We stayed for 2 nights just next door to Au Chien Qui Fume‎‎ and ate twice there. Friday night it was very buzzy (live music etc). We haven't booked but since we had a card from the hotel they have managed to sort us out with a table. Staff was very friendly. We got a complimentary drink. Food was delicious.... More

The food is good but not amazing. Lots of couples with young children. Expensive but not a good quality -price ratio.

The restaurant is decorated with a lot of smoking dogs, in different contexts. The menu proposed a broad choice of meat, fishes and a seafood (oysters and crustaceans).... More

I visited this place a couple of years ago and greatly enjoyed their stew of sucking pig. I returned hoping to repeat the experience only to find that the sucking pig was not available that day. No matter: I ordered the pot au feu made from calf's head instead and still had a most enjoyable dish. OK, some may blanch... More

This is a restaurant we have visited often over the years. The food and atmosphere are always good. OK - I love dogs, and I suppose to some the somewhat kitsch pictures and pottery dogs may be OTT - but I love them! Fish is especially good here. Even when it is really busy, you never feel rushed & are... More

Opened in 1740 Au Chien Qui Fume has become the temple of Parisian brasseries. An historic monument. Au Chien has just the thing & it follows it. First all servers are very professional. Second they propose a classic and casual cuisine. We took onion soup, crayfish ravioles, roasted rack of lamb, sea scallops in Noilly sauce and rhum baba. Tasteful.... More

Have known of this place years ago but did not visit until recently when we were in the Les Halle area and were looking for lunch. Had bulot, oysters, sucking pig stew and wine. Served by friendly and welcoming staff throughout. Try it out and you will be very pleased.

We hesitated before eating there as some reviews were not great. However, we were pleasantly surprised and had a delicious meal and had no problem with the service (which was good). I will not hesitate to return next time I am in Paris (the escagot casserole is wonderful).

Thank Nathalie B

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.
