Nice experience

For €80 fondue, ham, plate of cheeses, dessert and a 1/2 bottle of win the place is very good. Our waiter (a woman) was excellent and friendly. If you are not an expert with cheeses they will help you but the results are not guaranteed as these are depended on personal flavors. Second time here... read more

After looking on trip advisor for local places to eat during our 3 day stay we chose here based upon the good reviews. What a lovely restaurant and they have a lovely exposed brick eating area downstairs. The food was delicious and would definitely return. Very helpful English speaking waiters!

I went there During my stay in Paris and it was absolutely the best dinner I had in town The rustic atmosphere of the basement where we had the dinner was lovely. The waitress was really kind with us and patient in explaining the menu and how to deal with the raclette and fondue machines. The food: oh my God!!... More

Came to Paris for a short break with a friend and spotted this place in the day while wandering around. Came back in the evening without a booking and they managed to squeeze us in downstairs - and glad they did. The food was fantastic, fondue at its best but it was the service that really made the difference, the... More

This restaurant is a must visit if you like bread, cheese and wine. Its very atmospheric in this cave like space below street level. The cheese and wine was incredible. We had a raclette to share and a selection of cheeses which were recommended to us by our waiter. I can't recommend this place anymore. We were really tempted to... More

This restaurant is a typical restaurant for people that loves cheese. It is a small restaurant but very nice. The food is base on cheese and for cheese lovers could be a problem to choose because there is in the menu list a list of cheese from all over France. The fondue is excellent and there are various type. The... More

Dinky tucked away restaurant I don't think you would find without a cab. So cute and cosy inside (tables maybe a little close, but that didn't ruin it) amazing fondue- we had the Roquefort one with unlimited dipping bread and chose the mixed meats for dipping too. Wine was very good as was the atmosphere. I guess it's that saying... More

We went to this little place going for a great fondue, which we received..but were a little disappointed at the dipping options, perhaps our ignorance of true fondue. Bread or potatoes are the only options, whereas we were just hankering for a plate of fresh vegetables...ended up feeling a little bloated. Great atmosphere downstairs and amazing service, just prepare yourself... More

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.
