    Stopped in on a Sunday for lunch ... After several laps to decide where to stop and eat we opt for Moroccan cuisine. wide variety of couscous and other dishes. what food!!! All good! To finish and to warm us up a good tea. If you are in the area you should not let it get away!

    Maybe we went on the wrong day (so we went a 2nd day). 3 restaurant/cafe, 2 veg/fruit vendors, half the place was empty. Lucky for us there was a very neat playground near by. I am not sure how this i...  more »

    In the hands of a native. Put fruits and foods of the world. Lebanese food, burgers, sandwiches of the ciborium (here tail, but to do it), vegetarian... and that we, the Moroccan ate. Tajin, pastiche and cous cous. Very good and good treatment. The market is cumbersome but authentic. Would you again? For the sandwiches, I tell you

    In America we may think of a Market as a place to buy durable goods. This market though is a place to buy food. Crepes, Hamburgers (all the rage in Paris) Asian delicious, or your traditional bread, cheese and meat. All this and more from local, artisanal chefs. Do not miss a visit here but make sure you come hungry!!

    I really liked this place! You can find different kinds of food and good service, it's usually full (in my experience) but you can always find a place to sit, and it's not expensive.

    This isn't anywhere near as big as I was expecting nor as historic or pretty. There's perhaps 8-12 eateries including a few normal restaurants and even though we went on Saturday morning half of the stalls were closed. The restaurants and food stalls that are there look great, we ate at the Italian at the back and the food was lovely 4 stars but he actual market itself was a bit disappointing.

    Lots of great food choices, but watch for the cost if you are not sure of the language. A simple bread substitution can increase the price of a falafel by 40%

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.
