My husband and I were so excited to try this based on the reviews. Maybe my expectations were to high. We chose the the beef fondue cooked in red wine based on past reviews. The beef was well cut, had no fat, and the portions were very large. The issue was the red wine fondue had no taste. The beef... More

This was our best meal in Paris! Don't miss this place if you're staying near Rue Montorgueil (or even if you're not...). The concept here is fondue or raclette. We didn't try the fondue, although it did look fun, because we were thrilled to find raclette on a menu. If you're not familiar with it, you get a plate of... More

Chose this restaurant based on reviews I read and it was excellent! So glad we called ahead because it was busy and they had to turn people away. Classic fondu and the staff was extremely friendly!

Good option for cheese fondues. Be aware that food quantity is large so you should either be very hungry or consider sharing the main course. Service is attentive but was insufficient to attend all the tables.

Location: It is located in the 4th arrondissement in a quite area. When you walk in you are taken into an old wine cellar which has been converted into a nice restaurant. The setting is great for a romantic night out or a fun night with friends. People: They are very friendly, and make great suggestions as to what food... More

We had the raclette at Pain Vin Fromage and it was fine but not amazing. The restaurant was quiet and a bit brightly lit. I thought the portions was a bit stingy too.

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...

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.
