I love this restaurant as you can sit outside, alongside the Canal, and eat extremely good sea food and then after the meal you can stroll alongside The Canal, play boules, and generally enjoy oneself! The Staff can be a bit on the "short tempered" side but hey this is Paris and waiters and waitresses everywhere here are the same.... More

Little bit cramped but overall very nice restaurant accented on sea food dishes (bit strange for central Paris) with kind but non-English speaking staff. Both dishes and wines were splendid though. Close to Stalingrad metro station with nice view on Bassin de la Villette channel.

We gave 3/5 for this restaurant because of the extremely unpleasant woman who greeted us and then refused to help us. As guests of the hotel we expected better. We had arrived that day and were tired after a long day and did not want to search elsewhere. Once we got her out of the way and were finally seated,... More

Good food, good view of the canal and definitely a place to eat if you are in the area. You can then stroll around the canal and observe locals playing bocci or play a game yourselves.

the terrace of La Criee alongside the Canal Saint Martin, attached to the Holiday Inn is THE place to have lunch in the sun, next to the water. Food was excellent, wide variety of tastes on our plate Océane. But what made our day was the excellent and friendly service. The Gerant heard us speak another language and immediately addressed...

The one I tried was in Rue Nationale 20 but I could not find it here.. We ordered their famous Moules with fries and it was the best.. I've tasted same menu in other provinces of France but the one they serve in La Crièe is comparatively bigger and tastier but more pricey. I can say it's worth the price... More

Staying in La Villette

Neighbourhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
