Why bother making a reservation if they will take people in their order of arrival regardless of whether there is a reservation or not? Also, if the waiter doesn't speak French (should have tested his English) it's likely I will not get my order right...More

This was my fourth or fifth visit over the course of at least twenty years. This is a restaurant I've always enjoyed and will continue to patronize. I like the energy of this old style brasserie and I especially appreciate the attentiveness of the servers....More

Good geography, nice interior, polite waiters. Food is just good, for example, fish was really nice even with bacon (little bit strange but nice).

Great meal here with a friend when we were passing through Paris. Our waiter, Dario, was personable, knowledgeable and attentive. Would recommend.

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

If you search for their name in Google they actually have an English menu that lists what they have to offer. Not much for vegetarians that I can see, unless they eat seafood?

The ovens at Au Pied de Cochon were fired up in 1946 and they have never been turned off since. Au Pied de Cochon is a Paris institution, very near the Centre Pompidou, on your way from shopping the first arrondissement to the sightseeing the Marais. It is decorated with a profusion of Art Nouveau stylistic touches, like mirrors, fantastic chandeliers, paintings of lovely ladies. There is also an enticing terrace, and, as it's open 24/7, you can come in anytime for a meal and to watch the world go by. Menu is French. Try starter of oysters of several types and sizes, house special main course of pig's trotter stuffed with duck liver and pudding of babas au rhum.
