The manager said don't worry about your order and brought us the most amazing selection of tapas prepared with the most fresh ingredients imaginable. Razor clams were so good we ordered more and the mash potatoes and cheese were also amazing. We ordered 3 of...More

I took my two granddaughters, age 11 1/2 and 7 1/2 this evening. We loved it! They have fairly sophisticated palates for their age so they ordered the canard. I had the boeuf bourguignon. My little one gave it a 5 star rating. The service...More

Everything about this restaurant is enjoyable. It's in a handy location, just off the Rue de Rivoli, it serves excellent food (mainly bistrot classic dishes very professionally done, with some brilliant desserts), it's busy and lively without being raucous, it offers an extraordinary choice of...More

It is famed for meat, but the foie gras is truly outstanding. It is a busy, packed place, still service is efficient.

I've eaten dinner here numerous times over the years, and this last meal was as good as its ever been. It's a very busy place, you must have a reservation to get a table, even though it looks casual. They have an awesome wine list,...More

Very very good food. Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and it was a great choice. Friendly and welcoming. Bread was fresh. We started with rabbit rillett Paris Brest style and the pate en croute. Very flavoursome and tasty. I must admit that homemade organic white...More

I took several work mates here. The tables are all close together and the intimate atmosphere gives a buzzy feel. The food is really good. Order the boeuf Bourgignon and be prepared to waddle home. Definitely don't order a starter. It's a very big portion...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
