My wife and I were hungry after having massages near the Place des Halles area. Found this place across from Joe Allen's American restaurant near the Etienne Marcel metro stop. Greeted by a nice guy who spoke great English named Guillome. We decided on French onion soup first. It came to the table barely warm and was salty and peppery.... More

Stopped in around 1:30 for lunch, several items including the daily special were already sold out. Staff were mostly nice but very busy, perhaps understaffed. The food was okay but nothing special. Saw a group of kids (18-ish), they all ordered burgers and fries which looked better than my risotto. Only one visit, so perhaps a second visit would be... More

Service is OK good to sit have a smoke and watch the world go be on a busy noisey corner. The food I have eaten here twice not sure why a second time must have short tern memory lost. Sorry but it's as bad a Paris can offer.

We had 2 of their salads for lunch. Good, fresh and large. Good value for the price. The drinks were a bit expensive, and the service was a bit hit and miss, even though we had an early lunch and they were not that busy.

We had lunch today whilst waiting to check in to our accommodation. Waited 40 mins for a beef tartare and a salad. Salad came without avocado for some strange reason when it was clearly stated on the menu. When they gave us some avocado it was mostly brown. If I had that at home I would throw it out. Apart...

Yes this café is cheap, but the food my friend and I had today was really mediocre. The table and menus were very sticky and the place gives a general air of not being too keen on cleanliness.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
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 just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
