A Must Stop if You're a Cheese Fan!

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... read more

Our apartment was right down the tiny street. Stumbled on to this restaurant. So crowded we made a reservation for next night. Perfect French meal!! The owner was so nice, helped choose our fondue, the salad was perfect, wine he choose too. Atmosphere cosy. People coming in all night. Very small so make a reservation or won't get in. We... More

I booked a reservation 2 weeks in advance based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were so pleased I did! ! The restaurant is quaint and the fondue delicious. We had the classic cheese fondue. We added potatoes amd they were perfect as an accompaniment. The waitress spoke several languages fluently and was absolutely lovely. We sat in the cellar and... More

Absolutely delicious. One of the conditions of our visit to Paris was that we could have fondue- I chose this restaurant based on reviews and it did not disappoint! There were lots of Savoyarde choices and the wine was delicious. Definitely book in advance to avoid disappointment as it is quite small and when we visited it was fully booked... More

Had read reviews that mentioned the better atmosphere in cellar. Waitress, excellent English, jokingly reluctant (easier on her feet!) soon got us downstairs and the place quickly filled up. You have to like cheese to eat here as the menu consists of nearly all cheese dishes. Fondue, raclette, tartiflette etc. Great feeling about the place and the fondue we had... More

Found this hidden gem on from Travel Advisor reviews! It was fun, delicious - got the traditional cheese - and we sat in the cellar, making it feel even more authentic! The owners/staff were so friendly - our whole meal for 2 with wine and tip was around $60 - can't beat that in Paris

We try to go to Pain Vin Fromage whenever we are in Paris. First, the owner and wait staff are extremely friendly. The waitress this time spoke perfect English. My wife and I enjoy raclette more than fondu. The raclette is not only delicious, but it is fun. The salads are some of the best we have had anywhere. Note:... More

We had a great raclette here - authentic and tasted wonderful. The service was great and the waitress very helpful at recommending dishes/ wine etc. Lovely, relaxing meal. Reasonably priced, I would recommend this restaurant

Together with my wife we were on a sightseeing trip to Paris and wanted to top it off with a nice authentic fondue dinner with red wine. After googling "best fondue in Paris" we found this restaurant straight away (would never have found just by walking around). It is true that you need to book in advance (1 day was... 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.
