There were 3 in our party and we each ordered something different. Each of us agreed our food was delicious and that Jo, our waiter, was so friendly and helpful to us “tourists” with menu choices.

Had a really good meal here. I had a delicious (and huge!) lamb shank with lovely mashed potato followed by the cafe gourmand, which I thoroughly recommend. Staff were great too!

Small and tight - like so many French bistros. Great atmosphere and very efficient staff. Food was of high quality and reasonably priced. Maria’s is an area away from the rip off parts of the city and worth staying here - this place is typical...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
