Some old bistros have the setting, others get the food. This little piggy (cochon) does a good job with both: the antique public telephone, the imposing zinc counter and the cosy wooden booths are charming reminders of Les Halles' heyday as the city's celebrated food market - note the tiles that depict scenes of the market in all its chaotic splendour. Food-wise, expect hearty, meaty dishes like stuffed pork on a bed of lentils and confit de canard, best accompanied by one of the 50 wines on the list. Enjoyed your meal? Write about it in the notebooks tucked away in little nooks.
