I stopped here randomly just bc I was hungry. I ordered from today's specials list: turnip soup, cod and vegetables. Everything was very tasty, fresh and served fast. Place was very busy with locals. The waiters were friendly and all spoke English. The tables were small and cramped close, otherwise no problems.

We found this place while hunting for a patio eating experience after shopping in the Marais. It was a Friday night the first time (we went twice) so quite busy. Charles who greeted us said they were full, when we offered to wait he was very accommodating and served us bottle of wine while we waited on a bench in... More

Very good food, attentive servers, with a lovely terrace, Au Bistrot de la Place is just a block North of the rue de Rivoli. It faces a square on which 4 or 5 other bistros also seek diners and offer similar fare. My dinner was tasty, and then some. Prices are reasonable, and similar to other eateries in the Marais.

This was the second restaurant we tried on Place Ste-Catherine. I do love this little square. We had the carte du jour which included a squash soup to start. It was good though a little watery. For our mains we split a lasagna and beef brochettes with frites. Neither were mind blowing but they did the job and after eating... More

The place looks lovely, but it doesn't take many seconds to discover that this is a place made for tourists. The staff is nice, but the food is not interesting.

The restaurant is on a lovely little square. The food is tasty and nicely presented. Pates were good, as was the duck, and the mash was gorgeous.

The menu was 18.9 Eur each but the quality was just great, we had onion's soup, oeuf de poule (and foiegras and mushrooms) and as main porc with a tasty... More

Quaint French restaurant a few blocks from the St. Paul subway stop. Food was outstanding. Staff very friendly. They helped us to get past the language barrier.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
