My friends and I accidentally stumbled upon this restaurant whilst looking for the infamous Le Passage du Grand Cerf. One champagne turned into another as it was my 40th birthday (we were travelling from Australia) and the staff made us feel so instantly welcome we stayed on for hours.

Situated in an interesting part of Paris, there is much to survey and peruse as you sip a beverage, be it coffee or liquor or tuck into a hearty, tasty and fresh meal at La Cantine.

The typical french bistro "La cantine des Pieds Nickeles" is a few minutes away from the famous Rue Montorgueil, situated between two "Passages", the passage du "Bourg l'abbe" and the Passage "du grand Cerfs". The food is fresh, we buy our ingredients daily. The young and passionate chef changes dishes every day, according to the seasons. Good meat, fresh fish, simply but tastly cooked.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
