I had a great meal here, I was travelling by myself and was made to feel very welcome and they helped me with the menu given my French was limited. The wine they recommended was spot on and not expensive, the food was beautiful!

A fantastic, small cosy restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere. The steak house delivered great juicy steak and wonderful wine. This is a must eat place in Paris.

We walked past this restaurant a couple of times whilst trying to find it & nearly went into one of the larger restaurants nearby. Thank goodness we didn't. A delightful little French restaurant perfect for lunch. Steak and frites delicious, as was the salad of the day. Wondering if a salad will be sufficient?, well don't. I was really quite... More

I cannot heap enough praise on this restaurant. From the amazing, consistently superb food, to the service and decor, it is one of my city favorites. Go for the meat. Its perfect. Be sure to book as it gets insanely packed. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Try to get a table downstairs... much nicer..

My French friend recommend this place and I cant be more thankful for that. Very cozy atmosphere with nice, helpful and very outgoing service and great food! In the restaurant there were only French people but the stuff spoke good English. All of us have ordered snails, steaks with friends and lime tart. And I can frankly say the steak... More

L'Aller Retour is everything I was hoping to find in a Paris restaurant; cozy, great food, great wine, and filled with locals. We showed up without reservations, but were able to snag a two top by the window. Over the next 3.5 hours we dined on foie gras, perfectly cooked boeuf, frites, fondant, and enjoyed two delicious bottles of Burgundy,... More

L'Aller Retour is a wonderful, cozy restaurant that truly understands French cuisine and excellent service. My husband and I did not have reservations for tonight, so we gave L'Aller a shot. Upon walking in, the maitre de told us he had a cancellation for the evening and we could have a table. We we were promptly seated and introduced to... More

Book ahead because this restaurant fills up quickly. We arrived early on Friday night so got a spot on a table that was booked later. Service was a bit slow throughout the evening, but later when the restaurant was full at least it made sense. The menu is relatively brief, containing primarily beef in different cuts. While the entrees looked... More

We had an excellent evening at L'Aller Retour near Place de la République in Paris. You have to enjoy beef to enjoy this restaurant but if this is the case you will not be disappointed. Service was attentive and friendly. Detailed information was provided on the menu items as well as the evening specials. We enjoyed steaks cooked to perfection... More

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.
