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.

We had dinner here whilst visiting with friends who live on the outskirts of Paris, and had a fantastic time. You cannot miss this building and it's vivid color scheme draws you in from afar. We went here based on the recommendation from our friends and had a selection of charcuterie as well as main dishes like pigs foot and... More

Loved the food..it was so different but still had that quintessential french base. The maitre d' was terrific and even gave us complimentary cocktails on the night. He then kept pouring my wine glass even though I only asked for one glass. What a legend! He kept the kids entertained and made us laugh with his quirky French humour. Well... More

This famous restaurant never closes, which is rare for Paris. There is always a varied selection on the menu. The shellfish are fresh and of high quality. The staff are very friendly as are the patrons. Tourists make a point of eating here, as it's written up in many guide books. It is good value for your money, but remember... More

Don't order the duck confit. We had it several other places on our tour of France and it was great. Here it was rubbery. The waiters were clearly novices but well meaning and tried really hard. There were only 2 or 3 serving 40 of us on the third floor. Salad was outstanding and the fruit salad like what you... More

Fantastic, I found this diamond of a place after the "Night bus tour of Paris' I was looking for a takeaway and I came across this 24/7 restaurant, absolutely stunning building, cozy table settings, a great catch after midnight and reasonable prices too. I ordered from the 'Oscars' special menu and dared to try the snails for starter, I'm so... More

Recommended by a hotel we weren't even staying in. This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise in every way. Cheerfully seated the 6 of us without a reservation. Service was friendly and efficient. All the food was superb. The onion soup was probably the best ever. The entire experience through desert was wonderful. Not cheap, but standard for what ordered.

This is one of THE brasseries of Paris. It's not cheap but service is excellent . If you like oysters and price is not an issue you will be delighted. The pork knuckle is delicious too. Forget the chicken , steak and fish dishes ... The creme brulee desert is just average , the cheese plate ok, and the 3... More

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.
