We were recommended this brilliant local bistro by a random couple who saw our disappointment at a very bland touristy cheese platter elsewhere. A quick Franglais discussion and some scribbled notes on a napkin led us here to meet Cyrille (waiter) and Vincent (owner). We...More

Relaxing bistro with very good basic food, nice libations & very nice staff. Relaxing, neighborhood. Excellent Salade Nicoise; very good Croque Monsieur! A must.

Our tired group of 7, after a long flight, was really hungry... and needed to find anything to eat on our first night in Paris. Could have been a recipe for disaster. Fortunately, we happened upon this out of the way corner restaurant. The menu...More

Wet night just looking for somewhere nearby to eat, came across this place and ordered the classic steak, fries and salad - what a tasty surprise this meal turned out to be. The creme brûlée was damn fine too. Highly recommended!

This place is down to earth, noisy and very Parisian. It is in the heart of the city, and lots of fun. The food is fresh and tasty and the service is professional. Thumbs up.

Stopped for quick lunch as walking past. Looked nice, menu in French but ordered one of their planches as recommended by the waiter, great mix of meats, pates and terrines with bread. Really tasty and more than enough for 2 for lunch. Great little spot.

A traditional little french restaurant, of course very busy during lunchtime. The menu is written on a blackboard, in french only of course. The food is really excellent, traditional french cuisine.

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
