Chicken for burger and salad OK-ish. Lettuce was dirty in the salad. T-bone 400gr was a disgrace for people who know how about good meet. Overall, too expensive for the quality it is offering.

Been there after visiting "Les Halles". The food is good but a bit pricy and the service is not the fastest one! Overall just an "OK" rating.

Service was bad as waitresses were not welcoming and rude. Despite several attempts to thank them with a smile everytime they serve us, there was neither a smile nor any response from them. It made it sound like our visit was a hassle to them!...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
