Visiting Pike’s Place – Place Pigalle is a must!

place_pigalle_logoTRPlace Pigalle is a fabulous restaurant. Scrumptious food, spectacular views of Puget Sound and history to take in (seedy watering hole in 1909). If you’re downtown Seattle, close to Pike’s Place Market or at the Market be sure to stop in and have lunch or dinner at this restaurant. Place Pigalle is one of my favorites and my family’s favorites. When my father visits he insists we all go (including the twins) and have lunch – beet salad, crab cakes, scallops and of course white wine! The crab cakes are the best I’ve tasted in Seattle. Note: they are known for the exceptional seafood dishes sourced locally and served by friendly staff. This restaurant is great for a date night, lunch with the in-laws, girls’ luncheon or a business meeting.

It’s a bit tricky to find– it’s on the edge of the Market. You need to go to the big brass pig, under the famous Pike’s Place Market Sign where the fishmongers throw the fish (as seen in the movie Splash! And Sleepless in Seattle), venture left and travel between the butcher and the fishmonger and you’ll see a fluorescent sign and the view. There are a few steps down to the entrance so strollers can be left up behind the fishmonger.


  1. Delicious! We really appreciated this recommendation Paula – we enjoyed a Fathers Day celebration meal here and it blew us away! The food was exceptional and the service was very prompt & considerate. My mum and I were thrilled with the halibut & pineapple salsa special, my dad had a bouillabaisse which he says is the best he’s ever tasted and my hubby enjoyed every last flake of his sea scallops. Eight thumbs up.
