Au Pied de Cochon Restaurant in Paris

Au Pied de Cochon is a very traditional type of restaurant that first opened its doors back in 1947 and since then has never been closed.  Yes, you read correctly, this venue is open 24 hours a day, every day!

Subtly combining the old traditions with the modern, for many years Au Pied de Cochon has been a tradition to many Parisians as the stop off point after a late night out to have their famous onion soup prior to going home.

Au Pied de Cochon Restaurant in Paris

Yet this legendary establishment provides some fantastic seafood dishes like different varieties of oysters that you can wash down with some champagne at the bar, but it also remains true to its name with numerous different pork dishes from grilled pig's feet with béarnaise sauce, knuckle of pork, stuffed pig's trotter, pork chops and much, much more.

Situated in the 1st Arrondissement in the Chatelet district of Paris near to The Louvre, The Pompidou Centre and Les Halles, you are also able to purchase some of the freshest oysters outside this restaurant in Paris.

Some of the other dishes served are a little less unusual and would be more suitable, especially for the not so adventurous tourist, such as a shin of pork caramelised in honey and served on a bed of sauerkraut, or grilled pork ribs with sage sauce and chips.

The dining room, with its white tablecloths and pig details dotted all over, make the place feel cheerful with good humour and the terrace that extends into an open-plan kitchen in the picturesque pedestrian walkway is an inviting temptation to try the traditional French cuisine on offer.

Restaurant Guide Key Points

It is open 24 hours a day seven day a week.

Suitable for the whole family, although late nights and early hours of the morning are more suited to the person who has been out partying. 

There is no particular dress code and the approximate cost for a meal is anything upwards of about 25€, but bear in mind that reservations are recommended for typical Parisian lunch and dinner hours.

The closest Metro stations are Les Halles or The Louvre.
