  • A friend took us here for the Moroccan place in the back. This is an open air, try to find a table, eating on fold out chairs kinda place... and the food is fabulous. I had a lamb tangine and my wife had the chicken. Our friend had the couscous and sausage plate... all three were significantly above average.
  • This is a cute little market and worth a glance with lots of options for lunch... HOWEVER... I would absolutely recommend that you avoid the Lebanese restaurant!!! The guy behind the counter might actually be the grumpiest person in all of Paris (which is no mean feat). This place brings customer service to a new low ... they make being rude to and demeaning their customers an art form (for which they should receive a reward... as they do it very seemlessly). They must get some sort of sadistic high from watching as the smiling faces of their excited customers turn into a frown... ...just do yourself a favor and avoid this place... unless you enjoy people being rude to you!
  • Lively market with varied food offers. I had Japanese food, good relationship quality/price. Would visit again to try the other sandwiches/plats.
  • A popular place for travelers looking for some delicious food in a casual market setting. It is crowded during lunch though, so be prepared to wait.
  • Whole world on the plate. Wonderful atmosphere. Delicious food.
