Great location and lovely experience

Whilst renovation going on outside, inside was a great experience with lovely views of outside and unusual designed interior. Food and service good, excellent red Sancerre, delicious bread, simple tasty starters and I had a superb risotto. As usual in Paris, not cheap.

I was invited with a group of friends on a Saturday for lunch to celebrate two milestone birthdays. I was early so went to the restroom first. Very strange area with a large trough like sink in the middle of the room with men's toilets on one side and women's toilets on the other. The toilets smelled bad, were not... More

Down the street from the Opera house. I would say it's half way between the Louvre and the Oprea house. Great to people watch. Food was good and beer was cold.

I'm so glad that I stumbled across this gem of a restaurant! My husband and I were visiting Paris for our anniversary and we were looking for a good restaurant to celebrate our special occasion. We chose L'Opera Restaurant and we were immediately amazed at how stunning the ambiance and decor are throughout the restaurant. It is a beautiful setting... More

I discovererd this amazing place thanks to my best friend Anna (who is in love with French food). We though it would be full of tourists like us, but honestly, it’s a real French restaurant, full of French people, and we did not meet many other tourists. Not a bad thing aniway. I had a “roasted fillet of salmon, four... More

The service was great, the location was perfect, the food was horrible. The proteins were good, but the sides were inedible. Mine was an eggplant puree that was like baby food both in texture and blandness. My appetizer, which was one of the two that were "chef-touched" was snap peas with peanuts and no salt whatsoever. Thank goodness we drank... More

This establishment appears to be geared only towards naive tourists who happen to be around Opera area... Staff and management have zero respect for customers and their comfort, even after a business lunch with a EUR250 bill for 3... The seating plan is flawed (expect to possibly get wet or heavily sunburnt on your backs on some seats on the... More

Two years ago, I took my family to Guy Savoy in Paris, spent 1000 Euros and left very dissapointed, a bit hungry and feeling ripped off. This dinner was far, far less expensive and I left feeling quite satisfied. I had we had the salmon and the quinoa as starters, both really good and reasonable portions for a starter. We... More

We were a party of 6 who had gathered for a business meal with great expectations - imagine - eating at L'Opera! When we were there, scaffolding graced the exterior, which impacted our first impressions. The interior was very modern, with red chairs and accessories which contrasted unimpressively with the grand structure. Our meal was average - I had prawn... 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.
