This is a very popular restaurant with all nationalities of tourists. We sat next to Swiss, American & Korean travellers during the evening. Foie Gras, in many forms, is a house speciality but sharing 6 snails was a popular choice - to try them out! We ate langoustine with delicious mint purée and smoked salmon with beetroot, both good.

This is one of my favorite restaurant in Paris. I could say that it is the best duck and Foir gras in town with favorable budget. The service is also good. Should not miss this place. I will visit here every time I visit Paris definitely.

The restaurant is small but so busy. Food is delicious and service is not as quick as looks like short-handed.

I live in Paris and eat here often. My daughter and son-in-law and I decided that if it were our last meal on earth - this is where we'd eat. The foie gras and the ravioli....

We stopped in after a long day of shopping for lunch and to share a bottle of wine on a friend's recommendation. The restaurant is cozy and unassuming. The staff was friendly and was patient and helpful while we did our best to order in French. I enjoyed a pork belly dish that melted in your mouth. I can't stop... More

We dropped in for lunch as the restaurant looks quite plush from outside so we had high expectations, however we were then seated in a passageway leading to the staff preparation area. The tables are packed in which isn't all that unusual in Paris, however the only way I could take my seat was to pull out the table as... More

We are more like budget travellers. We found this restaurant affordable with exceptional quality. I had pan seared foie gras with escargo and my husband had some kind of duck confit. We love that dinner and couldn't stopping talking about it until now. This restaurant is by far the best food we had in Paris. Side note: we are not... More

This is a place where I visit every time I am in Paris. Menu is always delightful at a very reasonable price. Friendly staff, superb service. Reservation is a must. Do stop by their gourmet shop next door for exceptionally well prepared foie gras / ham to take home.

Located several blocks north of Les Halles, this tiny store/bistro is a reservation must. The value/quality ratio is remarkable. The atmosphere is informal and relaxed. Try the Parmentier de canard which is more like a duck shepard's pie. The salads and deserts were perfect and the house wines are an absolute steal. Truly worthy of a visit.

We visit the restaurant whenever we are in Paris and have never been disappointed. It is typically small so plan ahead or visit off peak hours. Service is always helpful and friendly and the food is very good, particularly the foie gras and duck dishes, and their onion soup. Good wine selection at reasonable prices. Restaurant is very relaxed (not... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood 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.
