The menu is not extensive, so on my two visits I tried almost everything and all the dishes were outstanding. We ate at the bar downstairs and it was buzzy with mostly French guests. Wine by the glass are interesting and reasonable. The wine list...More

My husband and I had a decadent lunch here last weekend. Fabulous food! We sat at the bar which I am glad we did as the room upstairs didn't have the same cozy feel. We shared a few too many things: duck terrine, lentils, asparagus...More

This is a small historic restaurant which has been given a new life by an American chef in Paris. The food is unabashedly traditional French. Limited choice of entrees, mains and deserts all well delivered. Everyone at the table appreciated all their dishes. You go...More

The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The waitstaff was incredibly personable, knowledgeable and professional - all three tonight. The food was horrible! The boullion soup was all broth and the "poached" egg was closer too hard boiled - more broth than in any pictures we...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
