Watched Olivier De Benoist's show (all in french). It was very funny. Was not expecting to laugh that much. I knew he was funny, but was not sure he would have enough material for an entire hour. Highly recommended if you are fluent in french and have basic knowledge of french culture and politics. P.S. Arrive 30 minutes in advance... More

Good food, nice atmosphere. I did catch the waiter (who tested my passing french earlier in the meal), charge me for two meals that my family did not order. An additional 30 euros on our lunch bill that I insisted they remove. The manager and the waiter both colluded to hide the bill from me, and request payment. When I... More

I have eaten here several times, always sitting by the windows looking out upon the street. This is close to the train station so all kinds of people are seen. The service is excellent, as is the food, especially the oysters and seafood specialties. It's usually busy, but well worth the visit.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood 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 splendour. This neighbourhood 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.
