Description: 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.

“Just so so meal”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

My wife's friend suggested this resturant to us with the famous pig trotter. But to my dispointing, the meal didn't show any supprise. It is just the normal meal in my Paris tour but the most expensive one. ????????????????? ?????? ????.

“C'etait mauvais! Froid! Arrogant! Bah!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Service OK, i'll give you that. Food; bad, cold, tasteless and, fat. Overpriced. How ever did they became famous? Bearnaise tastes like mayonaise. No vinaigrette on my salad. . Never, never again.

Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great restaurant, open 24 hors a day and always full!
The enviroment is a little noisy but for sure it is woth to go! I've been several time in the past and definitely is a must to do in Paris every time I go!
Prices a little expensive (around 60-70Euro Each person)

“Stunning Interior Matches Service & Food”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This has been a famous restaurant in the Des Halles area since 1947. Arrive before 6:30pm and enjoy the special of the day at a reduced price. The food was spectacular as was the service. At the end of your meal you receive little pink Meringue piggies. The restaurant interior is exquisite. Sadly the outdoor space is taken over by smokers who puff like chimneys making it almost impossible for non smokers to sit on the terrace.

“Great food, but the service lacks a little bit Of dedication for the price.”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Nothing sucks more than a mean waiter who does not want to explain the special of the day just because we were tourists.
