Even though it is a touristy type place, the French Onion Soup was soooo good that it is worth every penny. The combination of broth, cheese, and bread were perfect in that none overwhelmed the other for taste. It was perfectly complementary. We also had...More

If you like pig foot, this is an authentic place to have. The place is nice, has great food, in the vicinity of Les Halles, you can start walking after a heavy dish. Families are welcome. Staff is friendly.

If you love your pork this is the place to go in Paris. Waiters are typical French and there are a lot of tourist but the food is great and so is the atmosphere

Service is outstanding and quality of good keeps being excellent. Whenever in Paris I make it a point to come to Au Pied de Cochon and I'm never disappointed. It's my favourite place

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

If you search for their name in Google they actually have an English menu that lists what they have to offer. Not much for vegetarians that I can see, unless they eat seafood?

The ovens at Au Pied de Cochon were fired up in 1946 and they have never been turned off since. Au Pied de Cochon is a Paris institution, very near the Centre Pompidou, on your way from shopping the first arrondissement to the sightseeing the Marais. It is decorated with a profusion of Art Nouveau stylistic touches, like mirrors, fantastic chandeliers, paintings of lovely ladies. There is also an enticing terrace, and, as it's open 24/7, you can come in anytime for a meal and to watch the world go by. Menu is French. Try starter of oysters of several types and sizes, house special main course of pig's trotter stuffed with duck liver and pudding of babas au rhum.
