Disappointed that we couldn't get into Colbert on short notice- we tried it's little sister and were NOT disappointed. While the menu was traditional French and the atmosphere not up to it's big brother- the food and prices were a treat! We sat upstairs and...More

Rented an apartment on same street, so we ate here twice. Once for lunch, then for dinner. Both times we got traditional French favorites recommended to us by our server. From A-Z, excellent food and friendly service.

The ambience and the décor is nice and cosy. The service is friendly and you feel welcome and relaxed, even when the restaurant is full. As main course, I had Fish & Chips, which was a slight disappointment. It looked very nice when being served,...More

In Paris, we stayed close by the restaurant and were looking forward to eating there since it looked authentic and French. We ordered snails to try them out but were unimpressed. The burgers we later ordered were raw and had to be sent to the...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

You can get an appetiser for between 8 and 15 euros and a main course for between 10 and 20 euros. My bill for a family of 4 with wine was approx 140 euros
