At that time, when i've been there, it was really nice, 'cause you could find at every corner a bar, restaurant or coffe bar, where you could eat and drink something. I had pleasant experiences with the Chinese restaurant and bar next to Gare de Lyon, try it, if you are there.
The people were some kind of friendly, even they saw you beeing a tourist, however, they don't speak too much English. Also, it may not be easy to find your way, because most of the inscriptions, even on public places are in French only.
