This was our first jet lagged stop once we landed in Paris. Fantastic lunch - helpful staff, delicious food. Would certainly return - hopefully soon!

We were looking for a local bistro to have a proper meal, and we spotted some great reviews for Le Petit Marche, so we decided to give it a try. It was a great decision, and definitely the most delicious dinner we had in Paris....Le Petit Marche is a french bistro in the heart of Marais, very close to place des Vosges. We came without reservation very late in the evening, and we were lucky enough to be seated in the terrace, which was great, since the weather was very mild. It serves french cuisine with an asian twist, which we absolutely adore. The tables are very small and cramped (something which is so typical parisian!) but that is the only negative of the place. The menu was simply amazing and everything we tried was very delicious. We had the salmon tartar with avocado and mango (at 13 euros), which was very delicious, and the thon cru with sesame (at 12 euros), which you will love if you are into sushi! For main dishes, we had the steak entrecote (at 25 euros), served medium rare (as asked), which was quite tasty (not the best I had, but still very nice) and the highlight of the restaurant, the magret de canard (duck caramelised with bananas, at 23 Euros). Especially this dish was absolutely incredible, and I totally recommend it to anyone visiting. We ended our dinner with a dessert, and we had the kadeyif (with pistaccio creme and praline, at 9 euros). Although I normally don't like desserts or sweet taste, this flavour was out of this world! We also had a bottle of red wine. For all the above, we paid (a couple) 102 euros, which was quite fair and definitely worth the money. The service was very attentive, in fact they served us some melon liquor at the end of our meal. It was so tasty, that we visited it the next day, too, as we wanted to try the other dishes of the menu. So, the next day we ordered a starter of the day and the croustillant gambas (prawns), which were both very good. For starter, we had the millefeuille de thon a la japonaise (at 21 euros), which was very good and well presented, although it had a similar taste with the starter of thon cru that we had ordered the previous day (so, I would suggest not to combine them in the same meal). We also ordered the tartare poele (t 18 euros), and for a dessert we ordered the creme brulee, which was mouthwatering, definitely a dish worth trying! The vibe of the restaurant is cosy but classic, and it all adds up to a perfect parisian experience. It is not on the cheap side (almost nothing is in Paris), but it is affordable (35-50 euros per person, depending on the wine), the food is high quality and you will definitely enjoy the visit!More

A group of us enjoyed a really well-paced and beautifully cooked Sunday lunch at le Petit Marché. We appreciated the ambience of the restaurant which was buzzing with locals. Service was friendly, the food and wine were good value and we will definitely be returning!

Came here for the good reviews, I found this place to be overpriced, and the service was really quite bad - maybe because we were not French, not sure, but they were very unattentive and the food was so mediocre and overpriced. Also, VERY cramped...tables.More

You MUST dine here for lunch and dinner if you are fortunate enough. 2 sets of friends recommended this place to us and it did not disappoint. The lamb was amazing and off the bone and rolled with some amazing herbs and on top of...even creamier sauce. Came with some of the most tasty whipped potatoes and fresh green beans. The duck was a whole other experience. Given you can get duck anywhere, this is a must because the flavors are reminiscent of asian duck I've had. Not strong...perfect. comes with grilled plantains. The molten lava cake and creme brulee with cinnamon and vanilla beans topped it off. Close enough to louvre to end a perfect day there. Friendly staff. FYI...very small and you will probably be seated where you cant get out until you're done. So with it!!!More

Weekend in Paris with my family, we went to this restaurant on saturday nigth because it had a lot of good reviews on TripAdvisor. All confirmed! Sublime dishes, yoy have to try absolutely millefeuille of tuna (Millefeuille de thon) and duck (Magret de canard). Excellent...service, we were with a stroller with a baby of year old and the staff made sure to find a place reserved for the girl. Highly recommended !!!More

Nice local hole-in-the-wall French restaurant. We came here on a Wednesday night and it was packed. We got lucky as there was a table for two, waiting for us. Most of the patrons were local. Their food was fantastic, good wine selections, and their dessert...was fantastic. Service was excellent and glad I spoke a little French which helps ordering. We'd come back here again. Cheers!More

Although we went on a Sunday evening we booked a table. Good job we did. It filled up quickly. The restaurant offered a limited but excellent choice of French food. I had a froi gras starter followed by magret de canard. Perfect. Will certainly go...again. Located very close to the beautiful Place de la Vosges. Tables tightly packed together. . . Cosy but nice.More

This is a wonderful little restaurant with friendly staff. The cuisine is French with an Asian twist. I had the crunchy prawn Gambas croustillant and my husband the salmon tartare for starters, followed by the caramelised duck breast and the grilled banana and fig. We...shared the gratin de mangoes for dessert. The food was fabulous and there were several for accompanying wines. Overall we really enjoyed eating here although it was rather cramped for space.More

What a fantastic little bistro! The restaurant was recommended by our Hotel - Hotel Original in Bastille. They squeezed us in very last minute much to our delight. Service excellent and very friendly. Place is not big. Atmosphere was lovely and very welcoming. They gave...us dips and crudités with our drinks. We had Prawns and Garlic mushrooms as starters and then white fish and the house speciality duck. Both Served with smashed potatoes and french beans to share. Everything was delicious with a French/ Asian twist. Location is very quiet in a little back street. Would definitely recommend to book.More

Our reservation was made on the mobile. The restaurant is interesting but frenetic when we were there. We would not wholeheartedly recommend.

Not specifically, you don't have to eat the bread basket, and there are plenty of options without flour. They do a great job with vegetables.
