My husband and I had dinner at this beautifully styled cafe/restaurant and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The owner of the restaurant is very friendly and also suggested tips for our visit in the city. The food was delicious and decently priced (Price for 2 including food and drinks is around INR2,000 or 25-30EUR) Must visit to get a good feel... More

Café le Bistro looks like a million other Paris cafés - sit inside, sit on the pavement. tt's up to you. Unpretentious, excellent service and a menu just concentrating on a core of signature dishes. There was a lot to like about this location except the cut of beef was as tough as old boots. Chewing it seemed to make... More

With 3 other girlfriends, we originally planned to have brunch at Holly belly next door but the queue was terrible so we moved to the Bistro. The decor is classic Parisian bistro and so is the atmosphere. Although the cafe was packed, we were able to have a nice table by the window and enjoy the three hours we spent... More

We had a sandwish poulet bacon (8euro!) and a croque madame, they were very good. Then we had the cheesecake and 'vitamine c' juice, also very tasteful. We went there on a Saturday and it was a bit busy. If you aren't in a rush and searching for a good breakfast, lunch or snack, is this a very cosy place... More

No idea what the food was like. Waited nearly fifteen minutes to receive a menu, staff seemed annoyed that we wanted to eat dinner there! Awful service. Left after we became sick of waiting.

I went there the last October with my friend, the coffee was near from the hotel we stayed so we decided to tried it one day. Was AMAZING, the place is beautiful, the view is beautiful, the service was so good. I don't have anything bad to say about this place. The first day we went to eat breakfast but... More

Fairly quiet so fast service. Pretty good food but the tables were small and there were too many in my opinion so it felt rather cramped.

This place was amazing! It had a great customer service, very friendly waiters there but also amazing food. We had brunch and enjoyed a delicious coffee and juice, tasty French bakery, eggs, samon and prawns and fruit and yoghurt. All for 22 euros!. Would love to go back :)

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.

The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighborhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
