Nice Place. Very Pricey

We ate in the full restaurant. The place was beautifully appointed on a lovely corner by the Opera House. We sat indoors. It was about 9pm on a Monday night but still rather busy. I would say the food was good but very high priced compared to similar experiences we've had in the U.S. The wine... read more

We came in at around 11pm And had two salads and 3 glasses of wine And one cocktail. Prize 95€. The salads were 24€. I would have been comfortable for paying 12€ And that was still over estimating the quality. We originally asked for a Bottle of the house wine And two Cuba Libres. We got 1 Cuba And one... More

The Cafe de la Paix is a great place to eat. We were lucky to find a place around 1:00 PM for lunch. It is beautifully decorated inside and outside. The service is exceptional and the food excellent. We will dine there again.

Always a place of rendezvous but now exclusive & pricey. It was oce said that you couldn't si there for.more than 10 minutes without meeting someone you I knew--something which I personally verified in visits past, Now unlikely--more a monument than a meeting place.

Cafe de la Paix, this is one of the famous Parisian restaurants, with a great tradition, known from historical reports, attended at a time by world celebrities. One could expect everything on the highest level. This is true - but to some extend only. The interior is splendid, very impressive.

We had lunch here on a Friday in May, in the more casual inside section, not the fancier restaurant dining room. We could have had a table outside as well, with a view of the Opera House, but we just came from doing a tour of the Opera House, so we decided to go inside. It was very beautiful and... More

We ordered two cups of champagne, and they brought them. After twenty minutes, they brought a bowl with peanuts. After half an hour I asked for the paper napkins. The personnel looked tired, and was not sufficiently polite, in my opinion.

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.
