Excellent dinner with friends - great quality, original menu with vegetarian options and good service

Menu is very limited but that’s not a big deal. The service is very good. I must have caught them on an off night in the kitchen. Chicken was very over cooked, dry and not an interesting dish. The entree was refreshing and simple. The...dessert was simple and the tart crust was dried out. Most of my disappointment comes from the red wine being stored on shelves in a non air conditioned space and then being served right off the shelf. This is common throughout France. They understood that my Red needed to be chilled to take the edge off and got right on it, but any restaurant that doesn’t take temperatures into consideration for their wine storage isn’t serious.More

We were 8 for dinner and enjoyed our time. The new chef reveals its talents in the pure Pirouette style: authentic while sophisticated. The team is great and attentive and the safety anti-COVID very well implemented. Last but not least, wine list is full of...diversity.More

second time ; amazing food, amazing service, amazing price. This is what Paris has best to offer in terms of quality/value food. All dishes gave me this « wow » effect. I recommend it 1000%. The menu at 39€ (starter, main, desert) is a true deal.

Excellent food with modern interior!! As it was our family’s birthday, we made a reservation for lunch and asked for a message on plate. Turns out, unbelievably, they wrote happy birthday in our lanaguage which impressed us so much!! Merci for wonderful food and service!!

Pirouette is a restaurant that never lets you down- we usually eat ale carte Today we tried the lunch menu which was superb So either way it’s a restaurant to visit over and over

Pirouette was one of the restaurants recommended by our Airbnb host in the Les Halles neighborhood. After doing a bit of research on TripAdvisor, we narrowed our choice down to Pirouette for a dinner at the end of November. And, boy, were we not disappointed!...It's a lovely space with floor-to-ceiling windows all along the front. As other reviewers have commented, the service at the restaurant is outstanding – no need to worry about a Parisian snotty attitude here. (I also like the fact that the restaurant’s web site posts a nice photo of all the servers.) While it is always helpful to say “s'il vous plaît” and “merci,” all the servers had a decent command of English. All our dishes were quite yummy. For our starters, we had the marinated scallops and the “pot-au-feu” raviole – and we had for our main dishes the rump of veal and the wild duck. All were excellent choices. Wine was very reasonably priced – don’t hesitate to ask the server for a recommendation if you need help picking out a wine. Would definitely return here for a meal if we’re ever back in the Les Halles neighborhood!More

The new chef (he has been there about 3 years I think) is very creative and his approach to food is both visually and appetizingly delicious. He offers 4 entrées, 4 plats and 4 desserts, usually. If you do not speak French, there is a...menu in English. The waiters also know enough English to explain the food in detail. The restaurant has a welcoming, open feel. One is not hurried. We had an enjoyable, delicious evening at Pirouette and I would return with pleasure.More

It is a bit expensive but well worth it considering the quality of the ingredients. Excellent sercvice. The chef himself takes turns to serve the tables. After figuring out the dishes and ingredients on Google, a sweet waitress asked us politely if we desired an...English menu, but we refused, because we spoke the language and we wanted to become French cuisine connaisseurs. Even if a tasting menu is not asked, an explanation of the ingredients is given for every course meal. Their desserts are "formidable"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
