Nice place, excellent service and delicious food. Clean and elegant presentation of the dishes. Just a bit pricey but still recommended.

It's a hip little spot, where you can either go with a basic menu or go on the higher priced `a la carte selection. It's hidden away and has a nice atmosphere, and the food is really good. I would say, however, that the prices are getitng up there for what is really a small amount of food, even on... More

As we walked from Gare du Nord to our hotel on the St. Martin Canal, we passed Les Enfants Perdus at lunchtime. It was a place where everyone seemed to be enjoying their food, so we booked for dinner. And it was great. The reception was warm and welcoming. The service was attentive and helpful with ordering. We were in... More

My husband and I discovered this delightful restaurant while exploring the St Martin canal area near the Gare de l'Est! It looked to be a refuge from a cold winter evening in a fairly quiet street and, although very full, there was a table for two by the window! Moments later we were ensconced and contemplating the wonderful menu! The... More

We asked the hotel where they recommended we eat given it was already 2100 and we were given this as an option. Very nice place tucked away at the end of a street, the staff was very friendly and attentive. My fiance ordered the chicken entree which was incredible, I ordered the trout and wasn't thrilled but this is purely... More

Lovely little restaurant, two guys serving were absolutely fabulous. They were really friendly and made us feel at ease talking in English due to our woeful French skills! The food was really tasty and plenty of it. Would definitely go back, a really warm feeling place.

I absolutely loved this place. Dined here with four of my friends. Had cocktails first as we waited for a table. It was superb. The staff are casual, welcoming and very helpful. The food was really fantastic. Dessert portions were quite large so perhaps one between two would suffice. I just cannot wait to go back to this Restaurant again... More

A local friend brought us here. It was a good choice. An intimate out of the way bistro in the Canal St. Martin area, we had very good service and very good food. Several of us had cod, which was beautifully presented and very tasty. The starters were also of high quality. The prices were about right for a bistro... More

We searched for the "best brunch in Paris" and this came up - it absolutely lived up to the reputation and we spent a very pleasant two and a half hours over a three course experience. The food was good, plentiful and very creative but you need to come early (11:30) or book as it fills up very quickly. This... More

I was walking around looking for a decent restaurant and I ended up reading Les Enfants Perdus' lunch menu. Nicely designed menu had a lot to taste. However cod fish with risotto sounded tasty to me. I immediately ordered it and absolutely loved it. The same night I wanted my wife to taste this restaurant's food as well. However we... More

Staying in Canal Saint-Martin

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. 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.
