One of the best burgers ever. The service was quick and the food was served hot. Generous portions of the ravioli. The waiter, Pierre offered to find us a table for our large group. The menu was in both English and French.

I rated this 4 based on the overall impression of food, service, ambiance. I had the Omelette - which was very generous in size. I had chosen the omelette with ham, the ham was not good - too salty, so I ate everything but the...More

Stopped for a late lunch after an art show at Centre Pompidou. Nice sampling plate with charcuterie and cheeses from Auvergne (region in the center of France). A glass of Bourgueil with it. Wonderful.

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
