Delicious food: the onion soup was the best we've ever had. The 'bufala burger' was very good, and the homemade frites, which seem to be a rarity now, were quite nice, too. The wine was very reasonably priced. It has a small menu, but you should be able to find something that you'll like. Courtesy and pleasant service. I just... More

We visited this restaurant because it was the only one open in the neighborhood. Their terrace was really nice and their food was fine; nothing too fancy but good enough to satisfy empty stomachs.

Lovely lunch with a Creme Brulee with peach thyme to die for. I will certainly return next time in Paris.

We are no beef eaters so selection was quite limited. The chicken was tasteless and quite dry. The frites god knows how many times they have refried it? The tataki tuna was tasty but the noodles were way to salty and one dimensional. Conclusion a not so good experience in general.

The place is very nice and has a cool terrace which is idea when the weather is good. We had gaspacho, accras de morues, fish burger and a salad and everything was average or just above average.

We love this little spot! The waitresses are energetic and fun; very welcoming to everyone! We had a great lunch salad with fresh French bread and wine. It is a perfect stop for your trip to the Marais.

We were passing by thinking about a drink and were attracted by the large, bright windows and animated clientele ...There is a happy hour and you can pick up a nice discounted pint of blanche .. Good wine is served by the glass as well...... The waiters were very friendly and the locals arrived with their dogs.. The house cat... More

Best I've had so far. Panacotta with fruit/ lovely little fruit salad and soft melting chocolate cake to die for. Good value too. Planning on returning for a meal now.

My mum and I were looking for somewhere to eat after we'd been to the Picasso Museum so we popped in here where the service was excellent and our food arrived very quickly. We both chose the veggie lasagna with percorino and rocket.It was a really good lasagna and all the other dishes looked nice if a bit meaty for... More

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.
