Great Before or After Palais Garnier Productions or Tours

Just across a side street from the grand entrance to the Palais Garnier, this café is great for small treats or full meals. The service is very good and the food very enjoyable. It is a great place to wait if you get to the Opera too early, and also a great place to rest after taking the walking... read more

I have visited this restaurant on a regular basis from the time I was a poor student and I still go back. The menu consists of a variety of food to suit all customers. The service is very good and the atmosphere is as French as it can possibly get. They serve lunch and dinner. There is normally "happy hour"... More

I've been coming here for years. It's in the middle of the most touristy area of Paris, and yet the experience eating here is very French. The food is classic bistro, the dining areas have unexpected gorgeous views of L'Opera. The service is classic correct bistro service. The wine list is classic bistro, good values. There are always french businessmen... More

We ate here twice on our trip as there aren't many breakfast venues open early in the area. They serve breakfast sets including one with an English breakfast (Ham and cheese omelette) and a few a la carte choices (croissants, tartines etc). Service is quick and efficient. Food is average.

I first ate here more than 20 years ago, and have fond memories of it as a 'stretch' restaurant for me at that time. My wife and I have visited periodically since then and l'Entracte never fails to disappoint (although the tarte aux framboises that we so fondly recall from the 90s is never in season when we visit!). This... More

We were seated upstairs which was lovely and quiet in a nice room with bottles all round on display. The waiter was friendly although very busy with our area and the one slightly lower down. Having said that we didn't have to wait long for our meals at all. We had a steak which was cooked perfectly for a medium.... More

We had a light lunch here of soup, bread, and wine. We were upstairs with a nice view of the Opera house. The room was understaffed and thus the service was not the best. Half of us were served food quite a bit later than the others. The food was about what I would expect from an average Paris cafe.

The best thing about this restaurant is sitting at tables upstairs in front of the wall to wall window overlooking the Opera Palais Garnier. The food is good brasserie fare and the staff are friendly if a bit brusque, maybe also a touch jaded due to its popularity.

Walking in, this is a crowded, fun little bistro. Waitstaff is friendly. We had an excellent dorado and a very mediocre salmon lunch. French onion soup was more like gravy but tasty. Waitstaff seemed frazzled and overworked but again, very nice. It shouldn't take much for the management to make this an excellent restaurant but 1) they need to better... 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.
