We very much enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. We sat outside and it was very pleasant on a warm evening. The food was good and the waiters were very friendly and courteous. It was a nice experience and we will go back.

This is one of those small, pleasant Parisian restaurants that line many of the streets of the Marais district--with a European menu, nice wine selection and terrific local atmosphere. We stopped in for an early evening meal at an outside table--great for relaxing and people...More

the snails were good, but not a lot of butter which I think is the best part. The raw beef was good. But I think there are better

Such a dammage that you didn't ask for more butter sauce! We are very careful with the quantity of fat on our fresh products. Welcome back again and thankyou.

Went with my mum for lunch. Just one course, special of the day, Thai beef salad. Fill you up really well, plenty of beef. The wine was really nice. Good service. The menu has plenty of french dishes as well which look good too. Recommended

We discover this restaurant fortuitously and we were not deceived. The tenant was really nice and friendly and the food delicious! The lemon dessert is a must! The prices are quite high but they match with the quality.

Every tourist is welcome to Petit Marcel to have a local meal as we are situated in a touristique area! We are sorry but under 20 euros we can't accept cards. Paying in a restaurant for what you asked is correct!

Everything was at least fair nothing fantastic. Pleasant service, helpful. Skirt steak was served rare though medium requested and too chewy but ribeye was succulent. Roasted chicken was tender juicy and spiced appropriately. House Bordeaux and Chablis were good value.

Thankyou very much for your opinion. We are sorry for the skirt steak but usually the "bavette" is stringy, perhaps, but nevertheless delicious very popular with French clients and always served rare. We hope to welcome you back again.

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
