Well another buttery tender experience with Escargot. But our dinner of steak and lamb chops were divine.....my crepe Suzette dessert was great too. Don’t miss this one if you can get in.

I cannot review the food because I left the restaurant before order. The restaurant was empty and the waiter wanted to force us to stay in a small and uncomfortable table. I tried to ask gently if we could change the table taking into account...More

Situated near Etienne-Marcel metro station it is easily found. The building is lovely and old and looks unchanged so has a good atmosphere. Do book because it is very busy. The snails for starters are actually quite nice but there are lots of other starters...More

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

I would say it's not kid friendly. It's very cramped and dimly lit, it has an intimate atmosphere.

Not sure if you will need a reservation or not. We went for dinner around 7:30 PM on a summer night and just walked right in.
