I ate here tonight with my friends; we loved it! I compared it to the restaurant version of a tiny house. I mean that in the best way possible. They have done so much with a small space and it's so cute. The food was also quite good and the service was great. I would definitely eat here again and... More

We were three people on a casual business dinner and we had three different starters, entrees and desserts. They were all god, no doubt about that. Lots of taste and variations; I guess this is some kind of French-Asian fusion kitchen. Note: If you have cheese for dessert pick one and split. It's great cheese but far to much for... More

We adore this local restaurant in the Second that's a little Alchemy, a little traditional and full of small surprises that have big impact.

I loved this place. At first, the manager was very funny - had us all laughing! The food was delicious and the decor was quirky and cool. I'd go back for sure! All 9 of us loved the meal and ambiance.

This restaurant is one of the typical spots where real Parisians come to enjoy their lunch-break. The menu changes every week and is simply very original and tasty. The food is home made and really good for the price you pay. We will definitely go back more often!

This is the first time I write a one star review. Do not spend your hard earned money here, they really do not deserve it! We wanted a glass of wine and a dessert. Found this place by chance, looked really cozy and we wanted to sit down and enjoy Paris and relax. When they understood that we didn't want... More

Had our best lunch of the whole trip on our last day in Paris. I had creamed chickpea soup with mint pistou, and my colleague had stir fry chicken, followed by excellent passion fruit meringue, all washed down with our favourite Parisian drink - Spritz! Very reasonable, menu in English, and good location.

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.
