The building is very beautiful and nicely decorated but the service is terrible. They put us in the same table with other couple, so forget about privacy. The guy was drunk and started talking to us non stop. The food arrived cold and the portions...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
