Average, only because of the decor

Beautiful setting in the opera house was the only reason for the 3 star rating. The steak was average and cold, cooked to their "recommended" medium which I'm pretty sure was precooked, topped with store bought potato crisps, potatoes and gravy that came along were also luke warm. After we sat... read more

This was my second visit, the first last year was excellent and the food & service was 5*. Our visit last week was the complete opposite, when I asked for a veggie option I was told no it's not possible. Then I said ok, can I have a starter made into a bigger meal & again I was told no,... More

We were staying in the area, so had a cocktail reception and diner at this restaurant (Also behind the scenes tour at the Opera). Service was horrible and it was a very bad value. They crowded us into a very tight space for the cocktail reception, so that no one could make it to the bar or food table -... More

We enjoyed an excellent lunch, with great service. This restaurant is a wonderful haven from the noise and bustle in the heart of Paris. Food and wines were excellent. Not the cheapest place to have lunch, but well worth it for the quality of the experience.

If you have not toured the Paris Opera house ,you should ,it is the most magnificent in Europe. We only had drinks in the restaurant but enjoyed it very much. The Operea house is an historic landmark and as such,when they built The restaurant,nothing in it could touch the structure of the building. Quite a challenge. So it is worth... More

We finished our city tour and we happy to find good service, good food an good wine. It may be more expensive than other places - but as we tried the Eiffeltower restaurant we would choose this restaurant again before others. our kids (8+14) enjoyed also the food and architecture. Thank you

This restaurant is in the L´Opéra Garnier complex. A beautiful project, exquisite food, nice services. Of course, it can cost a bit higher than other places, depending on what you eat, but il vaut la peine! Lunch or dinner, a good choice.

Ate here in the evening with my wife. We both had a starter which was prawn ravioli in an asian broth, it was really good. I had lemon pollock on a bed of leeks with some creamed potato and my wife had lamb. Washed it all down with a nice Puligny-Montrachet.

It is hard to compete in Paris. The space is nice especially large windows. Food good but would not be a place that I would come back given so many great restaurants.

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.
