My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant. The formal feel with an old fashioned decor was fun. I had the French onion soup which was excellent. We shared an oyster sampler which was super fresh and tasted very "of the sea". My husband tried a fried pig's foot which was quite rich and tasty. For dessert we had the fantastic... More

I continue to return to this restaurant on each visit to Paris, even though it's virtually impossible for me, as a vegetarian, to eat there. They are kind enough to prepare a vegetarian plate for me, but it's just plain rice and steamed vegetables, and the price is 18 Euros for that! But others in my parties have always enjoyed... More

A great experience as ever, and well worth a visit. It is impossible to forget the history of this place. It remains special. My starter of black pudding ravioli was very enjoyable, but I must be honest and say that I struggled with my main of Tentation de Sainte-Antoine. Some of the pieces of meat were difficult to identify never... More

The charming atmosphere is of the 30's and its customers vary from business men, actors, inhabitants to tourists. Food is excellent as its quality: I ve eaten a medium rare veal liver which was a wonder (foie de veau persillé). Only for tourists who want to try pork cooking the French way but Do not hesitate! Staff is the real... More

I loved the onion soup - fabulously cheesy on top and the bread within nicely soaked up the soup. Delicious. The service was good and we had a pleasant meal. There is a "but", though. We have been going to Au Pied de Cochon for many years and always look forward to it on our trips to Paris, usually going... More

Beautiful aesthetic-- very French. The cocktails are amazing, the kir royale is especially good. The sauce with the pork knuckles is a creamy hollandaise, couldn't recommend this restaurant enough

This place is apparently an institution and the only 24 hour restaurant in Paris? I went since it was near my hotel and it was fine! Service as one would expect in Paris, however the manger was very kind and inspired me to give a review. I would so go if you're nearby for a typical French meal!

Description
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.

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.
