What to add to the comments already made? Yes, you're sitting next to other diners at the same table (they have only one table for two and almost impossible to book). However, this is much less of a problem than one might think and there's...More

Visited here recently for the 2nd time in 5 years. Food has gone downhill. Steak was so tough and barely edible. Skate was awful (dry and not thinly sliced as expected). Atmosphere is cozy and staff is nice but food needs improvement

It’s a home-cook style restaurant in the parisian style. You sit very close to one another, get wine by the bottle and you pay for how much you drink. The menu is largely meat-based and is as good as it gets! Meat is great, atmosphere...More

We had a memorable night at Chez Denise. The food was good but be warned this places specialises in offal. The menu is written on a blackboard and even though we don’t speak French with the help of our cellphones to translate we managed to...More

This place, also known for the regulars as the "Tour de Montlhery" is usually crowded so you better make a reservation. The ambience and the cuisine are typical of a French "bistrot" . The portions are huge, you can share some of them especially the...More

We wandered in late on a Friday night at prime dinner time without a reservation after spending the day at the Louvre. We were seated right away at a comfortable table. We spoke very rudimentary French to ask for seats and to place our order,...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
