  • I love this market! There are food from all countries (Greek, French, us, Moroccan, Italian, Japanese etc etc!). The atmosphere is very friendly, we can start with its shopping, or eating on the spot, or a drink. It's really a very cute place! I recommend!

  • We can find places to eat dishes from different sources, take a tea, a wine... We stopped to take a Moroccan tea and then had dinner at the apartment, a place to repeat and try other options.

  • It is the oldest market in Paris and there are a lot of small spaces, lots of small cafes and restaurants where they sell ethnic foods-Moroccan, Japanese, French, Italian, vegetarian ... The food is great.

  • 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.
  • The "must-see" place in Paris. You should check Chez Alain Miam Miam's burger: you will find a store with pretty big queue (there always is queue to him). The cook is very chatty and nice person who makes amazing burgers! Check out size of pancake and burger!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
