First Review by MBermingham

Awesome atmosphere and delicious food - Edit

Found via Happy Cow after visiting Centre Pompidou. It was a great change after a rather tasteless lunch in one of v turistic restraurants close to Notre Dame. It was full of flavour and beautifully served. We ate a Buckwheat pancake and Aubergine suprise. Both splendid. Definately will go back

Holy crap this place is the complete vegan dining experience. We had 3 courses ending with a mind blowing creme brûlée! It seems to be very popular so make sure you make a reservation!

Pros: Date night worthy, Menu variety , Location

Cons: Expensive

First Night in Paris - Edit

After arriving in Paris earlier in the day; fortunate to have been able to get a reservation at La Poertager. The only available table at our time at 8:30pm was outside. From our selection of the variety platter of dips & bread. Our entrees did not disappoint. We both ordered the Cassoulet. Rich in flavors, creamy deliciousness.

Pros: Easy to find , Customer Service, Fast delivery of food

Cons: Took awhile for Oder to be taken. , Outside tables a little crammed.

We will definitely visit on our next trip to Paris!

Good experience - Edit

It‘s a classical small parisian restaurant, very busy on a Sunday night, so we were glad that we had made a reservation. The staff was friendly and the food was good but not excellent. If the dishes were more tastefull, the bread not so dry and the presentation of the dishes more loving I would give more stars!

Good French bistro - Edit

French bistro atmosphere and classic French bistro dishes remade as vegan - a great place to go for this. We had seaweed tartare (excellent and well-flavoured), seitan bourgignon (great idea but lacking in mushroom+wine flavour depth, and way too salty [this was blamed on the stock!]), and then apricot creme brulee (very nice, but a little heavy). So not perfect but a good three courses. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Delicious vegan french food - Edit

As I was in Paris, I wanted to try some veganized french dishes, and Le Potager du Marais hit the spot. The french onion soup was delicious (great vegan cheese), the seitan bourgignon was super tasty and the creme brulée was a bit on the dense side, but still delicious. Portions were definitely big! Worth the price in my opinion.

Magical - Edit

Potager du Marais is a lovely little restaurant. The people are so kind, and the food is just amazing. My favorite dish was the “boeuf” bourgignon.

Favorite restaurant in Paris - Edit

Worth the wait and the splurge, everything was absolutely delicious and unique. We tried the potato with pesto and olive tapenade, lasagna, and burger with smoked tofu. Very flavorful and filling food, I really need to figure out how they did that tofu so well! Our waiter was extremely friendly. We got lucky not having a reservation ahead of time (just had to come back about an hour later), but I would definitely make a reservation next time. Waiter said they accept either via phone or email.

Pros: flavorful food, menu has variety and unique items, friendly staff

Cons: small spot

A M A Z I N G ! - Edit

Really amazing, onion soup was excellent and place is cosy itself too!!!

Lasanje was OK, but for me too spinachy :D

Maybe the only thing is there is one quick waiter, but if there are so many clients same time, then can take some time. So be well prepared :D

Delicious traditional-style French food - Edit

This is a tiny restaurant located near Centre Pompidou. It is popular, so be sure to book in advance.
The staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu consists of traditional French dishes which have been veganized. We took the seitan bourgignon and the buckwheat crepes filled with leeks and mushrooms and both were delicious. The mushroom pate (starter) was also extremely tasty. The desserts looked fantastic but we were stuffed with our starter and main.
It's not cheap but the portions are large.

Pros: Centrally located, Friendly staff, Sizeable portions

Cons: The tables are very close to each other

great food - Edit

We booked to go here for dinner as we had heard it was busy and we were lucky we did. The place is nice and cosy. We were the first diners there for dinner but it was soon fully packed. The downside to that is service took a little longer than it should have. The food however was absolutely incredible (special shout-out to the French onion soup and it’s vegan cheesy goodness on top) and the waiter was very nice. Overall, delicious food but book ahead and be prepared for wait times.

Incredible! - Edit

This place is so cool! Loved my traditional French food cooked to perfection. My boyfriend (also newly vegan) is Parisian and he was really shocked at how good the dishes were. I also had a a cocktail of fresh vegetable juices and a glass of vegan red wine.

Super friendly staff and the restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and Ian dog friendly too for little dogs as the place is quite small.

Top tip is to book ahead as they are always busy! We were lucky to find a table without booking but normally this isn't the case.

The dishes were generous and really tasty and everything is also organic too!

This is now my favourite restaurant in Paris!

Pros: Traditional French food in gorgeous location, Wonderful service, Really tasty meals!

Cons: None! But reserve a table as it's that good!!!

expensive but tasty - Edit

I had a great dinner here back in April. My favourite thing was the french onion soup, the cheese and the bread were so well done. I also liked the seitan goulash in red wine or however it was called and the cakes were also very tasty. It is a small space though so you feel a bit cramped but I would go back again. It is fairly expensive though.

Pros: tasty

Food is great but...expect hostility - Edit

First off, let me begin by saying that the food here is amazing! However, one of the male servers actually yelled and got into the face one of a young lady at my table. There was a slight misunderstanding about the number of our party. When we politely tried to notify the waiter, in fluent French, he began to yell and cause at scene at the restaurant. It was horrible and beyond embarrassing for the entire table. I tried to come back again, eager to give the place another chance... Unfortunately, this did not go well either. My boyfriend and I were waiting in line to enter the restaurant when it opened. The same server was there. We patiently waited in line behind other guests. After the lady in front of us had been turned away for a table of 4, we asked if there was room for a table for 2. The server offered us a table and the lady who was just turned away began to make a scene and roll her eyes. The server again yelled at everyone to get in an orderly line and all became chaos. I’d give the food 5 stars, but my experience with the staff and other guests was beyond hostile.

nichts besonderes - Edit

Sehr klein und familiär, wir hatten vorab reserviert. Schneller Service allerdings war das Essen teilweise kalt oder verbrannt. Durch das Warmhalten in der Küche war alles sehr zerkocht.

Pros: rein vegan, netter schneller Service

Cons: verhältnismäßig teuer, Essen okay aber nichts beso
