After our mini trip to Versailles and back to downtown Paris, finding a good restaurant at midnight wasn’t exactly easy. Most places were overbooked, closed for holidays or filled with drunk people. But, we found our luck near the Cathedral Notre-Dame, at Au Pied de Cochon.
Open 24/7, this French restaurant runs at every hour. In that sense, it probably attracts a lot of lost wandering hungry tourists in the area.
Apparently, it started in 1947 and, since then, welcomed plenty of famous guests and celebrities like Joséphine Baker. The Belle Époque décor kept the lavish and elegant character of the old days.

The meal was an absolute delightful feast. My personal favorite is the delicate taste of the seabream. As for the service, I didn’t expect such warm servers (especially in Paris).
