Fondue Perfection in the Marais

The fondue choices are varied, with options that are separated out by French region so you have cheese offered traditionally from a particular region. The wines are (of course) also well featured. The place has a basement that is a cavern (apparently - we were in the smaller upstairs are), so the... read more

We went to Pain Vin Fromage without a reservation and they helped get us seated quickly, with plenty of time to enjoy the meal and a bottle of wine. The server treated us well; helping us with the order, telling us about the cheese, and being prompt and attentive. We had a salad and fondue and they were both excellent.... More

If you are a cheese lover then get your eating hat on because this is the place for you (it also helps if you like bread and wine!). A real feast and delicious. A good selection as well as there being meat alternatives. My only comment is that our table for 2 (upstairs) was virtually a table for 4 i.e.... More

This is a great little restaurant in the Marais. My sister and I were looking for a place to eat in our neighborhood, and we followed the recommendations posted on TripAdvisor. The host/server spoke English and was gracious and accommodating to us, even though we had no reservations. He helped with the menu and we decided to order the classic... More

A little gem in the shadows of the centre Pompidou ! U rushed and warm service, amazing good wines and a cheese lovers heaven. When you walk in you might not find it the most "attractive" place to eat but as soon as the owner greets you with his warm smile and the food starts to arrive you will forget... More

If you like fondue, or want to try one, this is a good place. We had a beef fondue, 80 seconds was our preferred timing.

The restaurant is very English-friendly. The wait staff is efficient and helpful. It's kind of down a hidden street but google maps got us there. We ordered: Fondue savoyarde (traditional fondue), mixed green salad (split between the two of us) and chocolate fondue for dessert (note: the chocolate fondue is not served in a pot but rather warm on a...

This place has great atmosphere. We shared two different fondues, a normal one and a blue cheese one. While the normal one was very nice we found blue cheese didn't really work in a fondue.

We wanted a proper cheese fondue during our trip to Paris and found the perfect one at Pain Vin Fromage. Good choice of alternative fondues but we went with the traditional which was fantastic. Good looking cheese boards and other non fondues are available from what we saw others eating. Our 6 year old loved it too! Very charming owner... More

Fantastic experience dinning here with friends. Ordered a cheese and a meat fondue and still ate way too much! If you can get in the cellar (downstairs) go for it as it's a very cool atmosphere, warm with heaps of people but totally worth it. Servers are very knowledgeable and friendly. Will be going back the next time we're in... More

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.
