Not a cozy place. Uncomfortable table arrangment. Really bad arrogant service, just because I don't speak French, had to ask the waiter 3 times for everything. He kept running away.

Have a dinner with my friend, little Christmas tasting! Being already before few times for early bird menu and business lunches. Excellent food, high quality of execution and great taste. Good wine list! Perfect place for romantic dinner or business lunch.

This is quite a tourist choice rather than local French but it was of a good standard and the service and ambiance is good. My partner's veal kidneys in mustard were excellent and my prune pudding was jolly. All in all we'd go back. I...More

We had an excellent time and thank god our waiter spoke English. Francis had a great sense of humor! We had chicken pot stew which was excellent! Real touch of Paris and off the beaten path. My physician from Juneau referred us to this place.

My boyfriend and I just landed in Paris on a Wednesday morning, rested a bit, went to the Jamiroquai concert and realized we hadn't really eaten since our arrival and were super hungry. It was 11PM and much to our surprise, there weren't many restaurants...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

I'd have to agree with Mary Lou. It's a beautiful place with lovely food so if your children are of an age to appreciate it then it should be fine. Not really ideal for Toddlers or young babies.

I would call and explain the situation. They speak English. We anticipated being later than we were, so we arrived 40 minutes before our reservation (after a show). We had to wait 5-10 minutes, and then they seated us... More
