Food is good. But Not good enough service. Waitress was so unkind. I am not Chinese but they much ignore Chinese people.

I liked the snails there but it's overpriced and I don't think I got the best value out of it. Service was good indeed but since I'm a foodie, I wouldn't go back again.

On our trip, we made it a point to get escargot at every restaurant we went to. We were hesitate about trying this restaurant but it exceeded all of our expectations. We got the 36 escargot platter for $80 euros for 4 people and it...More

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
