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

Cons: small space, expensive

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

Not impressive, overpriced - Edit

The general idea of the restaurant is to serve French traditional cuisine revisited in a vegan fashion: it is sadly mostly revisited in a tasteless style. And the prices and two high for the quality of the food. There are many better options in Paris!

Pros: Location, Friendly staff

Cons: Tasteless, Overpriced

So French - Edit

If you want to try typically French food, this is the place for you. For my main dish I had a mock beef, which was good but the absolute star of the meal was the French onion soup. Worth going for that alone!

Pros: Delicious and French!

Wonderful! - Edit

This was my second vist and it was just as good as the first. The staff are so nice and helpful. They speak English so well. The food was really great, real French style cuisine and don't forget dessert! I had a cereal coffee (which is great as I couldn't have caffine) with dessert (chocolate mousse, of course!) and it really hit the spot. Loved it! Great place!

Pros: totally vegan and some g/f options

Nice and cosy - Edit

I got the crispy quinoa burger with grilled vegetables and tofu, however, there was no tofu.
It was still really good.
The mushroom sauce was to die for!
My mom got the spinach-walnut lasagna which tasted a bit too much like spinach.
The cheese on it was amazing, though.

The restaurant was quite small, so I would recommend making a reservation before going there.
We barely managed to get a table when we came at 7 p.m.
I really liked the cosy vibe it had.

One thing that wasn't good was the apple tart.
My mom and I didn't like it, it wasn't anything special.
We would come back, but not for that dessert.

Pros: Small place, got the food quickly

Cons: Bad apple tart

one of the best places in Paris! - Edit

Not only did we enjoy a full meal with great dishes, and a very friendly service, I can positively say that any other dish would be fantastic as well.
Our favourites we're the onion soup, seitan borginion, and apple tart.

Lovely lunch! - Edit

More traditional options on menu, with vegan versions of Europeand dishes (like seitan stew, salad with vegan cheese). Loved the food, although would have like some more cheeze in the salad for example, of some more spicing.

Very friendly. Cosy little place. But a bit crowded.
Small terrace in front.

great food! - Edit

We had a great dinner there, the food was amazing and the staff was very nice. We had the vegan versions of two french classics, the onion soup and the seitan bourguignon, and also a carrot soup and a (lupin) roll, and everything was great. A bit pricey but worth it. Its very recommended to make a reservation beforehand.

Pros: fully vegan, versions of french classics

OMG - Edit

I had really high expectations for this place, which usually ends with me at least a bit disappointed (I don't know why I do this to music). But not this time. I was expecting great food and I got blew-me-out-of-my-shoes food. It was so delicious, it tasted so fresh!
My husband is usually fussy about vegan food (just for the sake of being so) absolutely loveled the food (and the dessert, and the drinks).
The place was jammed on a Thursday night, so I was really happy we booked our place (I think that's a safest option). The staff was really busy, but really nice.
It's expensive food, but it's very special food and a great experience!

Pros: Delicious food, Full vegan menu, Organic ingredients

Cons: Expensive , Portions are small

Simply Amazing - Edit

Been there with my girlfriend yesterday and it was astonishing! Never had such a good meal in years. The interieur of the restaurant is romantic, 'classically french' and fitted perfectly. We had a 3-course-menu which was tasty beyond our expectations, although it was quite pricy (which was expectable). We highly recommend the onion soup and the spinach-lasagne. We would come back to Paris just to eat there again. :)

Délicieux! - Edit

Nous avons mangé un tartare d'algues, une pomme de terre au pistou et tapenade, des lasagnes aux épinards, un bourguignon de seitan et un carrot cakes
Tout était parfait!
