A Parisian friend recommended it, with the caveat that was expensive... and open 24 hours. I liked the decor and the service was very good. The escargots were rubbery but still fun to eat. A good place to experience Paris.

We read about this restaurant in the gastronomic diary of the famous Serbian composer and gourmand Voki Kostić (son of Aleksandar and Smilja, both French-educated medical doctors and recipients of Legion d'honeur) who described vividly in it how he have eaten three nights in a raw in "Au pied de cochon". So we have to visit it and try the... More

No self-respecting French person in sight—and quite rightly. Limited and overpriced menu, unless you're actually after fried pigs feet – which I didn't see anyone eating. Combination of traditional seafood and meat dishes. The fish platters looked okay, but pricey. Lovely interior and location near the church of Saint Eustache. Server was a gentleman who tried his best to get... More

Great place for after party meal, because the restaurant is open 24/7. Very polite service and outstanding onion soup but the beef tatar was overpriced to its quality. The portion of tatar costs 23€ and unfortunately its not worth it. But again , good to go there to have this onionsoup, especially after a good party! ;)

This place was recommended by our hotel for a late dinner. The place was busy and from the name Pork is the name of the game. The menu was good and there are all sorts of pork meals. They also do seafood and the platters that were coming in looked amazing. The restaurant is fairly local but there are a... More

After my personal visits to Paris, this restaurant is one of my favorites of all, I consider one the most traditional in architecture and best food you could eat in terms of quality, Price range and service. After eating a delicious onion soup, we had each one of us the seashells, a gourmet meal good enough to any special palate,... More

I had been walking my dog round St Eustache and les Halles this afternoon, not having eaten since 6 am. There was the Pied de Cochon - a restaurant I have, if not avoided, simply ignored since residing in Paris 9 years ago. I noticed that onion soup was on the menu and decided, hope over experience, to give it... More

My wife said we had to go here because they are known to have the best French Onion Soup in Paris. We certainly believe that to be true now. It's really good and the best I've ever tasted. We found the staff to be fun loving and with a great and welcoming sense of humor. I enjoyed the slow cooked... More

We came here in the recommendation from the hotel and we were not disappointed. We were looking for the best French Onion Soup in Paris and we think we found it ! A plentiful serve of very hearty soup with a generous top of golden toasted cheese . Another stand out was the roasted pork chop for two . Also... More

Every time I am in Paris I go to this restaurant and really enjoyed it every single time. The staff was extremely warm and welcoming. The meal was great. I enjoyed my escargot and a "pied de cochon". Overall an excellent place - will certainly love to return!

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.
