When in Paris, over the years I patronized this restaurant regularly, if not often, first in their 7th arrondissement location and then at the present one. Cheap for lunch, more expensive at night but always friendly and very good. It had been a while. The...More

Small place but special and good food. They change the menu daily depending they find in the mercado. Very fresh food. The only cons but no important is the selection of wine no extensive. Special dessert cream of pistachio excellent.

I like the place and I enjoyed the cousine, but unfortunately I haven't felt very welcome. I mean, there wasn't nothing to complain about the service but I missed that little "extra" to feel at home. When you travel solo, it's very appreciated.

I was lucky enough to enjoy canard du confit when in Paris at the end of my trip. It was the best I'd had during my time in France. A fantastic way to end my trip!

I ordered a la carte for lunch instead of set menu - Fricassée de lapin mijoté aux oignons et raisins blondes, purée de pommes de terre and it was right choice. The dessert (Mousse au chocolat noir et citron vert, flocons de chocolat blanc) was...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets

boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional

spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
