came with the family, the waiters understand enough english to help if you can't speak french. the menu is extensive and quite filling. the surroundings are cute and warm. just the ideal place to take a break between activities

Honestly, avoid this place. The staff argues with each other in the dinning room with patrons present which is quite appalling indeed. Not only this, we had to wait approximately 45 minutes for our food and when we got it, the food was cold and the chicken we had was the consistency of a leather boot- overcooked! Apparently they had... More

I used to come for coffee at Cafe du Temple terrace next to Republique. We went once to have brunch with my wife. We got classic and simple food : eggs and bacon, pancakes with maple syrup, bread, pastries ... We especially enjoyed the quiet cosy atmosphere indoor with large and comfy seats, stone walls and exposed beams. It was... More

Even with the mentality that slow service is good service in France, was utterly disappointed with the experience at this restaurant. After having dinner there with a friend, I was surprised to see this place had such raving reviews. Perhaps it was just a very busy night, but we had to ask multiple times for just about everything on the... More

Good food, good service, great location and we'd have gone back if it wasn't for the numerous Parisienne Restaurants of similar quality. An eclectic menu with a good choice of starters, main courses and desserts. Great Bo Ban and the Ile Flottante went down a treat with one of us but not so another. Personal taste buds me thinks.

We visited and enjoyed some nice drinks and some decent food. The service was very good and very friendly and all drinks and food was highly enjoyed. Not badly priced either.

Great staff and excellent service. The menu was rather sparse but what they had was worth the money.

We had breakfast on a couple of occasions at the Cafe du Temple whilst staying in Paris. We didn't want anything lavish and they offered a lovely simple breakfast, with good service. We also had drinks one evening and the atmosphere was very nice, and again, service was very good.

We went in for lunch , spoke perfect French, and the very young waitress who evidently wanted to practice English insulted our French (learned in France by the way), took our drink order, then completely ignored us. Eventually she came to take our food order and we asked for our drink order first. We shouldn't have done that... she disappeared... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighbourhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.
