We had the most amazing meals here. Out of our week in Paris, I think we ate here three different times. If you can, I recommend getting a seat downstairs in the "cellar" area, as the ambiance is a little nicer than upstairs. The staff here cannot be nicer. They truly went out of their way to make my husband... More

We all chose different selections of regional cheeses and we all loved our platters. This is a great way to discover different, original cheeses which one cannot ordinarily find. The service is excellent: friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating, if a bit slow. The restaurant itself is charming, we were seated in the "cave" (basement) which had a great atmosphere. I would...

Every visit to Paris includes a trip to PVF. It's a charming little old place in the Marais, with friendly service that includes deep knowledge of the cheeses of France, and the wines to accompany them. There are fondues and raclettes and assorted cheese plates, and cheese served warm over bread and meats. It's an intimate sort of place, where... More

... they would never be disappointed by this fantastic restaurant near the centre pompidou. Their fondues and raclettes will make you spend a very nice moment of food sharing. Their selection of regional cheeses will blow your mind. The restaurant is very nice (ask for the downstairs room) and the service excellent. About 30-35 euro for a fondue, wine and... More

This restaurant is definitely my one place everyone should go! Yes there's LOTS of restaurants in Paris, but there's not that many that I would tell anyone to go. It's cute and good for any occasion, I've been there in a date, I've been with group dinners and with family meals, all counts and all are good. I've tried other... More

First off, the cheese fondue is excellent. After that, it gets to be just ok. This is NOT typical American fondue. You also dont get a Chocolate fondue desert. It is more pre-made chocolate that is on a plate. Service is good. Prices are reasonable.

We stumbled into this place by accident and happened to have the most amazing French cheeses we have ever tasted. The service was wonderful and accommodating. The Wine, meats, cheese were out of this world. The place is tiny do a lot of other people had reservations, but we were able to get a table right away. Highly recommend!

You like cheese? Good, because they have an impressive variety of cheeses and fondues along with some excellent wine choices. The fondue we had was OK and more than a little filling so only order if you are really hungry. The upstairs area is rather cramped but I see now that there is a "cavern" area as well that would...

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 ambiance is very nice. It isn't just fondue... 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.
