We already had dinner in three different restaurants here and always had an excellent evening and a very good meal each time. The last time in july we could sit outside on a warm evening on this lively place. Highly recommended.

The small and quiet square owes its name to the market that was established here in 1784 at the site of the former convent of Saint Catherine. This charming place offers a feeling of a long gone, old Paris with its nice restaurants and cafes...More
