This restaurant was down the street from our hotel, and due to convenience more than anything else, we dined here our first night in Paris. I immediately fell in love with everything about it -- the staff, the atmosphere, the numerous French "regulars," and most...More

This restaurant was around the block from our hotel and we ate here twice! Celebrated my daughter's 16th birthday. Wonderful service and food. How can you beat sitting outside on a nice Paris evening!

Just a few blocks off the main boulevards is this little two-story restaurant tucked on a small side street. The cuisine is traditional French and the desserts are rich. I couldn't finish my lamb dish, there was just too much. Service is attentive and pleasant....More

Our dining experience was perfect in every way from our friendly greeting from the manager until we left this gem of a Bistro near the Paris Opera. The restaurant had been highly recommended and it still exceeded our high expectations. The setting was relaxed yet...More

Typical French bistro with good food. Initially we were a bit thrown away by the waiters who were rushing and acting as if the place was a fast food restaurant. We started with the lentil salad (delicious), and then we had the lamb (very good)...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
