We ate here a week ago, remembering how good the onion soup was 18 years ago. The service was terrible. There were plenty of seats inside and they insisted of seating us outside in the smoking section. The service was slow. The food not as...More

My friend and I had a good time there. It’s a bit pricy but worth it. Nice location in Châtelet away from cars traffic. Good vibes on the terrace. Marcel will definitively put a smile on your face!

Wanted to try this nose to tail approach to cooking. Thought the boudin noir terrine was incredibly tasty with unlimited pickles to go with it. Had the pied de Cochon main - knew it would be a bit more left-field but it was probably a...More

Had dinner at au pied de Couchon. Food was okay but not exceptional. Had many better value meals in our 10 day trip across France.

Great Food - Authentic French popular with locals. Very busy, you almost certainly need a reservation, a large number of people waiting to be seated. Loved the French Onion Soup. The Filet Mignon with pepper corn sauce was amazing. Also enjoyed the escargot and bone...More

The place has lost its glamour. Normal food, normal service, high prices: no excellence anymore. Forget it! A lot of better palces in paris at very lower cost, indeed!

The restaurant is a typical Parisian restaurant. The food was great and the ambience is very nice. The service was a bit slow, but worth the wait. You must try the escargot. The theme of the restaurant is Pork so I had the pork filet...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

If you search for their name in Google they actually have an English menu that lists what they have to offer. Not much for vegetarians that I can see, unless they eat seafood?

The ovens at Au Pied de Cochon were fired up in 1946 and they have never been turned off since. Au Pied de Cochon is a Paris institution, very near the Centre Pompidou, on your way from shopping the first arrondissement to the sightseeing the Marais. It is decorated with a profusion of Art Nouveau stylistic touches, like mirrors, fantastic chandeliers, paintings of lovely ladies. There is also an enticing terrace, and, as it's open 24/7, you can come in anytime for a meal and to watch the world go by. Menu is French. Try starter of oysters of several types and sizes, house special main course of pig's trotter stuffed with duck liver and pudding of babas au rhum.
