ThIs place is an institution - fast and furious, efficient, great people-watching, tables rammed together. great food but not fine dining. Go for the gilt and mirrors.

I was passing by en route to another recommended restaurant but thought I would throw caution to the wind and give this place a go as it looked well appointed. A herring and potato starter and the prawn on a bed of potato/chorizo. Both were very good and a pretty girl was in attendance. Tres bon

This highly recommended brassiere in the heart of Paris was a total disappointment. Service was so bad, it was very clear that this is a factory more than a restaurant. The waiters was stressed and not service minded what so ever. The food is ok but not more. The place it self is a super nice place with original furniture... More

Exquisite Fruits des Mer - perfect Fillet Steak with genuine sauce Bernaise - excellent deserts - professional and attentive service - I suspect none of this was cheap (I was a guest) but perfection doesn’t ever come cheap

We wandered into Bofinger because it appeared to be serving food early. We were tired an had not gotten used to the hours. They accommodated us by sitting us near the bar. They were nice and explained that they were not ready to serve a full menu at that time since the kitchen was not prepared. They did offer us... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
