This quiet restaurant was neither bad nor great. The atmosphere was also not what one would expect in a Passage, feeling more like an alley. To add to the evening (and I can’t blame the restaurant) the two women next to us were speaking so loudly that we had trouble hearing each other. With just a few inches separating tables,... More

I love this restaurant. - The location: it is attached to a small theater in a small pedestrian street right in the middle of Paris. - The menu: is written on a board that the waiter brings to the table and goes explaining. - There is always a vegetarian meal among the 6-7 daily meals - They are all authentically...

Certamente o melhor restaurante da viagem. Fomos a alguns, mas neste a comida e o atendimento são maravilhosos. Altamente recomendado, fomos muito bem tratados e o preço foi justíssimo!!! Volto 1.000x se puder!!! Certainly, the best restaurant that we have been during our trip. The food and the service were wonderful, and the prize was very good too. We're going... More

My wife and I ate here a couple of years ago, and decided to go back with some friends who were staying in Paris with us recently. We certainly were not disappointed, as both the food and service were excellent. The fact that we arrived somewhat after the real lunchtime crowd meant that we virtually had the place to ourselves,... More

My husband and I are visiting Paris, the first time for both of us, staying in an apartment in the 1st Arrondissement, near Les Halles. We've been hitting the museums pretty hard and eating museum-café food. Not good. But we're tired, we haven't planned in advance, our French is not great so we're nervous about trying to make reservations for... More

I don't have much to add to the reviewer who found nothing special here, foodwise. But I wanted to help others who are trying to find this restaurant. The door marked "12" is not the door to the restaurant--it is a little further on into the passage. There is no name anywhere! Seems to be a good place for very... More

Fantastic salads, good quality food and nice selection of wines. The service is outstanding with great recommendations when you're unsure. Get there early to get a table outside in the lovely passage. You will not be disappointed!

This restaurant is located in the busy area around the Centre Pompidou, in the nice and relatively quiet Passage Molière. The quality of our food varied: for instance, my main course of roasted duck was excellent, but my three sips of watery gazpacho were a disappoiting starter. It's a student-type restaurant with pretty reasonable prices, but nothing special.

Thank Sendar

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
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 just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
