What a wonderful experience! The food was outstanding, the service the best ever!! I could not find one thing wrong with this restaurant. My husband had the steak and I had chicken and potatoes, sounds ordinary, but not at this restaurant. I have to make mention of our waiter, he was wonderful, personable and attentive, we wanted to take him... More

We had a great meal, but the waiter was the best. He kept us laughing. We had no reservation on a Friday night and were seated after a short wait. Hostess was great and very pleasant. Very elegant decor. Would highly recommend.

We were welcomed by a very nice young lady which was a very good first impression, the same young lady found time to chat with us in English on leaving which again leaves a good impression. We had intended to try the speciality pigs trotters but our waiter was kind enough to advise us that as we had not had... More

One of a chain of five seafood restaurants in central Paris, open 24X7. The Plateau de Fruits de Mer is superb, if a tad expensive (especially if you add the optional lobster)

I had heard so much about this Parisien institution at Les Halles. Unfortunately, it turned out to cater more for tourists than locals. Unless you ordered the good value set menu, ala carte was pricey and meagre in value. In the sweltering heat, one didn't want to stuff themselves. I made the mistake of ordering some pate and was served... More

If the Euro was $1.40 to the dollar I'd be disapponted but since its not - this was a good place to spend the last night of our trip. Place is a Paris classic - has waiters, and wait staff and the wine steward and the guy who brings the bill - and very good onion soup - and a... More

We took our kids here and even though no kids menu, they were very accommodating for them. They had the French onion soup. No salads on the menu so if you are looking for fiber in your diet, this isn't the place. The mussels and the duck confit were fantastic. The service and food overall, great. Would recommend.

We are always late in Paris where kitchens tipically close at 10. We end up a lot of times here, the food is always the same, quality stable and dependable. Great Foie and great profiteroles, sometimes a grumpy waiter due to the exacting 24 hour shifts.

Thank Remberto U

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.
