    They have the best confit de canard of anywhere else that I've tried. Their lamb chops and salmon are awesome as well. Great service and reasonable prices. Ate there the past 3 nights. Fun location.

    The best restaurant I've been to in Paris! Wonderful filet mignon with béarnaise sauce. It was simply delicious. The service was amazing as well, the waiter was super helpful. Divine creme brûlée too

    Nice little place to finish the day. The waiter was very helpful in choosing a dish (spoke English but let me try some French). Onion soup was great on a cool evening.

    Very cute French bistro, right in the middle of super touristy Marais. Staff is amazing, very friendly and English speaking. Menus are fixed and well priced. Had an onion soup and an assiette

    French onion soup is THE thing here! I also recommend a glass of champagne to address. You'll be well served if you try to speak some french as I did, just don't be a weird american.
    A cafe and a restaurant where the locals as well as the tourists go for lunch & dinner. Typical french cuisine. Average prices compared to the similars. Nice deco & ambiance

    one of those restaurants that you can easily make "ma cantine" which defines the places you go all the time, surely have some favorites in the menu and feel quite comfortable in the warm atmosphere

    This place is perfect for people watching, one of the nicest terraces in Le Marais. BUT just have some wine and maybe an appetiser, and eat some place else! Food is not good and overpriced.
  • Avradeep C.
    Great little French bistro with a variety of meal options. The 35€ per head meal was v good. Staff were v friendly & one was quite funny too, with us English.

    My favorite cafe. Don't expect to speak English here. Do expect to have a great plate of food. Sit on the corner for people watching. Especially on Sundays.

    Tarta Tartin! The BEST! But arrive early (before 6pm) to be sure they have it, or there might be te risk you miss it! You don't want to regret it.

    food is really great (tarte tartin au tomate is terrific, as also the steak tartar), but the wine of the house ("vin du mois") actually sucks :/

    Very nice place to have a quick lunch. Don't expect the staff to be looking into your eyes when helping you, they have all these 4squarers waiting for their french food.

    Kind of my fav area in paris, and simply liked this spot, from many others (also nice) around.

    This is no pussyfooting steak tartare. I was a bit overwhelmed by the rawness, but it seemed very authentic.

    Get the salade des philosophes, topped with avocado, jamón ibérico de bellota, and goat cheese on toast. Does it get any better?

    Very nice restaurant in Marais. Try "de soupe gratinée a l'oignon + de canard maigre confite".

    Quite a busy place, but with friendly staff and good meals. Later in the evening the choice of desserts is rather limited.

    Okay, don't order that sausage filled with guts unless you've tried it before and known what it is. I didn't.

    It's a good spot for people watching in Marais. Get yourself a glass of wine and grab a seat facing the street.
