A small brasserie type restaurant that offers quick hot food and wine or beer, etc., with a convivial atmosphere. My colleague had beef burger and fries which he said were ok. I optimistically chose samosas for a starter and tandoori chicken for a main. Neither of the 'Indian' dishes had anything remotely Asian about them except for the little dishes... More

The cheese plate was enjoyable. We were in the restaurant at the same time the White dinner was taking place at Place Vendome, and just after the after work... More

Staying at the park Hyatt and walked down the street and found the place. It is a pub/restaurant so wasn't expecting much but were surprised with the quality of the food. Had some great lamb masala and tandoori chicken. Looked like only three people working (waitress, bar tender, and cook) and it was a full but service was excellent. Inexpensive... More

We were too early for dinner but they have some items on a bar menu. We had a platter with slices of baguette, salami, prosciutto, cheese and a small lettuce salad with delicious dressing. We made a leisurely meal with wine after which we had a delicious tarte tatin (apples) with ice cream. When we departed we noticed a large... More

My wife and I thought this place would be great according to all the reviews and while her meal was good mine was horrid. I ordered the sausage and frites (AAAA) and was told it will be spicy. ...not only was it not spicy but it was the grossest combination of meat stuffed into a casing that I have ever... More

My husband and I went yesterday after seeing high reviews on TripAdvisor. I had a great meal, it was an assortment of delicious food like skewered chicken, beef, a few wontons, rice, cabbage salad and more. My husband got the AAAAA sausage and frites and it was a 14£ plate of fries because the sausage was not edible. The waitress... More

We stumbled on this hidden pub seeking a late lunch but despite their kitchen having closed, they offered us cheese, charcuterie, tartines or salad. We both enjoyed our large salads and the lack of tourists.

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.
