Former Au Passage bartender Löic Martin opened his eponymous bar-restaurant in late 2014 in the shell of a former PMU betting parlor, placing his money on sincere small-plates, a populist booze program, and a boldly central location. Over the course of a few years and a few conceptual tweaks, Martin the bar-restaurant has blossomed into a booming shabby-chic nightspot, the social anchor of the haute-Marais, one of the few wide terraces in Paris offering truly excellent cuisine at accessible prices.

In Other Words

Lucky Miam (2018) says Martin offers a beautiful demonstration of inventive cuisine and applauds its festive ambience at night. 

Paris Food Affair (2015) praises Martin as “one of the best deals in town,” and draws attention to its “open windows and free flowing terrace space.” 

Time Out (2015) calls Martin cosy and says the restaurant’s small plates and reasonable prices are perfectly suited to those with a small appetite at dinner.

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2015) “Martin is a discreet, welcoming, and forthrightly egalitarian little all-day bistrot, aimed at inadvertent tastemakers… those who have certain standards, with regards to food and wine, but who don’t need to see them exceeded at every meal… Martin is gloriously off-trend, and kind of a godsend.”

John Talbott (2015) wonders “What’s all the fuss all about? The carte is nothing special and to spoil the story, neither is the food.” [Editor’s note: Talbott only ever visits at lunch and Martin has since ceased doing lunch service]

Figaroscope (2015) says this is somewhere between tradi and arty and appreciates their terrine of tête de veau with gribiche, as well as the duck breast with lentils.

The Wall Street Journal (2014) “It may look like a no-frills neighborhood cafe, but… in the evening, there are finger foods like oysters with walnut vinegar and fried pigs’ ears with aioli. The wine list is packed with gems.”
