Start with the Foie Gras, and try the Beef Filet. Finish the meal with a good Port, and life is good, Service... More

We actually stumbled upon the Cafe de la Paix by chance. It is sumptuously decorated inside, but we were shown to a table on the terrace, overlooking the Opera House. What a view on a sunny Spring day! The food is good, but not cheap and the waiting staff, as others have commented, seem a little distracted. We asked for... 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.
