L'ENTRACTE RESTAURANT

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

A friend and I attended a ballet at the Palais Garnier and contemplated grabbing food at the Cafe de la Paix but the place felt a bit stuffy and prices were a bit steep for pretty basic dishes. So we walked a few steps over to L'Entracte, saw it was bustling and decided to walk in. Our waiter was super... More

We had two coffees, and two pain au chocolats. Very nice and good view of the opera house. Didn't speak English so had to polish my rusty French accent!

We stopped here for a drink after visiting the Palais Garnier. It was a really nice place to stop, since it is right across from the Palais and you have time to take it in. Service was very good, but we didn't try the food so we can't comment on that.

As I entered this crowded restaurant, I was not ushered to a table but was kept waiting till I approached a wait staff and inquired if there was a table available. Very hastily, he pointed to me to head on upstairs. I walked up the wooden staircase and once again found myself in a crowded room. I scanned around the... More

We got to the Paris Opera House a little early so stopped here for breakfast. We sat outside and even though it was in the high 40s, the heaters gave plenty of warmth. Breakfast was fast and yummy and was a great location to people watch.

We had lunch after our opera house visit, we had no booking, but the maître de found us a space. The only negative comment: the decor, in my opinion, did not suit the location. Ultra modern and very colourful. Good food, good presentation, absolutely excellent service. Otherwise 6 stars.

Worth the trip to this cafe to see the wood paneling everywhere, and brass fixtures at the bar and upstairs. I took some pictures. The food was very well executed, served politely and professionally. I enjoyed my lunch and my husband did as well. I had cod fish, poached and tender with a Hollandaise sauce and petit peas. The peas... More

We were in Paris in November 2012 and had just finished a nighttime bus tour. We were tired and hungry. Where to find something to eat at 10:30 at night? We came upon this place accidentally and loved it. The view of the Paris Opera is wonderful and food is good, basic bistro fare, which is just what we were... 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.
