Fun place to eat inside the market, not exactly sure what they do in very cold rainy days. Food is simply delicious, love the idea of sitting and eating inside a food market. Seafood as fresh as it gets and service is friendly.

I’ve put this as average taking into account the experience ad a whole. The food is quite good, and so it should be for 30€ tapas plates in an undercover market. The service is not really great, wines are marked up 5 x 10 x...their actual price (there is no pricing guide anywhere for wine! So surprise!) leading to a hefty bill at the back end. Which is fine if you know what your getting, but to make it worse it’s the second time I’ve been there and we have been overcharged for wines and coffees that we didn’t even have (at 10-15€ the glass of wine, it makes a difference). =36€ overcharged on the last visit. Maybe it’s an honest mistake and a function of the problem with service, but twice bitten, three times shy. Feel like there are better places to spend your hard earned money in Paris with restaurants that are better value and won’t try to rip you off.More

An excellent informal French culinary expérience. Located in the oldest, still functioning food market in Paris. Traditional dishes with sometimes a slight twist to them.

Hard to find with our limited French but what a joy to finally sit down at a table. We had starters that were all great, but we had two main dishes that blew us away. The first was a spider crab that the meat removed...and returned to the shell with a wonderful sauce that was beyond great. Then came the dish that may be one of the best plates ever served to me. Sweetbreads sitting on caramelized eggplant over a delicious purée and topped with eel. Literally one of the great dining experiences of my life.More

We were attracted by the food on the plates walking by. You sit at the bar within the food court of the market. I had Ceviche, which was excellent. They also serve beef and port and seafood ... if you are not French, be aware...that the beef does not come well done😉, rather the French way! It’s not cheap ... we paid €70 for 1 dish and 1 glass of wine each. We liked the food and the market atmosphere ... will come back!More

Seriously one of the best meals I’ve ever had! We often rate our food experiences based on not only the food but the atmosphere and staff, we’ll this place had it all and then some. We (my wife, 10 and 8 yr olds) had the...snails, mussels and octopus with a beautifully selected Grenache wine by the staff. The whole market is incredible and we would have loved to eat everywhere and will do when we go back again, which will be as soon as possible.More

I was excited to visit Les enfants du marche but ended up with such a terrible experience. I checked their website which indicated that they open from 9am. I arrived at 10am but was turned down. I politely inquired them the opening time but the...Japanese owner was quite rude. This is the only encounter with a Japanese chef that was horrible. All Japanese chefs I met are polite, as most Japanese people are. If the restaurant opens at 12pm, just put the correct info on the website. If one opens later on that particular day, just let the clients know the opening hour. Sometimes, in some cases of certain restaurants which are exteremely busy, they offer great food. So I thought I would put up with the rude owner and gave it a try, the food might be good as raved by some food writers. Sadly, the mussels dish is as bad as the owner. While the raw material wasn’t bad but the taste and the preparation was poor. As u can see from the real pic, there was still lots of byssus thread / mussels beard. Any respectable restaurants would remove byssus thread before serving customers. This restaurant’s price point is high. So I don’t recommend anyone who look for good experience.More

This restaurant is located inside the market. The market itself is not impressive. We had a great experience at this restaurant. We got there 30mins before they opened and they still served us. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and efficient.
