We went for dinner - the menu was bit fusiony (which always makes me raise an eyebrow slightly) but the food was actually great. We were a party of 4 and all chose different dishes, all of which were good (lamb chop, duck confit with paysanne potatoes, steak with parsnip chips and I had veal kidneys with honey spiced turnips)...

I was lucky enough to enjoy canard du confit when in Paris at the end of my trip. It was the best I'd had during my time in France. A fantastic way to end my trip!

I ordered a la carte for lunch instead of set menu - Fricassée de lapin mijoté aux oignons et raisins blondes, purée de pommes de terre and it was right choice. The dessert (Mousse au chocolat noir et citron vert, flocons de chocolat blanc) was also nice. Within 5 minutes from bastille or St-Paul. And of course, excellent warm service!... More

Find this place, and enjoy! We shared a bowl of the velvety soup of green lentils and duck breast. Main courses of haddock and chicken were delicious! The recommended wines were perfect compliment. The flan type desert of baked apple and calvados was amazing. Great Service and ambiance to match.

My partner and I have had dinner here on each of two recent visits to Paris - in December and a few days ago. It's a mixture of locals and tourists - it's in the Marais/Place des Vosges area so pretty touristy but also a residential area of central Paris. Pleasant space - tables are quite close but we've been... More

This place is in the heart of the Marais, but not touristic. Mostly full of regulars, enjoying a proper French business lunch. Food is from the SW - boudin noire, that kind of thing. Allegedly a haunt of Maigret, one could imagine that the great detective would have mingled here with his old friends. Service was a bit slack, but... More

This was our last dinner in Paris, and it didn't disappoint. After searching for a good restaurant to go to that would sum up our trip we decided to come here. We sat outside drinking our wine and watched the sunset from a quite ally way/ street that reminded us why Paris is the City of Romance. We started off... More

I found this place just by looking up French restaurants within walking distance of my hotel and it wasn't even the first one I went to check out, but it was the first one that was open when I arrived with my friends. I'm a big fan of French food as I used to live in France when I was... More

We wanted a typical French bistro and this was recommended by hotel. Fabulous food, all authentic french and delicious. Was actually full of a lot of US students but maybe because of the area it was in? Wine ( obviously all french) was delicious and the service was very friendly and efficient.

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.
