Great place. Well priced in the Les Halles area and have a great Lobster dining experience in the Summertime. Fashion and music colleagues always pay a visit when in the City of Light.

Excellent! This is one of my favourite haunts in Paris and I always return here whether with my other half or with friends. The waiters are full of banter, speak surprisingly good English for the non-French speakers, and are always ready to help with advice. This is not somewhere one eats for a salad but the food and wine are... More

We had wonderful seafood here in September 2015 after an organ concert across the street at St. eustache. We enjoyed it so much we returned in August 2016. We ordered oysters and a pork entree. Fine wine list. The maitre d' was memorable, funny, thanked us for coming back and asked us to write something in Trip Advisor. No bribes,... More

We reserved for 6pm on a Monday and walked in to a full and buzzing ground floor. We were squeezed into a window table and our neighbours handed us their menus! Although a 20€ two course menu is supposed to be available until 6.30pm, we heard the same neighbours, a French couple, ask for it, only for the waiter to... More

This place takes on a mythical status as a Parisian institution for our family's get-togethers in the wee hours of the morning for plateau de fruits de mer, andouilette, soupe à l'oignon, etc. This day, being in the neighborhood, we dropped by for lunch. The area is in full construction for the re-imagined Less Halles, and the foot traffic has... More

We went here for dinner. Our service was extremely slow and the food was average (except for the French Onion Soup which was great). A server spilled a large plate of food directly next to our table and did not apologize. My steak was very average for 30 Euros. Girlfriends meal was plain an lacked flavor. They were also out...

The wait staff here was great, got us right in and we were starving. The waiter recommend the cheaper wine as being better (who does that?) and it was perfect for out meal. The food was cooked to perfection as well.

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.
