“Great setting, OK food”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Les Halles gets five stars for delightful design of repurposed furniture and decorations. The food was not so creative, getting three stars. Hence the fours star average.
In a neighborhood of high tech start-ups, Les Halles is a welcomed alternative to the industrialized Eurest slop.
We had the steak and salads. They were only OK, but we weren't here just for the food. The large table for our group of six was appreciated for conversation that included everyone.

“Go for the moules et frites”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

A nice place for a dinner with friends, make sure to book a table, it gets quite packed every evening. The best dish are moules et frites, the rest of the food is OK, but nothing fancy.

“Have the lunch special”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Geared up for rapid turnover of freshly prepared food this is a great place for lunch. Good quality at fair prices (by Zürich standards)

“Great entourage, food is okay”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I loved the "living room" feel of this place. It's very hip and trendy yet chaotic and unorganised.
There are bikes hanging from the ceiling and there is a football table. It was very crowded, mostly with 30-something people

The food was okay. I had a pasta but I thought it was too salty.
Prices are pretty high considering that you have to order the food yourself at the bar and then get a drink at another bar. But it struck me that all food is priced ridiculousy high in Zurich so that might just be their standard.

LEs Halles is right in front of tramstop Schiffbau, so easy to get to.

“dirty bar with unfriendly staff”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

The atmosphere is trying to reproduce old french style, but they completely destroyed the idea, it's very dirty, prices are high, the food quality is second rate and the service even less. Despite of the shop with a good wine almost inside this place they serve really bad wine.
