Cannot believe we only discovered this place after 100 visits to Paris! Hidden in a "cour", you could easily miss it but you won't as people are queueing up in long lines to get in. You will be whisked inside once they have the number of seats available for your party. The place is buzzing with diners and good old... More

Everything was as a friend told me. Long queue to get in, but it really worths. It could be one of the cheapest and best restaurants in the city. The waiters were all the time with us and the food was good, and good price. You really have to go if you're in Paris!

Despite the long wait, you get the chance to taste typical, French food for a maximum of 25 euros. Choucroute au top!

While visiting Paris with my friends, we asked our hotel concierge to recommend us a restaurant to celebrate mi birthday and he immediately gave us this name, he advised us that the lines to get a table sometimes were very long but for our luck we just waited 5 minutes. When we walked inside i understood why. The decoration is... More

No nonsense restaurant in an historic place. An experience . Even the waiters were polite! Fast, efficient and worth the wait outside!

Bouillon Chartier is a kind of Dinosaur, a kind of element out of the present, I love it, but, as things known, the success is a little fatal. Too many tourists, but the experience has to be encountered . Go and feel as in the 19th century.

Great atmosphere and service. We waited in line outside the restaurant for 20 minutes to get a table (Monday night). If you struggle with French then you will find it challenging. The waiters are full on flat out and don't have much time for customer interaction but are brilliant to watch. Our food was below par and came out really... More

With its typical French train station look and typical French waiting staff, great ambiance to go with excellent food. Menu is typical traditional French. Waiters take orders on the table mat. During rush hours one may have to share tables with strangers., but that adds to the typical ambience as well. Definitely worth trying

This restaurant is an experience and every visit to Paris includes coming here. I brought my family and all agreed this was the best meal of out trip to Paris. Don't expect anything other than plain fare. Do not expect pleasant waiter service. You will be seated with others. You will wait in a long queue. We saw a fight... More

If you want an authentic French restaurant with serious heritage , go to this place. It is big, lots of people, very lively ,good French home made style food. Waiters are great , your order is written on the paper table cover. Families, real French family place.

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.
