Very good traditional French menu. Reasonable prices and big quantities of main dishes. Friendly stuff and nice warm atmosphere. The o my thing I didn't like was that the tables were so close to each other. Recommended for some big tasty French meal

Had lunch with a colleague. An egg starter came in a little pot with what I assume was cream and herbs. So good! I trusted the place enough to have steak tartare. Very good. Very cute decor. My Canadian credit cards didn't work although they've worked all over town before and since.

A must visit to this hidden gem. If we had not been staying at an hotel on the same road we would have missed the experience. We were made to feel very welcome, and the food was wonderful especially the puddings... and not a bad price.

We didn't mean to come here. We'd tried another, fully-booked restaurant nearby, and were keen to find an alternative without going far. This one had a write-up in Time Out which - on the face of it - didn't really appeal, being all about how a group of chaps had got together to recreate their mothers' cooking. I had visions... More

While navigating the cobblestones on one of the streets near Rue Republique, we stumbled into this lovely eatery. Most fo the customers were French and many appeared to be local business men and women. The food was tasty and nicely presented. The wine selection was interesting. We had a full-flavored rose from Provence to accompany a salmon tartare salad. The... More

I visited this restaurant with some colleagues who knew Paris very well and advised me that this was a fantastic restaurant. I was definately not disappointed! We went on a Saturday night (which conincided with the festival of music) so it was busy but we had booked a table which was ready for us. The theming of the place was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood 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, theaters, 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.
