This restaurant is simply the worse I ever ate in. It was really terrible! Avoid it what ever it takes. We left after a few bites, leaving the food on the table... They deserve to close! You have so many good options elsewhere, don't waste your time and money.

Very crowded! Better reserve table in advance. Honestly, sangria is not as good as I expected. But the tapas are exceptionally yummy. Seafood plate is really yummy, especially the prawn, a must try dish. Waiters are too busy so don't expect good service. Price is reasonable. Not a grand type of restaurant, don't expect good interior decoration.

A kind of tapas bar in a nice area with a very nice decoration. The tapas are basic but there is a good enough choice. Service is cool.

I stopped by here with family for a quick drink - it was situated in a really good location and away from the main roads. The staff were friendly and served us quickly. We only had wine but it was very expensive compared to other places we went to in Paris. The bathrooms weren't very nice as well but very... More

We were walking towards the Place de Vosges when it started rainging, so we ducked in here for a drink. very nice looking place, with heaters outside. We ordered probably the most expensive Sangria in the world, with the Rioja coming in as the second most expensive, but the drinks were nice and the service pleasant. We even got a... More

Went there last night with a big group of friends - party of 7. Easy to do after making a reservation on La Fourchette (The Fork). We each picked something on the first go-round (tortilla, meat skewers, anchovies [nice fresh ones, not canned], sardines, bacalao balls, fried clamar, and a nice bottle of rosé. (OK, does wine count as the... More

We were walking around the Marais hungry at lunchtime and chose this place because there were several old French men having lunch. Wow. The mixed seafood a la plancha was a total treat, as was the cold tapas platter and pitcher of sangria. Not cheap (it's in the Marais, after all), but everything was fresh, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented.... More

Small very busy tapas restaurant near to Place des Vosges. Staff are friendly and there's a lively atmosphere. Despite how busy it has been every time I've visited, I have never felt rushed by the staff. Food is very tasty and the Spanish omelette is potentially the best I've ever tasted! We ordered a selection of small tapas dishes to... More

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
