Traditional escargot was great!! We ordered more. The truffle butter escargot was a little lack lustre... flavour didn't compare to the traditional garlic butter and herb. We are at 5:30 and it was pretty much empty - but it was a great night with great service.

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge when we told him we wanted to eat good escargot. L'escargot Montorgueil is know for their snails so we made a reservation for dinner which I highly recommend because they were packed that evening. The escargot was good not quite amazing and we tried 3 of the 5-6 different kind... More

We had wonderful dinner at this restaurant tonight! Had mixed expectations after reading reviews, but the place, food and service exceeded expectations :) Interior is really beautiful and dinner was delicious. We had traditional escargot's as a starter with Burgundy white wine recommended by menu - great match! I had Entrecôte with homemade fried potatoes and Bernaise sauce, ordered some... More

We started coming here in 1980 and have always returned when in Paris. The service was great but the escargot were tough and not nearly enough sauce. The bread they serve with the escargot is way too sweet in our opinion. We prefer baguettes. The plats were just OK. We may have hit a bad night. For this trip to... More

Came here for dinner, it was recommended by friends. I'd advise you make a reservation beforehand. 4 adults plus a child, the total was less then €200. Starters, main course and a bottle of nice French wine. They have a variety of snails. We sent for half dozen of traditional and half dozen of of something else. We also had... More

This restaurant is one of the most historic in Paris. It means a lot of tourists but I for one thing the charge of tourist trap is misplaced. We ate excellent snails and fillet. The waiter who could not have been more helpful competed with his bad English with my bad French. It was charming. I would reccomend booking as... More

It is a very very very terrible experience!! It was a day that was my friends' birthday, we chose to this restaurant to have dinner and celebrate the birthday. However, we waited so long time to order the menu and nobody did service to us.And the waitress gave the dishes very slowly, more angry was that the waitress told us... More

We've spent a wonderful dinner in L'Escargot - perfect food and wine! Especially I recommend salad with artichoke and rasins - delicious cussin!

I had very tasty food here, I really enjoyed it and the atmosphere, a must if you are in Paris! It is a bit dark inside (everything is black) but your taste-buds will not regret it!

Restaurant was nice in terms of traditional and historic 1832 French Ambiance, and most unfortunately it SCREECHINGLY STOPS there! As we walked into a virtually empty restaurant at 6pm on a Monday rainy February night, we were told to sit in an overheated covered area between the street and the restaurant. A quick glance inside the restaurant, we noticed there... More

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.
