We've been to this restaurant many times in the past, but it has been worse each time. We go back hoping to recapture the pleasure of past meals. Except for the oysters, which can be found in most good restaurants in Paris, the meal was in the bottom decile. The service was worse than the food. Fortunately for them, a... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us because of the soup, and let me tell you, if you like French Onion Soup then this must not be missed; best I have ever tasted. We also ordered the Sea Bass, a Ham dish, and the Chicken; all were very good. The atmosphere is very 1920's,the staff friendly and professional, and the... More

While this restaurant specializes in pork, and that is what my husband had and enjoyed, their seafood is also very good. I have always wanted a seafood tower all to myself but often they include oysters which I am not a fan of. This tower was perfect - lobster, crab, prawns, shrimp and langoustines. I had this as my entrée... More

Very frindly and attentive service. Oysters were excellent, filet of bar very good as well as the big roasted pig foot! Desserts are very (too) generous, baba au rhum excellent and the crêpes flambées perfect!

Met some good friends for dinner our first night in Paris. The service was a little spotty as they seemed to be overwhelmed during the dinner rush. It was hard to get the attention of the waiters to take our drink and dinner order. Took a long time to get drinks. The food was good but not spectacular. Instead of... More

This place, unsurprisingly, specialized in hamhocks and other delicious pig bits, but we decided to eat here after passing their gorgeous seafood counter on the street. I was particularly drawn to their huge langoustines. In the US, langoustines are usually just really big shrimp, but in Europe, and in reality, they are more like a very small lobster. They have...

Everything was excellent: food, wine, atmosphere. Try their "Au Pied de Cochon. There is also a kids menu at an affordable price.

If you are interested in a very nice meal with excellent service, lovely street side oysters.. Not a discount eatery but well worth the price. Really, try the pig shaped desert, so yummy.

They say that Julia Child went here for onion soup! That is what they are using to attract tourists! But I am certain she would NOT enjoy this onion soup! It was an insipid broth, filled with bread and not much cheese. The rest of the meal was mediocre and way over-priced for the quality! The restaurant was full but... More

Everything about this place is wonderful - the location, service, food, etc. It's a bit far from the underground Les Halles, but you should try it ! The menu was varied and the wine list perfect, the ambience should be even more impressive, if that is possible!

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.
