway through his meal and only after reminding the staff twice. My gratin potatoes were underdone. My pork was overdone. According to the menu it was meant to be in a sage jus but instead was tarragon which I would not have ordered. When... More

This cafe is well respected by the locals. It is not expensive and the food is good. The service is charming. It is NOT fancy.

I have had better steak in a microwave dinner. Very low quality steak frites. It was very tough, fatty and really just unbelievable they would even serve it. There were two orders at the table and they were both the same. Complaints at the time were not understood by the french speaking staff.

You'll enjoy this little spot of calm in the middle of a busy district on the Rue de Turenne. If they offer the gaspacho with melons, be sure to order that. I also had a very good dish of loup.

There are too many restaurants with better service,attitude and food. Take a pass. At one time the snotty servers, had flair, pride and great plates to put in front of the American.. Now, it's just snotty service with snotty food and prices that are insulting for the whole show.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times, and often recommend it to friends visiting Paris They offer typical, classical French food, very well prepared, at very reasonable prices. This is a place to go for a meal that will meet all of your expectations and preconceptions of what it's like to have dinner in Paris. The Marais is a... More

This is a restaurant to avoid if you are not Parisan. Tourists are served low quality meat, wilted salad, etc. whereas Parisans can be (and are) loud, drunk and aggressive and still be served better food. All of this for a price that could give you fresh quality food and honorable service.

A superb white asparagus potage for starter followed with a well seasoned tartare and magnificent joues de veau teamed up very well with a very distinctive St-Joseph. That were the ingredients for an excellent dinner. The dessert was awesome as well and the match with the Muscat Beaumes de Venises from Domaine Bernardins was again impressive. We will come back...

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.
