Inviting, old France brasserie atmosphere with great food. Everything we had was good, but don't miss avocado and blue cheese gratinée. Incredible!!! Lyonnaise sausage and grilled fish also delicious. Cassoulet was good, journeyman quality, not outstanding, but welcome on a cold wet evening. Very friendly...More

Le Chansonnier seems frozen in time in a neighborhood with a young, hip vibe and new, interesting, exciting restaurants. I'm sure it was the state of the art in its day, but it's a shopworn and depressing remnant of its glory.More

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
