There are a lot of very bad Mexican restaurants in Paris, but this is one of the best. We had a very good meal at a reasonable price in a cute bistro setting with charming service. Very happy. Not San Antonio, but who expected that???

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
