Please let me begin by explaining that I am a pretty adventurous food lover who prizes spice above all things on planet earth but for some reason have never managed to quite get on board with Mexican cuisine despite trying very hard; including in Mexico with locals - although I do strongly suspect that that particular experience was aimed at...

Tacos were super tasty! Chips and salsa had a pickles and vinegar flavor that was actually amazing. My beer was from Brooklyn and it was good. The guys working the grill had old school rap playing on the speakers (Sugar Hill Gang + Grandmaster Flash). And I will say it again, the tacos were super tasty! The lamb taco was... More

From California, I've eaten Mexican food my whole life (the real stuff, not Taco Bell). We won't go back. 1. The chips and salsa were corn tortilla chips, squirted with a very watery sauce, topped with a generous dollop of crema and a load of homemade chopped pickles. Pickles. Really strange. 2. I asked the server if I could have... More

Being an American from Texas, I felt quite at home going to a speakeasy located behind a functioning taqueria. Unfortunately, I was still too full to try a taco. That place was certainly cramped but the drinks truly were quality. I love a good tequila or mezcal cocktail and I was not disappointed. Great for a quick hop in and... More

So after reading some reviews and also reading a article about where the locals go, we gave the place a shot. The taco restaurant in front is really really small and keeping with this theme so are the portions. For 13 Euros or about $16 you got a bowl of black bean soup , a piece of belly pork, some...

We took a "cocktails only" respite from Holiday shopping in this mysterious and utterly seductive watering hole which has lived up to its reputation. The grotto like ambiance, in the early evening hours, was irresistably inviting. We each ordered a different cocktail from their selection and our expectations were surpassed. Yes, the place was crowded but it was the human... More

13€ for one cocktail ... for me is too expensive.... yes , the local is nice, the ambient is suggestive, but the price of drinks are too high... I believe .

Another great example of the up-and-coming cocktail scene in Paris. They are a little behind (London, NYC, San Fran, Shanghai, etc) but they are coming on strong with the next level of excellent cocktail bars. Loved Candelaria!

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.
