A cosy yet simple place with beautiful big windows which give you a access to one of the busiest streets around the area of Etienne Marcel.

Mon vieil ami
One of the best restaurants in the heart of Saint -Louis island in the 4th district of Paris, called the Marais, known as a hidden secret for those who are looking for an intimate ambiance in which they can spend a special moment with their beloved us. The food is delicious, including the fish dishes suggested by Antoine Westermann , the self taught chef with three Micheling stars under his belt who would rather bring out emotion most thn anything else in his cuisine.
