Staff unfriendly , not customer oriented, dishes done without thought and heart. The pictures are good, but in reality... Not the case. Dommage

We visited on a rainy night in September after taking the metro and walking. Wish the weather had been better for exploring this area of Paris -Canal StvMartin. The bistro was small and friendly. The food was wonderful- everything had a lightness - you were eating so much but you did not feel stuffed. Had zucchini and onion soup, risotto... More

My husband and I took an anniversary trip last year and not only was this the best food of the trip, it may have been the best meal of my life. The sea snails were epic and my tuna steak was enormous, tender and melted in my mouth. By far the best value of any restaurant we ate at in... More

Received a recommendation for this place and thought I would see what it was all about. Initial impressions are that it is a small average family run place. But when you try the food you know it is something much more than that. The food was amazing and the service fantastic, especially for a Parisian restaurant. It is a bit... More

We made reservations for a Friday night and enjoyed our experience. My husband had the duck and I had the night special, Beef Wellington. We also had veal tartare and creme brulee. All dishes were absolutely satisfying. Our service was great. All this with a bottle of wine was around 100 euros. We would definitely go back.

We found this restaurant for lunch by chance after visiting the Canal Saint Martin. The food was incredible. The variety was great. The service very personal and attentive. We had a chicken dish; a duck dish and veal liver. It was as good as any restaurant we have been to.

We have visited Chez Marie Louise for the last 3-4 years dining at least once sometimes twice a year. Christophe has now sold the business and the decor has been updated. The chef is the same and so the food has not changed and is still delicious however it has definitely lost it's charm. The bar has changed, the old... More

Good food. good service with English menu and English speaking staff. On a Saturday lunch the place was packed, so go early or book a table.

I go to Paris ever so often from Belgium. I did research on many French language websites as well as here before deciding to go to this restaurant. The interior may be considered spartan by some but the detail of everything blends nicely into the entire scheme, including the restroom. Reservation was easy. We were welcomed by the owner herself.... More

Really good food, made to order on the premises and served by very friendly and attentive staff. The duck a l'orange and the tuna steak were incredible. For people who like desserts, it's heaven! Definitely worth adding to any Paris itinerary.

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.
